Kolton Legos

When We Hope They Will Forget…

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

He had worked so hard on his Lego creation. For over an hour he had sat at the kitchen table carefully piecing each block in place. I’m not sure if it slipped or if his little brother reached up and grabbed it. But the next thing I knew, it was shattered into a million pieces…

To the Mom With the Cozy Coupe in Her Living Room

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

There has been a red Fisher Price Cozy Coupe parked in my living room for the last five years. We bought our first little plastic car when my oldest son turned one. He enjoyed climbing inside and eating his snack and putting his drink in the cup holder in the back. For the most part,…

10 Resolutions Every Mom Should Make (They’re Not What You Might Think)

Friday, January 1st, 2016

So it is January 1st and all across the world people are starting fresh. We have rest our hopes, our aspirations, our plans, and made new resolutions. It is the one time of year when we all say, “Anything is possible. What do I want to change?” As a momma, however, the reality of our…

Doing Better Than You Think

Momma, You’re Doing Better Than You Think

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

I stood there in the middle of the elementary school crying. As she told me about what had happened on the playground, I just couldn’t help it. I couldn’t keep back the tears. I had dropped Kolton off at school this morning just like every other morning (except this morning we weren’t the last ones…

I’ll Eat Every Meal Cold if It Means You’re With Me

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

I eat most of my meals cold – if I get to eat at all. I don’t prefer cold food. I actually really like eating hot food – especially when I have spent a lot of my own time cooking it. But usually, I am too busy cutting food into toddler sized bites, or blowing…

A Different Sort of Stretch Mark

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

I put this stinky cream on my belly twice a day while I was pregnant with my son in an attempt to avoid stretch marks. I read that certain foods helped with skin elasticity and that there were vitamins I could take to help my skin heal as well. But if the lotions and the…

Why I Let Her Dress Like That in Public

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

Getting my daughter dressed for school is one of my least favorite parts of my morning routine. Well, that is until today. Today, I decided to do things a little differently. I guess if we want to be technical, I actually made this decision late last night after my four year old had finally fallen…

To the Momma of the Anxious Child

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

Okay, we’ve done this every morning for the last nine weeks. It’s the same classroom, the same teachers, the same kids. We know how the morning will go, and that mommy comes to pick you up after you play outside and you eat your snack. It’s the same every single day. So, today, we’re just…

An Open Letter to Carrie Underwood (and Every Other Mom) Concerning Mom-Guilt:

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Today, I was scrolling through Facebook while my kids played quietly with toys. For the record, I give my kids 100% of my attention. I do not ignore them, but when they are entertaining themselves, I will take my own mental health break and scroll mindlessly for a few minutes through my newsfeeds. (Also, I’m…

I Had a Miscarriage

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

It was a simple picture posted to social media. A man sitting behind his wife with his arms wrapped around her… hands gently resting on the sides of her tummy. She wore the world’s brightest smile and a shirt that read, “Momma-To-Be.” It was how they would announce… We are expecting! It had only been…

To the Momma of the Strong-Willed Child

Monday, September 28th, 2015

I can’t remember where I saw you last. It might have been the grocery store – the place that most mommies dread – but the place you especially dislike visiting. There are too many opportunities for hard there. Hard as in, “No, we can’t have that thing you want today and there isn’t anything I’m…

For My Daughter and For Yours

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

Yesterday, I took a picture with my daughter and posted it to Facebook. In the caption, I wrote: “She thinks you’re beautiful momma. You are just her favorite. They say that the relationship between a girl and her momma changes over time. They warn us that one day our little girls might not be our…

The Best of Me

Friday, July 24th, 2015

  Well, the day is over. The kids are in bed, and I’m sitting here knowing that tomorrow pretty much looks just like today. Because while the details might be slightly different, the pattern of endless giving and caring and pouring my heart out won’t change. This… is my day. (Maybe you can relate.) Wake…

“Let Me Hold the Baby” & Other Sexy Things My Husband Says

Monday, July 20th, 2015

He came in from a long day of work and took his boots off by the front door. I was standing in the living room trying to fold the clothes with one arm while holding a baby with the other. Our oldest two had abandoned the Disney Junior show that they were watching, and had…

To My Husband: Now That You Are Daddy

Friday, June 19th, 2015

  When we were dating, I liked to imagine what you would be like as a daddy someday. You would do something funny, and I would think, “Awww. See. He’s going to be such a fun dad.” Or you would do something purposefully kind, and I would say to myself, “Yes! He’s going to be…
