Dear Teachers at the End of the School Year

My daughter didn’t talk to her pre-k teachers until nearly the end of the first semester of school. She was intensely shy when it came to new adults, but she communicated easily with her friends. If she needed to use the restroom, she would ask her friend to ask the teacher for her. No matter…

Because Sometimes Motherhood Means Doing it Tired

It’s 5:15, and I’m tired. But I’m here with my three children, and I don’t have the option to just stop. Have you ever felt that way? I am sure that it has been said more eloquently by someone else. I’m sure that there are ways to talk about the deep exhaustion that is motherhood…

Can You Just Stop?

  Can you just stop!? I must holler that across my house half a dozen times a day. Stop fighting with each other. Stop teasing. Stop being big brother(ish) just because you can. Stop complaining. Stop whining. Just stop. Please. Just… stop. I’m not usually upset. It is out of exhaustion more than anything that…

Three Reasons I’m Fighting With My Husband

Parenthood is like the perfect storm holding all of the necessary elements to create intense arguments between a husband and wife. Jared and I discovered this shortly after we brought our first baby home from the hospital. Like most parents, we had no idea what we were doing.

This isn’t the Mom I Want to Be

I yelled. It was the end of the day, and no one was listening… and I just yelled. I’m not talking a raised voice or “you are in the other room and can’t hear me so I’m going to shout.” I yelled. Get back in here, and help me clean up these toys THIS minute!…

Beware of Quicksand: How One Stranger’s Comment Changed My Marriage Forever

I called my husband to ask him a quick question. I knew that he was busy at work, but I hoped my short conversation wouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience. I was wrong. He was right in the middle of an important project. My call had not only taken his attention, it had added…

You Figured it Out

They sent you home with this little life. There was no instruction manual or easy user guide. There wasn’t a cheat sheet. All you had was your baby and your best judgment and God’s endless grace for the new mom. But you figured it out. You figured out what each cry meant. You figured out…

To the Momma Up in the Middle of the Night

Shhhhh. I won’t take much of your time. I know you’re busy. I know you’re tired. And I know that more than anything you wish you were sleeping and your little one (or not so little one anymore) was sleeping too. I thought I might keep you company for a second. I know how lonely…

To The Mommas Who Made It And The Ones Who Didn’t Make It To Church This Morning

  I’ve been known to joke that on the seventh day, God rested… and moms everywhere wondered what that would be like. Let’s be honest, I’m all for rest. Rest is so important. But I’m also a mom of a 6, 4, and almost 2 year old, and those restful moments aren’t always a reality.…

I’ll Hold You

I had just turned off the lamp in my bedroom when I heard her cry from across the house. Just down the hall from her baby brother’s room, her confused words were faintly filtering through the baby monitor on my nightstand. I sat up and started to make my way across the dark living room.…

I Don’t Think I Can Do This

She was on the other side of the wall in the next room. I couldn’t hear what the nurses were saying or her husband or friends. I couldn’t hear what words her family might have spoken to assure her. I couldn’t hear the calm words of the doctor or the likely beeping of the baby…
