To The Dads

Dads show love to their children so differently than moms do and it’s everything they need. Usually our focus is on mothers and women, but that isn’t meant to ever devalue the fathers of the world. Fathers are amazing people and they should be celebrated. So in honor of Father’s Day we want to celebrateContinue reading “To The Dads”

Feeling Like A Failure Lately

Ironic isn’t it? I preach about stopping the self-doubt and how we’re not failures because no one’s perfect and we all have our days. Yet here I am feeling like a failure. Feeling like I’m not living up to the mom I know I can be. Feeling completely depleted and like I have nothing leftContinue reading “Feeling Like A Failure Lately”

My House My Rules

As my kids get older, more of their friends are coming over. Whether that’s for a playdate, to stay the night, birthday parties, etc. It’s nice knowing most of them like to come hang out here.

Not a fan of being told I can’t go anywhere though. I’m an adult, I can do what I want, at leastContinue reading “The Best Thing About Quarantine”

Things We Live By In Our House

Over the years the most valuable lessons my children have learned have come from life itself. Lessons learned because life presented us the opportunity to teach them, to implement them. Rarely has any of them been planned lessons. I think that’s the toughest part of parenting – thinking on your feet and teaching lessons asContinue reading “Things We Live By In Our House”
