Mommy’s First Christmas

Friday, December 5th, 2014

There are branches wrapped in festive lights, packages arriving in the mail and family is gathering from near and far. But this Christmas is different. This year is even more special, because you got your Christmas gift early. Being a Mommy is wonderful. Isn’t it? Your sweet baby has brought more joy in the short…

To The Momma at Chick-Fil-A

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

I saw you come in with your sweet kids the other day – one on your hip and one around your leg. I watched as you ordered your lunch, and then set the baby on the counter to dig through the diaper bag for your wallet. I wanted to cheer for you as they handed…

Only Good Mommies…

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

I used to think that good mommies were a group of women that did everything right. You know. Good mommies don’t yell. They have endless patience. Good mommies balance life at home and work and every other group/organization they or their kids are a part of. Good mommies have clean houses and do crafts and…

The Day I Stopped Saying, “I Don’t Have Time”

Monday, September 15th, 2014

I bent down and kissed him on the cheek. His sister was holding one of my hands, and I was holding his new baby brother’s carseat with my other arm. “Love you, sweet boy. You have to go into your classroom now. I will be back to pick you up after school.” I turned to…

To the Momma Hanging On By A Thread

Friday, August 8th, 2014

I have no idea what last night was like for you. Maybe you got a great night of sleep and you woke up this morning ready to conquer the day. Or maybe you spent hour after hour holding and rocking and feeding a fussy baby, or a sick baby, or a baby who just refused…

What You Probably Need to Hear the Most Right Now

Monday, July 21st, 2014

My mom answered the phone. “Hey! What are you up to?” I asked casually even though I knew that she was sitting at her desk at work – just like she was every Tuesday at 2:15. I think she answered me, but I wasn’t really listening. Honestly, she could have told me that she was…

To the Pregnant Woman without Options

Friday, June 20th, 2014

His feet roll along the underside of my ribs. I put my hand on the top side of my tummy to feel them as they go by. Precious little feet. In August, those feet will no longer be tucked warmly inside of me. They will be snuggled up in tiny little socks, and kissed a…

The Joke is Over – Why I Hope Not to See Pretend Pregnancy Announcements on April 1st

Friday, March 28th, 2014

Everyone loves a good prank. Well, everyone loves a well-executed, completely harmless, all-in-good-fun prank. What I have seen take place over the last few years on social media sites is none of those things. In the last few years, I have seen an all too common status update on April 1st (April Fool’s Day.) An…

“Well, When I Have Kids…”

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Before I was a mommy, I was a wonderful parent. I knew exactly how children should or shouldn’t behave. Had I been given the opportunity, I could have made all those loud fussy kids in the grocery store or restaurant stop throwing fits. After all, I was sure that when I had kids of my…

Handsome Lives at My House

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

It is not even daylight. The alarm goes off, and I nudge my husband to quickly dismiss it before it wakes our sleeping toddlers. I have been up at least three times in the night with two sick little ones. As I roll over and snuggle back under warm covers, he sits up and throws…

Falling in Love is Not the Greatest Adventure

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

I met my husband at the mall. We don’t have some romantic story of being high school sweethearts. We won’t ever be able to say that we were introduced by mutual friends, or that we met at church camp when we were 15. There were no mysterious drinks sent from across a crowded bar. Nope.…

To Wives: Before You Were “Mommy”

Friday, January 24th, 2014

  When we found out that we were pregnant with my son (now 4), my husband and I became one of those “new parent” couples. We researched together, shopped together and made every choice surrounding the arrival of our new baby together. I’m talking right on down to the discussion of which wipes would represent…

A Poisoned Cupcake: The Truth About Having Children with Food Allergies

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Our town holiday parade was a few nights ago. It is a fun way the community kicks off the holiday season. Businesses on main street stay open late as folks enjoy visiting with one another and window shopping. The parade floats throw candy to the kids sitting on the sidewalks while parents sip on coffee and…

That’s Where Mommy Was…

Monday, September 30th, 2013

I push my babies on the swings in our backyard almost every night. Over the last few months, we have spent hours on those swings. I push, and they giggle and chat and sing and kick their little feet pretending to run through the air. I wouldn’t trade the time that we have spent in…

You are Not My Competition

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

It was 5:15, and I was finally making it to the grocery store. I just needed to grab a few things, and since I had no clue what I was going to make for dinner… a frozen pizza was added to my list. There is only one grocery store in our small town, and I…
