Here We Go Again

I was originally going to write a post entitled A Change is in the Air, about Elliott and how well she is doing with her RAD therapy. We have spent the last 18 months meeting with a therapist, changing the way we parent, turning… Continue

Mommy Dearest…

Today, I hang my head in shame. Attempting to keep the tears at bay & failing dismally, I contemplate ending it all & making that leap over the Brink Of Insanity. Surely I deserve such a fate, throwing myself in to the abyss, after a day that finally saw my children turn on me…nearly in unison, almost as one, declaring me the “worst Mommy ever!”. And what was it that brought…

I May Have Changed a Life Today

The lyrics of Elton John’s song, Someone Saved My Life Tonight, keep running through my mind in an endless loop. I keep thinking of a little year girl living somewhere in the U.S. with her adopted family, having traveled more than half way around the world from…

Random Acts of WOW!

Against my better judgement, I opted to take all three girls to the grocery store this morning as opposed to going at midnight last night. It was not a decision made by a wise, seasoned Mother, but one made by a tired, confused Mommy. By the time I got the girls to bed, gathered my list and my coupons, I would have literally gotten to the store 30 minutes before they closed.



So, this morning, armed with 4 hours of sleep, coffee gone cold from neglect, and three energetic, excited… Continue

TO TERMINATE. OR NOT. A FAITH-TEST.

In 2004, I went to my OB. They drew blood & confirmed I was pregnant. When my OB came to my room, we discussed the complications I had with my first pregnancy. A few bouts of pneumonia had caused fetal complications, causing DJ to be born at 29 weeks. After considering this, my OB looked at me & said, "You're high risk. Your pneumonia's haven't been diagnosed, treated, or cured. You can te… Continue

Unrealistic Reality TV

The obsession with my newly found identity crisis led me to believe that the labels put on SAHM’s strictly came from the 50’s and 60’s Susie Homemaker persona; however, the eruption of shows like The Real Housewives of… (pick a city, any city) has 21st century housewifery represented as gossiping cats with faux fur who claw at each other at social events. This new 21st century housewife has no responsibilities except to keep a high social standing and…

As the Fog Clears

Oh, how I had plans. From that first moment when the end of the stick turned pink, I just knew I was going to love being a mom. And I was going to be absolutely superb at it too. I would…

Dads Can Help with Child-Led Learning

Whenever we could, the main principle my husband and I tried to follow in our homeschool was child-led learning. Child-led learning is what I consider the most important principle…

WERE YOU BULLIED? OR WERE YOU THE BULLY?



If there's one thing that can cause inst-o-matic tears for me it's learning that someone is being bullied. It's an experience that is difficult to forget. I remember getting on the bus & my bully had told everyone to move to the edge of their seats, forcing me to have to stand up. Another time, my bully got all… Continue

Mom vs. Herself…

The biggest thing I’ve learned as a parent, is the biggest thing I struggle with the most as a parent. Because it demands that I engage in a constant inner struggle with the very fabric of my being. Here’s the lesson…BEFORE I give in to my immediate reactions, stop & ask myself: are MY opinions/actions/decisions what’s best for THEM?? It’s usually not…thus the struggle. Having to back down, bite my tongue, stay out of it, go with the flow, often requires a massive dose of happy pills…

Mom Genes

I was in the middle of a time-honored tradition, the 5:00pm banging of the pots and pans, when my oldest came in the kitchen and asked, “Are you cooking dinner?” I replied with a nod of my head which provoked a spontaneous reaction of his nose wrinkling and a follow-up question, “Do we have to eat the black parts?”

It is no secret that I can’t cook; furthermore, I hate to clean, I hate sitting at the park…

IT'S A GIRL, DUMBASS

My baby girl is not "handsome." She is not a "cute little guy" and she is certainly not "a smart looking fellow". She is wearing a purple hat with a daisy on it. Short of raiding Suri's walk-in closet for a pair of…
