Trying to tame The Blerch

From the end of my first trimester until about five weeks before I delivered, I was at the gym working out five days a week, and then doing prenatal yoga on weekends. This was NOT to maintain my “sexy physique” (I can’t even write the phrase “sexy physique” without rolling my eyes– NOT how I […]

Home all week with your kids unexpectedly? Last minute ideas for fun!

I do love spending time with my children; after all I am a stay at home mother. However sometimes there are types of “play” that I’m not all that crazy about. I actually like imaginary play, art projects, food projects, and Lego building. I despise having to dress up the dollies over and over again […]

On Being a Working Mom

For as long as I’ve been a contributing writer on this blog, I’ve wanted to talk about what it means to be a working mom.  I keep thinking of things that would be great to write about, that I’m sure every working mom has to deal with, but I can never seem to really put […]

Life’s Longing for Itself

I have had an earworm for a few days now. It’s Kahlil Gibran’s poem “On Children” or rather the Sweet Honey in the Rock song version. Go on and listen for a bit. It’s really good. I’ll be right here waiting for you. Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s […]

A Story of Beauty in the Midst of Loss

1 in 4 pregnancies end in a miscarriage. As of a few weeks ago, I can now count myself as part of this statistic. While I’ve struggled with several chemical pregnancies, I had yet to experience a miscarriage and had two uneventful pregnancies that resulted in two beautiful, healthy daughters. We found out we were […]

That Friend

Growing up I counted myself lucky. I had a family, a home, and some pretty spectacular friends. It wasn’t until I had my own children, years later, that I could fully appreciate just how spectacular they were. There are two that helped me through countless trials.
