I should start at the beginning. When I was younger, I never wanted to have kids. My dream was to be a nun and live by myself in a house on the beach. And on particularly difficult days, I will confess to occasionally fantasizing about curling up with a book and a giant bowl of ice cream in that quiet beachside…Continue

Yesterday, I watched my 4-year-old daughter take her third round of swim lessons after being a two time Swimming School Drop-Out earlier this year. Caroline has employed many strategies to get out of taking lessons, despite all the bribery I could throw her way. We’ve gone through the “I-can’t-go-because-I’m-still-going-potty” trick.

As a mom, I know that some days, parenting is just hard. Children can be demanding, cranky, destructive (usually accidentally), disobedient, whiny, messy, and just exhausting. However, I have found…Continue

When I was about two weeks into my pregnancy with Bobby, I was made redundant from a job that I had been in for nearly three years. Believing (perhaps wrongly) that I wouldn't be able to get another job in my current condition, I didn't look for anything else, deciding instead to look…Continue

So how do you get your kids to be more independent? Now when I say independent I don't mean I'm going to send my 6 year old down to the corner store by herself -though growing up for me that didn't seem weird at all, but now that I myself am a parent the thought of sending my kids to just roam around by themselves seems terrifying.

Some ways I have allowed my children to be more…Continue

Some of you know that I grew up as a PK – a “pastor’s kid” or “preacher’s kid” – although I guess the correct terminology would be a “minister’s kid” because my dad wasn’t always in a position as the pastor, but he and my mother have always been in ministry of some kind (music ministry, youth…Continue
