Jared! Jared! Something is wrong with Jaxton! I heard him make a noise like he was going to throw up, and when I went in there, he was just lying there with his eyes open. I picked him up and he keeps falling over in my arms. Jared, I can’t get him to wake up…

My Husband Saved My Son’s Life Tonight – But it Could Have Ended Differently

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

That’s not a click-bait title. I honestly couldn’t think of anything better to call this article.

“I’m sorry this is so frustrating, Mom,” my seven year old son said as he hugged me. I should have thanked him, but instead I tried to correct him. “I’m not frustrated. I’m fine.” But even I didn’t believe my short tense words. I wasn’t fooling anyone. He paused and then asked, “Then what are…

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

I was standing in our kitchen after tucking all three of my kids into bed for the night when my oldest son, now seven, came out of his room. I knew the moment his brother and sister heard him out of bed they would follow. “Perfect,” I thought. I had just gotten them all quiet…

Monday, January 16th, 2017

My five year old daughter, Kadence, has this mirror we hung in her room a few birthdays ago so she could pretend to have her own dance studio. (It was in her brief ballerina phase.) I don’t know what it is about that mirror, but she’s always sassier when she stands in front of it.…
