13 Things I Want For You, My Son

Below is something I posted in April 2010, when my son was home from Korea just a year.  I recently came across this again and wanted to share it again today, since it's such a special day for my family.  This was written before my son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD….which makes it a bit more special to me,  knowing what I know now about the challenges he faces. …

Know The Power Of No

It’s a small word that requires great conviction. It’s a short word with a lifelong lasting impact. It’s a negative that achieves much positive. It’s the power of NO.

In today’s permissive society, it’s YES that’s the ruling force of the day. Parenting books and articles are replete with philosophies, expounding on the importance of understanding your child and showing him endless love. This is crucial, of course. Yet, when parents take these philosophies too far, the result can be a…

How To Get Your Kids To Listen

The most precious gift you've ever received is… your child. Along with this priceless gift, you've also received your most all-encompassing task of raising your child.

Of course, establishing proper discipline is easier said than done. In fact, the most common question asked by parents is “HOW DO I GET MY KIDS TO LISTEN?!” However, there is no “one quick-fix solution,” because so many puzzle pieces must fall into place in order for a home’s harmony to resonate. Presuming that the…

Quiet Activity Idea: Felt Alphabet

We generally struggle to find activities that will occupy the kids during church services on Sunday.  I lug a large tote bag filled with different items each week and pray that we can keep them entertained enough for me to actually listen during the meeting.…

Going on a Nature Walk

Step 1: Collection



On Friday, I handed two cellophane bags to my kids and we took a walk.  They each began collecting small items from nature.  Jellybean was way less selective than Buddy. She also listened better to the instruction: "Don't dump your bag until I get a picture!" …

The parenting curve ball

Jamie greets every morning with a smile, out of bed when the alarm sounds.  With coffee in hand she takes the dog out for a walk, enjoying the birds chattering in the trees above. The sun is shining and Jamie is ready to tackle her ‘To Do’ list, prepared the night before.  Then, reality strikes.

Picture the morning routine of Jamie with an elementary and middle school student, both boys, and throw in Attention Deficit…

Where has the time gone? How do you prepare for kindergarten?

I am constantly amazed at how fast time is flying by. Especially now that I have children. It is incredibly hard for me because my oldest son will be registering for kindergarten soon...Where has the time gone? It was not too long ago that I was up all night with him just about every night for two years and working at a job outside of the home. How I wished for some rest...Then it happened, the night his new baby brother came home from the hospital (which happened to be my oldest…

Dear Donor

Dear Donor,

This letter has been 3 years in the making and many times written and erased. It brings me to tears when I think of all I want to say to you and all I would ask if I meet you. It also puts the realization into the fore front that my children, these three beautiful creatures are not just part of me, but part of an unknown! Everyday I look at them and watch them grow I can clearly see me in them, but the other parts, the ones that are so obviously not me, I can only assume…

None of Your F@*#ing Business!

More often then not I get asked “Did you need help to get pregnant?” “Did you have to use IVF?” “Do twins run in your family?” because I have twins.  My initial reaction is to respond “Non-of your F@*#ing business”, but a smarter part of me tells my brain to answer politely even although it really is no ones business how I became pregnant, they are only asking out of shear curiosity and not meaning me any harm or hurt feelings.  But I also always wonder if they would really want to  hear the…

Letting Go!

Letting go seemed as though it has been a major theme in my life this year. I had to let go of my daughter. She went away to college. I had to let go of my middle son. He went away to college. And I had to let go of my eldest son who transitioned from completing college to entering the workforce. Many people ask me, “How does it feel to know that all of your children are ‘grown’ and ‘gone’. I usually respond, “It feels different!”

Learning to let go can be difficult. For me, I thought…
