Elijah and the Ninja Skills

Around Lape Haven, we kind of love silly. We thrive on imagination and creativity. We choose birthday party themes based on how costume-friendly they are. (We really do.)

But I have to say, sometimes, I am still amazed at how quirky my kids can be. They provide me with hours of…

Write 31 Days - Day 4: Elijah and the Belly

This past year has brought a number of new babies to our family and close friends, so every few months, our boys were hearing about another baby being born. Either they were seeing those adorable newborn pictures in my Facebook feed, watching Mommy edit newborn pictures from the two sessions…

I wouldn't trust a "Bambi" to do my taxes

We all make associations with people based off their names. For example, I don't think "handyman" when I am introduced to guys with names like Trevor or Preston. And I don't think "financial genius" when I meet a woman named Bambi or Sequoia. Am I instantaneously judging people based off their name without actually getting to know them first?…

6 Tips For Mothers Of Teenage Girls

Years ago when my daughter was 10, I realized that my relationship with my daughter was much smoother and easier than that of the average or typical relationship. Yes! I said easier. I have always been told, wait for it, things will change as soon as she’s a teenager.

Fast forward to age 14, the biggest challenge for myself was that she thought she was “ugly” because she has always been very tall for her age. Those feelings quickly changed after she became more involved in sports.…

Aspergers Homeschooling Anxiety

Homeschooling Anxiety can be a pretty stressful self-imposed annoyance. But we all get it at sometime or another.  It could be just making a decision whether or not you should homeschool, the abundance of different curriculums,  or trying to find out what works best for your children. The list can seem never ending.

While I love what I am doing, and I know it is the right thing for my boys. I still am riddled with doubt.  I find myself straddling between two separate worlds in a lot…

What's a Mom's Job?

One son living off formula and on a feeding tube and another son with hearing aids - this could’ve been me.  But it’s not.  Instead, I have a son who’s healthy and thriving and another who hears fine.  Where we lucky?  Did God simply smile done at us?  Yes.  But I also know that my children are lucky to have a mom.


Let me share with you what I heard when I walked into a doctor’s office.


“But Doctor, isn’t there anything I can do to help Ethan overcome his…

Do you trust your instincts?

What does it take for us to trust our own instincts?  Does having the confidence to pose a question mean that we have the guts to advocate for what we believe is right?  Asking questions is probably the first step in trusting ourselves.  It shows we value what we think. 

But what does it take to trust ourselves?  Experience.  There's two ways to get that- the hard way- actually go through it or the easy way- learn from someone else.  I think that's why stories can inspire us.  To the…

I tried rock-climbing! A great experience, but, man, it's hard. It requires education, strategy, concentration, endurance, strength, patience & in my case, humility (wearing a harness between your legs isn't… Continue

Snooping On A Man's Wallet

Should a woman snoop through her man's wallet? The temptation may be great, but what about the implications. I would definitely not do it.It's the same as invading someone's privacy. I wouldn't want the same thing to be done to me, perhaps a man to snoop on my purse, pager, cellphone or even emails. Would it bother you if your partner snoop through your personal things?… Continue

Raising Kids...Relate vs. Dictate

If you want to alienate your kids, create an atmosphere that says “I am the boss and you will obey!” On the other hand, if you want a relationship with your kids, create an atmosphere that says “I am here to help you!”

Communicating with your child is what will determine the type of relationship you will share. On going communication is what will allow the relationship to deepen and strengthen.

Parents are often so busy they forget the need to consciously cultivate a… Continue
