Mothers can have bad days – kids misbehave, work gets on top of you, the house is a dump, your husband is being useless, etc. Mothers often tell me that when they are having a bad day, they think of me and they instantly feel better. The chaos in my life provides them with some comfort in those manic mama moments.
But I have to let you in on a little secret: it’s not that bad. In fact, it’s pretty darn good. Sure, I don’t get a lot of sleep and nights out on the town are few and far…Continue

I posted a blog recently about the value of saying “No” to kids. The gist was:
1) Your kids will be fine if they don’t get what they want all the time.
2) If you’re going to say “No” then be sure to follow through – unless you like to lead the double life of parent and white noise machine.
I just discovered another good time to say “No”– when it comes to buying them nice things. Ya know why? Because they don’t…Continue

Hubby DOES NOT understand anything that I do on the internet – EVER. I am completely addicted to my Blackberry and way ADD with it. I get antsy when I’m not doing this with my hands – weird, right? I’ll be sitting on the couch watching t.v. talking with my hubby after the kids are in bed and I’ll get antsy. Either I’m crafting, drawing, or on my Blackberry. And it drives him crazy… why? I really don’t know other than he wants me to pay attention and be 100% focused on…Continue

This morning, after the dulcit tones of
"Mummmmmmyyyyy I wake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Swiftly followed by footsteps more befitting of a baby elephant than a 2 year old, my toddler arrived at my bedside.
We did our normal ritual. Wee wee, Peppa slippers, screams because I try and get away without carrying her down the stairs (oh my poor back).
Finally we arrive in the kitchen for milk. Things went wrong when she fell head first off the work surface and…

About a month ago I attended a wonderful gathering with a handful of women who were interested in gaining a biblical perspective on our role in our homes. We were introduced to an amazing book by Devi Titus,…Continue

Lately, though, my toddler’s morning routine has become character-driven, with an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba while I prepare breakfast, and an hour of Sesame Street afterward while I play with our
infant and get him squared away for his first nap.…
