Sometimes, You Drive Me Nuts!

My dear, sweet, perfect, angel baby… sometimes… you drive me nuts. I mean, yeah… of course, I’ll always love you… but come on kid… cut me some slack! I think everyone who has ever loved a child knows what I’m talking about. You love this precious little being more than life itself… and you stare […]

Intentional Presence

Last week, Munchie and I went on a divine little nature walk with some friends and someone stumbled upon a nest of frog eggs. The group of kiddos were thrilled with the find and quickly scurried across the pond on a fallen log to check it out. I honestly didn’t know our kids were capable […]

The Best Babysitter Ever

Babysitters are one of the hottest and most safely guarded commodities in the parenting community. If you have a good one, you almost never talk about it – for fear someone will ask that you share your beloved sitter with them (possibly stealing them away on a night/day you may have needed care). But, aside […]

Raising an Adventurous One

You know those kids who sit quietly and listen to the librarian read books, with their hands gently folded in their laps? Yeah… that isn’t my kid.

For instance… I honestly don’t care what Munchie wears to school, so long as he’s adequately covered. The decision to dictate my child’s appearance? Like… be clean… but […]

Mommin’ Ain’t Easy

Can we all please just cut the Corn Flakes and quit pretending to be perfect? It’s EXHAUSTING! I see your adorable photos of the kids sitting in their clean playroom. How long did it stay that way? Do they get to play with those toys? And what about that picture you posted of their well-balanced […]

May Your Memories Be Dirty and Stained

Yesterday afternoon, we piled in the car and headed to Mayne’s Farm for some strawberry picking*. As we headed toward the farm it started to sprinkle and as we got closer the drops started falling faster. Now, when you promise a three-year-old strawberry addict that you are going to pick strawberries… backing out of that […]
