On the days I do not run, I have back pain. On the days I do run, I sometimes have back pain, but it seems like it is not as bad. My sweet husband helps rub my sore muscles for me, just as I rub his back when he needs it. He generally has tension in his lower back; mine is at the top.…Continue

Ok, don't panic. This is a different year, new teacher and you have a new opportunity to get a new game plan for this year's Open House.
This year's open house is…Continue

I am a back sleeper. I try not to be, because I am more likely to snore when I sleep on my back (sorry, honey!). So, I try to sleep on my side, but I know that at some point during the night, I will roll over to my back.…Continue

By 2pm, those enthusiastic statuses looked a little uglier, grimmer, and much more stress filled. A new school year involves lots of moving parts, but what are some of the ways you and your family can make back-to-school an organized…Continue

"You wanna wear that?!?!?"
This was the response I silently whispered to myself when my tween, Flower, walked into the room one day wearing an outfit she had picked out.
Oh lawd, I knew this day would come sooner than later. After all, at the time, she was around 7 years old.…Continue

I have really been in a funk lately. My mind has been a whirlwind of emotions & thoughts. Ever since my youngest, my baby, turned 4years old I have been giving myself a hard time. I feel this pressure, entirely from myself, but pressure no less, to work. Not that I don’t work now, in fact I feel like this is the hardest I have ever worked in my life! My husband and I are a bit old school. He works outside the home. I do all the household chores, all things clothes and food…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who is thankful their child has gone back to school after a long, long winter holiday.
I could almost hear the sighs of relief as weary mothers and overwhelmed fathers dropped their children off at the schoolyard. I could see the corners of the parents mouths turned up, readily offering…

I cannot be the only one…who has watched their child heading for imminent disaster, opened your mouth to call out a warning to them, but knew perfectly well that fate’s plan was for them to fall. This was exactly the scenario Sonny Boy and I experienced on our precarious neighborhood walk to scope out Christmas lights yesterday afternoon.…
