End of a Season

My baby season is coming to an end. It's bittersweet to be sure but there's also the scent of looming freedom on the breeze. I wouldn't describe it in the sense of shackles releasing but like a blanket of snow melting in the spring. There's a weight to it. A warm quilt that envelopes your… Continue reading End of a Season

Seasonal Planning

I get caught up in long-term plans. It stretches out endlessly getting looser and holier as I go. But by the time a season has passed I hate how I've blocked out my planner. I loath the font I've chosen. I'm sickened by the schedule I've created. The problem is, I also know the benefits… Continue reading Seasonal Planning

7 Days Without Coffee

Day 1: My body didn't kick the headaches, kids live here and I wasn't caffeinated. Day 2: My body didn't learn to feel energized off of good clean food, kids live here and I wasn't caffeinated. Day 3: I almost drop-kicked everyone in this family at least twice. Kids live here and so does my… Continue reading 7 Days Without Coffee

Sometimes they fight, but I have some sway. Sometimes they hug, and I get my way. They'll have rough days, that… Continue reading Mama, Me

Out Of The Cave and Into The Pool

For us, Winter is about hibernation. We go sledding and stuff but we don't schedule a lot of activities. I'm not going to be on time. I used to be an "early" person, but my kids don't care about that. 4 snowsuits, 4 hats, 4 scarves, 8 boots, 8 mittens, I can't. I just can't… Continue reading Out Of The Cave and Into The Pool

O x 7

Seven. SEVEN? WHAAAAT? How? When? A minute ago he was turning one. Waddle walking around and climbing onto the couch. Now he's seven. Running, jumping, parkouring off of my furniture seven! All of the science says that 6 is a big year. Their brains go through a huge change. Who they really are starts to… Continue reading O x 7

I’m Not Tolerating You

When did words stop having meaning? Or more so, when did we start changing what they mean to fit our agendas? I hate when people preach tolerance. Tolerance? I don't think it means what you think it does. What it means is that even if you are a good person, with a good heart, who… Continue reading I’m Not Tolerating You
