April Parenting Tip: How to Handle Unpredictability

There are many words that can be used to describe motherhood but today, my pick is “unpredictable“.  What you think is a day planned one way can turn into a whole other day in the snap of a finger.  As a mom, you need to be able to quickly adjust and roll with the punches.  This of course is no easy feat but it can be done.…

No, I am Not Trying for a Girl so STOP ASKING!

If I had a dollar for every person that questioned me about the sex of my children and had an opinion on my non-existent future child, I would be sitting on my private beach with a delicious cold cocktail in my hand waiting for my personal chef to deliver my lunch.

My boys just lost their first soccer game EVER.  When they realized the game was over and the score was 1-0, not in their favor, the looks on their faces were one of confusion. “Wait, what..we lost?

Are YOU Done Having Babies?

As I organize my older son’s closet, I am finding the most precious of memories in the form of pictures, school projects and love notes.  Last night, we all sat on the floor and looked through it all, which made me teary eyed.  Even my kids said they felt emotional.  My oldest commented, “those were good times mom…good times”.…
