Why I Let My Son Draw in the Dirt at His T-Ball Game

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

  This is my son. He is five years old. He loves Legos, pretending to be any form of super hero, and whatever “screen time” I will allow him. He sleeps with a special blanket. He would eat his weight in sweets if I were to let him, and he loves Jesus like a friend.…

The Real Happily Ever After

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Like so much of the rest of the world, I was glued to my TV when Kate married William… I mean when Her Royal Highness Catherine Elizabeth, The Duchess of Cambridge married His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, Duke of Cambridge. It felt like I was watching a real-life fairytale playing out on…

The Hardest Day of the Year

Friday, May 8th, 2015

Every year, you think it will be easier. You think that the last 365 days have prepared you to face it. You know that it is coming. You see the ads on TV. You see the stores set out their timely displays. And you tell yourself that this year will not be quite as painful.…

Momma’s First Mother’s Day

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Hey, Momma? There are a few things that I want to tell you. I just don’t have the words… yet. We’re still figuring this out – you and me. The early mornings and the long nights are hard. I know that you’re tired…. ALWAYS tired. Even on the nights when we both get a little…

#NoMoreMommyBullies

Friday, April 17th, 2015

I tell my children all of the time to, “Play nice.” Do you know why? Do you know why I teach this lesson to my children? Because how we interact with others matters, because compassion is important, and because nobody likes a bully. I get a lot of hate mail. No, really… I get countless…

Why We Are Going To Get Up And Do It All Again Tomorrow

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

It’s been a long day hasn’t it? Maybe your long day began before mine did. I’m just now cleaning up the kitchen after dinner, but today felt long beginning around 9:00 am this morning. We were out of milk, which made cereal for breakfast… difficult. The shirt that we really wanted to wear was in…

She Might Not Tell You, But I Will… The Joke Is Still Over

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

In 2014, I wrote this article,– and it spread like wildfire. I heard from people all across the globe who agreed, and others who used some pretty strong language to tell me how much they disagreed. But out of all of it, I noticed one thing. It started a discussion. And sometimes? All it takes…

From Love – A Letter to the Momma Who Feels Spread Thin

Monday, March 16th, 2015

To the Momma Who Feels Spread Thin, I saw you running to the soccer fields the other day. Running late to practice, you had to park at the back of the lot, and you knew that you were the last family there. Your son ran ahead looking for his team likely already doing drills. You…

My Body Broken for You

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

I had this mission. Lose all the baby weight. It seemed like a simple goal. Nursing helped. Watching my sugar intake helped. Eating healthy and getting exercise… it all helped. Even though I should be clear that my version of exercise is chasing three kids around. Well, two and a newborn. I have this friend…

To the Mom Who Vacations at Target

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

Before I begin, I need to say this. Dear Target, thank you on behalf of moms everywhere. You just get us. “I think we are out of trash bags,” I said one evening to my husband after he came home from work. We had a three month old baby boy who was nursing, and I…

Yes! Another “To the Momma” Post.

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

A few weeks ago, I overheard a conversation at the store between a husband and wife about how many “mom posts” were being shared Facebook. As a blogger, I couldn’t help but listen to their exchange. (Also, they were talking loudly and they were right in front of me in line.) The husband said, “Aren’t…

What I Really Want…

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

I think about you constantly. You are never far from my thoughts. From the moment I wake up and all throughout my day, you are always on my mind. And when I am awake at night, all I can think about is how much I will need you tomorrow. I don’t want to go one day…

The World’s Worst Mom

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

My patience was hanging on by a thread. They had spent the morning playing with play doh and coloring and reading and dragging out all of their toys and FIGHTING. There had been tons of fighting. I had my four month old on my hip as I put away the dishes when they came running…
