Bad Mommy Days

A few weeks ago, my son didn’t do well on an assignment. He’s like me in that we both like to do things “right”. We aren’t rule breakers and we don’t like to fail or disappoint others. In this...

Happy 2021! The new year has to be better than 2020, right?  Absolutely!  As you’re reflecting on what you had hoped to accomplish in 2020, it’s ok if you didn’t accomplish all that you wished to with all of...
“I’m an air fryer, quick to heat up but quick to cool down. You are a slow, simmering crockpot. It takes you eight hours to cook, but when you get hot, it’s HOT.”  “That’s the perfect analogy. It takes me...
Chooo chooo y’all and all aboard the hot mess express! Move over Karen! Make room for the new chick on the block, Britney. (A tribute to the Queen of hot messes, Britney Spears). The “Britneys” of the world are...

Be still, my heart. Be still. Stillness is uncomfortable. 2020 has been an exercise in stillness and the realization that it can be easier to keep moving than it is to stop. Because stopping means processing. Stopping means being. Stopping means...
It’s the longest, darkest, coldest time of the year. As quarantine drags on, and winter madness sets in, it’s still time to play outside!  I realize this may seem like the last thing you (or your kids!) want to do....
