You Don’t Have to Cherish the Moments

As a new mom, you hear a lot of cliches. As a mom of twins, I got a lot of, “Bless your hearts,” and the understated, but equally unhelpful, “Wow, your hands sure are full!” every time I left the house. The grocery store was my own personal hell. I would have one twin screaming […]

Thanksgiving Mood

Thanksgiving is usually a time where people remember the things they are thankful for. It’s a time for families to get together over a grand meal and fellowship together.

A Nose Ring, A Bikini, and 37… Oh My!

Yep! For my 37th birthday, I got my nose pierced. And it was not some subconscious way to reconnect with my youth. And I was not having a mid life crisis; it’s still a little too early for that. People are living way longer than 74! For me, it became about making a very outward […]

I asked Internet Strangers for Parenting Advice

And it almost backfired.  Half experiment, half parenting desperation, I turned to one of those giant national groups on Facebook where the most you have in common with the other members is that you’re all moms. My {just turned} six-year-old has been hitting his barely two-and-a-half year old sister lately. And the other evening he […]
