I was recently asked my opinion on openly breastfeeding in public. It fascinates me this is an issue with the current fashion trends. I am actually surprised anyone could take offense to a baby being nourished in the mall when a half-naked 15-year-old is standing in line at the cookie factory. I am no moreRead More
Sunday, our 14-year-old daughter Sophie, in spite of inconvenience beyond measure, finagled her way to church. I know, appalling behavior, don’t worry she’s grounded for a week. We live thirty minutes from our church, on a ranch. I was out of town, 3 hours away. My husband was home alone with Sophie, Sam and CharlieRead More

“So, what did you do today?” He asked with such minimalism. Physically I couldn’t keep up with my dear husband. Once, in an effort to gain his attention to break for lunch, two of his employees form tackled him. He moves like he is trying out for the mile in the next Olympic races. WhenRead More

In our house, there are a number of ways to wake Justin and me. Screaming your head off for, yet another, bottle in the middle of the night or even pooping your pants is very effective. Our teenage sons like to watch horror flicks and cook bacon and sing, loudly, at all hours of theRead More
“What do you do all day?” Truly I say to you – I am asked this often. I stay home. I am a stay-at-home mom. I have worked outside of the home, children in tow. Bravo to every working mom out there, because if you can run a household and manage human beings, you areRead More

“Watch this…” And the worst parent in the world award goes to…. Drum roll…. Me. Thank you, thank you… I try. And I do try. I promise. I love being a mom. Someone said to me, “Oh my! Starting over with babies in your forties!?!?!?! You know you’ll never retire.” My response to this is,Read More
