Forgiving Ourselves As Parents

Feeling guilty when you are parent is something that seems to become second nature. ​​You just can't help yourself! Very often it's the little things that will rack you with guilt, sometimes (but rarely) it might be something big. This 'big'…

Worried about my generation

I spent a weekend at the beach with my girlfriends recently. And what I learned from them gave me hope: They reported that their children (mostly teens) were well behaved, not interested in dating or other risky behaviors and are quite academically inclined.…

A FEW THOUGHTS ON TWO

It’s hard to believe our twins are already two. I have been eagerly watching them grow and hit developmental milestones, yet the graduation from baby to toddler is paired with feelings of sadness and worry. My babies are grown and it’s happening fast. Just as it did with Thomas. Days…

Having a Second Child: the amazing multiplication of love

I stepped over several books, a Hot Wheels car, and a toy horse to get him there, but I gently laid my snuggly little sleeping boy into his bed and settled the blanket over him. He didn’t even notice, although he did roll over and cuddle down into his pillow a bit more in his…

With every milestone our children make, one door closes and another opens.  It all starts with the bottle and never seems to end.  Next comes the diapers, the crib, the pacifier and the toddler bed.  Time seems to move so quickly yet when we look back, it seems like ages ago that it all began.

We don’t often think of the stages and phases a mom…

Teens are very scary

Last week I told my son a "very scary" story about what would happen to him when he became a teenager. Although I was having some fun with him, I am well aware of the fact that what will actually happen when he becomes a teenager will be much, much more frightening. For me.…

Big Versus Small

She's at the bottom of the stairs screaming, again. She wants me to come back to carry her up the stairs. It's an ongoing battle. She will be 4 next month and while she is throwing her fit I think of how…

Baby Don't Let Go

I remember the week I brought my daughter home from the hospital. It was while I was sitting on the couch that I had my first real “moment” with her.

Now that I think back it was a fleeting moment, but I promised myself that I would never forget; times of immense happiness are somehow always neatly wrapped up and filed away in your memory.

She was sleeping, her head against my shoulder, breathing in complete rhythmic harmony; a sweet hum that filled my heart.

Her cheeks…

Starting an Avocado Tree

A few weeks ago I posted photos on my instagram page showing how beautifully my mother in law's fruits plants have grown. She has a papaya tree, avocado tree, banana tree, mango tree and more grown. There are a few others in their beginning stages. It only took about 5 years for some of her plants to start bearing fruit and I was thinking I should've started growing plants as soon as we bought our house. By now I would have…

"The talk"

 So I had THE question asked of me by my 6 year old daughter. You know the one, the one that turned me into a awkward and uncomfortable teenager. "Mommy, how does the baby get in a Mommy's belly?" She asks me while we are drawing at the art table. Her brothers were napping, so this Mommy and daughter bonding just took a whole big turn.







I panicked, what do I say? What is age appropriate? I want to give her the right…

Cutting the cord - one snip at a time

I'm watching the back of my son as he rides away from me. I can see him wobble a little on his bike, but the training wheels take up the slack. He starts to turn the corner and he suddenly looks very little to me. He picks up speed, as he heads down the block. He races by the fence, and is now out of my eyesight.…

Where did you go?

I feel like I blinked and my daughter turned into a toddler.  It made me think about the reasons why people have children.

Where did you go?

Why he'll always be my baby

"I'm not a baby. I'm a little boy," says my son. Often. And he is right. He is growing up so quickly (seriously...who knew time traveled this fast?). And he has every right to remind me that he is more boy than baby.

I may think of him as my "baby boy" often, but evidently, it's not entirely my fault.…

Trying to Keep My "Cool"

keep-calm-and-never-grow-up-102

I swear it wasn't that long ago that my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING with me.  But lately, I'm starting to realize that maybe I'm not quite as cool as I once thought I was.  (*What the hell?!!*)  Fifth grade is bringing on a whole new desire for independence, and friends are…

Until you become an adult, you never really understand that your parents really WERE looking out for your best interests when you were a kid.  As much as you thought they were unfair and totally out to ruin your life, they really did kinda know what they were doing (most of the time anyway).…

Milk the Moment

With life constantly throwing reminders at me that my kids are, in fact, growing up (cell phones, sleepovers, bike riding to school -- EEK!), I often get swept up in the everyday craziness of just trying to keep up with it all.  Half the time they don't want to talk to me, let alone listen to me, and,…

Eavesdropping: One of the Few Benefits of Driving Carpool

When I'm driving around a carpool of screaming ten-year-old girls, it's sometimes hard not to wanna drive the car straight into Lake Michigan.  Seriously, these girls are capable of some severe damage to one's hearing (not to mention one's sanity).  However, one of the benefits of driving them around is that I get to…

The Sleepover

I've been having a hard time lately with this whole growing up thing that my kids insist on doing.  It's like every time I turn around, they're gaining an inch on me, wanting to run around town with their friends, and begging for a cell phone.  Seriously, what is the rush already??!!  I, for one, am not entirely ready to…
