Most women as they set their goals in life one of their top priorities is becoming a Mother. They create a life and begin to set molds on how they should be and the things they will need. One of those things is the “perfect” husband. If these women come from homes with a steady male figure they begin to fantasize about one just like him. A provider, the head of the household, one who takes care of everything.
But is that really the truth? As young children watch their parents and…Continue

I've been very open on this blog and in many other areas of my life about my struggles with drinking. My kids were center stage for some of the dumber things I did during that time, and I regret that so much. They finally stopped the barstool jokes, but it took a couple of years.
I took Julian to his 12-year checkup last week- his pediatrician talked to him about drugs and alcohol, if he had been asked to use…Continue

Children are a gift and a blessing, I have dreamed of being a mom for as long as I can remember. When I think of children the word legacy comes to mind. In my opinion, the most important legacy we can leave to our children is a legacy of faith. Giving our children a legacy of faith outweighs leaving them houses or things although it's great to do both. I read a quote…Continue

Most kids are not quiet. They tend to be loud, run around and get into things. Some kids are a bit more adventurous than others. They are easier to anger, yell or interrupt us. Maybe all of the above and more. This can go on for years past the “terrible twos”, which is supposed to end by age four at the latest.
THE TRIP INTO THE…Continue

Here's a question. When was the last time you were unapologetically yourself? When was the last time you felt something in your gut and just went for it? You didn't hesitate, you didn't consider another person's opinion, you didn't waiver on whether or not it was…Continue

Teenagers, and all the interesting things that come along with them, sneak up on us before we even think we are ready. I barely blinked before Cameron turned 13. His voice is getting deep, he's taller than me, and what is food? It disappears before I see it. This kid is still writing the parenting manual at my house because, clearly, this book will never be done.

I recently came upon a meme of a sad girl with the words across the chest of the tee-shirt she wore which said: She’s standing on the line between giving up and seeing how much more she can take. Powerful right? It’s loaded with the need for us as parents to make sure that this “line” is not a thin line.
It doesn’t matter if you have a 4-year old who’s being potty trained a 10-year old who’s trying to make the basketball team, a teenager who’s going…Continue

There’s so much new parenting advice and faddish trends out there that it can be hard to really know what’s best for your own kids. One source of knowledge, however, that has billions of adherents is that which has been passed down from generation to generation and become the foundation of parenting in different cultures.

I am trying to get better at not doing things for my son.
For example: He likes to cook, so twice a month, he has to cook dinner for the family. While either my wonderful husband or I will act as his sous chef, we make sure he does the bulk of the work. This gets hard if he claims he has had a "long day"…
