I cannot be the only one…who was shocked when my child moved past infancy and was still not sleeping through the night. This is something that no one warns you about when you're pregnant, most likely because they don’t want you to jump off a bridge by overwhelming you with the REAL truths about motherhood, but when the Sonny Boy continued to wake us way past three years of age, I figured I would have a lifetime of exhaustion to look forward to.…

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…

Relationships are so disconnected these days that I often find myself stopping to wonder where exactly we went wrong. I remember growing up as a kid every Christmas my parents would receive so many cards that most of all the doorways in the house would be decorated from top to bottom with tons of Christmas cards they’d received from family and friends. However, those days have long since passed. Just this past Christmas my parents received 2 Christmas cards. The irony is that…

Ever since Title IX guaranteed equal funding for girls' sports programs 40 years ago, we've seen the results in school, the workplace and women's self-confidence. Studies have shown that girls who play sports in high school are more likely to do better in science classes, complete college, avoid substance abuse and join the workforce. And the more time they spend participating in team sports, the higher their self-esteem.
Naturally, there's also an effect on the playing…Continue

There was so much to be done today, lunch and conversation to be had with a close friend, children playing behind us, dishes to be done, laundry to be folded, banana bread to be baked, tent making, giggle inducing, kisses, oh so many kisses, dinner to be cooked, baby food to be made. And amidst it all, I caught these moments, gentle, subtle moments that may have almost escaped me, life changing, breath taking moments. Moments ridiculous to anyone else but me, for me they…Continue

Now that all the mega-lottery winners have stepped forward, the overwhelming odds are you didn't win. Americans spent $1.5 billion in their quest to win the jackpot, fantasizing about how they would happily spend the $656 million to be paid out to the winner. As it happened, there were three winning tickets so the final after-tax take home for each will be about $100 million. Still, nothing to sneeze at.

It happened again today: I caught myself feeling really happy while folding laundry.
It’s such an odd thing because I don’t particularly like folding laundry. Well, it’s not folding the laundry that makes me happy — somehow, looking at our clothes always makes me feel really grateful for all the things I have in my life.

This week, I’m thankful for the beauty and wonder of spring. Just when the days seem to begin heating up, a chilly, foggy day rolls in. Misty clouds float by outside, weaving between the trees out back. (Our home is at 5,000 feet, so we’re actually in the clouds.)
So, today is a day for us to cheer sun-filled days! Cheers to the Golden Poppy!…

This week, I’m thankful I can now say, “Good bye, Schmorl’s Node!” Although I know that each node is still actually there in my back, at least they’re no longer inflamed and making life uncomfortable. Who would’ve thought that adjusting from cup size C to cup size H when Glenn arrived could cause back pain?!
Thankful for my…Continue

This week I’m thankful for rhythm, patience (well, most of the time), and my three children.
Yes, we’re officially outnumbered. And yes, we’re loving it…most of the time.
I’m also thankful for my warm baby, snuggled up in bed with me. He’s found his smile now…though I’ve yet to capture it on film!…
