My Kids ARE Pretty Great

Recently I had lunch with a friend whose son goes to the same day school as my daughters and plays on the same soccer team as my son.  Through the course of the lunch we talked about all the normal mom topics:  what to cook for dinner, how school is going, how to discipline certain […]

Go Ahead, Ask Me About Our Adoption

The other day my daughter and I were playing on the playground after school. A kid, around 8 or 9 if I had to guess, came up to us and asked. “Are you her Mom?” “Yep.” I said. “Is she adopted?” he whispered with extra emphasis on the word ‘adopted.’ “You don’t have to whisper […]

Choose Kindness

“You can’t come to my birthday party…” I know every mom on the planet has heard this phrase in some form – whether your child was on the saying or receiving end. Kindness is an invaluable trait and as a mom, it is my job to raise kind children who encourage, help, serve and befriend […]

6 Reasons for Moms to Love Memphis

No one is a stranger and everyone is welcome to drink sweet tea on the back porch. Whether it be a football game or […]

Being Nice to Your Spouse

Recently I had all three of my children in the pediatrician’s office for their annual well baby visits: six year, two year and one year.  While I would love to pretend I am super mom and can handle anything by myself, my husband offered to meet me at the pediatrician’s office to help facilitate the […]

In a World As Broken As Ours

My son asked me two days ago about bad guys. “Mom, are there bad guys in real life?” My firecracker of a son, who is a total sarcastic clown, asked me straight-faced and without a hint of a smile, who he needed to fear in this world. “How do I beat the bad guys, Mom?” […]

My Internet Friends Are Real

And they are amazing. In early November 2013 I nervously logged in to a popular parenting website, navigated my way to my birth month board and made my first post.

What My Children Teach Me about Dementia

My grandmother was one of the strongest women I know. She was smart and business savvy. She was the most organized person and didn’t need Pinterest for inspiration. She knew how to hold her own in conflict or stressful situations. She was hilarious, talented, and oh-so-stubborn.
