Lazy Parent or Teaching Independence?

Originally posted on Just Playing House.

I'm a lazy parent! At least where it counts. This realization was inspired by a friend's similar confession. That may seem like a really strange thing to say, but it's true. I try not to do for my children as much as possible. That means…

I woke up Sunday as if it were any other day, in a whirr of excitement to get ready for church. For some reason I’m just not a morning person, so I wake up with just enough time to shower, get little E ready after he eats and head out the door.

While waiting for church to start, I was talking with Trevor and his sister. She started talking about how her smart phone is so distracting. She’s constantly looking at it and was even thinking of switching to a flip phone.

Momma’s bedtime is a word that use to make me cringe. Even thinking about it being late at night just turns my mood sour. So many issues arise with it, kids not wanting to sleep, waking up too…

Communication After Death - My Signs From Cameron

This blog was originally posted at Just Playing House.

It is every parent's worst nightmare to lose a child. I remember being angry at myself for even letting the thought cross my mind. It was unimaginable. Luckily this didn't happen to people like us so I had nothing to worry about...until I did. By the time I let myself believe it was a possible outcome that night, it already was the outcome. He was too far gone. No longer did I…

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'…

Confessions of a Preacher's Kid: #1 Being Raised in Church ISN'T Enough

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…

Mommy - More than just a Name

Being a mom means lots of different things. As a mom you are responsible for other beings. You have someone else to take care of, provide for, teach about life, and protect. We are the ones who give hugs and cuddles, wipe away tears and give words of encouragement. We are housekeepers and…

Parenting Standards… Lowered. | Anna Lane on MomCave LIVE

Dear Parents I Used to Nanny For,

Twenty years, twenty pounds, and a marriage and two kids ago, I was your nanny. And I judged you. My parenting standards were based on unrealistic expectations. I knew nothing of the shit storm that is parenting. While I made bewildered mental notes about the state of your home, the behavior of your children, and your fashion choices, you were keeping actual human beings alive. I apologize.

I have seen the light. And so has Anna Lane, who…

Things to Pack in your Maternity Bag

What to Pack in your Hospital Bag?

One of the most exciting moments of pregnancy is the preparation of the bag to accompany you to the hospital. It is also a somewhat solemn moment as the mom in the making is moved to the small pajamas and soft blanket to be used to wrap his little angel ... So as is often taken by emotion, you better have a predetermined list everything what to bring!

As we approach the end of pregnancy, any… Continue

Why I Hope My Daughter Experiences Playing on a TEAM

I spent my entire childhood surrounded by impressive young women. I spent long bus rides with them. Laughed with them, ran with them, and cried with them. This week the gym I grew up playing in got torn down. Well, the whole school is getting torn down, but I could really care less about that. I mean, I'm happy the kids of that town are getting a new school. It was falling apart when I was there 10 years ago, definitely necessary. Yet, something about that filthy old gym getting torn down…

Making a Dream Board is one of those deeply personal craft projects that I’ve always had a difficult time with. I never really stopped and thought about why they were so important until one of my new life gurus (Is that a thing? If not, I’m making it one.) said that I needed to do it. So, because she’s…

8 ways to set the boundaries with your child

My Love-Hate Relationship with Breastfeeding (on demand)

O.K., I admit it, sometimes I HATE breastfeeding. There, I said it. At three a.m. when I am awakened for the third time by my sweet eleven month old nuzzling up against my shirt and crying, I have to say that I have bottle-feeding baby envy. I want nothing more than to hand my baby over to my soundly…

Let Them Be Little

Kids grow up fast, real fast. One moment they are sitting in the back of the car singing the ABCs, then next moment they are singing ‘hot line bling’. If you think about it, childhood is just small portion of life, not even 10%…I’m not sure who decided that childhood should be so short, but whoever made the decision, they totally got things backwards.

As parents, we want to raise our children to be functioning members of society. We want them to be good people, to know right from…

Choosing the Good Part

Here in Ohio, our winter has been incredibly mild this year, and we were all really happy with that, minus not having a white Christmas. However, the last few weeks have brought the cold, snowy weather that we are more familiar with for this time of year.

Only this year, we’ve got a…

Fun and safe online places for kids

Kids are starting to use laptops, tablets, and smartphones on a daily basis. Even before they know how to read or write, kids know how to play the video games. However, not all of the online games are safe and a good place for them to develop. If your child is spending time playing some of these ten games, you have nothing to worry about.…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
