All About the Feels

Happy new year, friends and family! I’ve been pondering for quite a while now what you’re about to read. Frankly, it’s about time I penned it down. It all began to come together for me as I visited with a friend of mine last month. A fellow mother, she shared with me how God had…Read more All About the Feels

Bones, bones, rise up!

Let’s talk today about laziness. Why? Why??? Because it’s a condition that eludes me much these days. Lol. So, as I’m the one blogging (read: talking) here, so you just have to help me by reading (read: listening). I’ll rant a bit. A long, long time ago (dramatic, right?), there were days when I could…Read more Bones, bones, rise up!

Not good enough, eh?

To say I’ve been stretched lately is an understatement. For some reason, I’d imagined that as my kids got older, I’d have more time to myself. I’m now learning that my expectations of “older” need to be adjusted. Yes, that is a truth that will at some point happen. As I’ve heard, there will come…Read more Not good enough, eh?

Out of control toddler??

Today, we need to talk about a special person. This person knows no boundaries. Or, sees them, but then does without them. Allow me to explain.   Life with my toddler is about living beyond a box. Whatever box you picture in your head. How do I know this? I invite you to do an…Read more Out of control toddler??

Community value

I’m writing this as someone who always knew in her head that community is helpful, useful, handy. See the words I’ve used there in describing it? Exactly. For most of my life, that’s been my stance. “Yeeea, it’s pretty good. Can come in handy, yep.” So to sum it up, when it came to me,…Read more Community value

Parent away!

Boy am I learning a lot in this journey of being a parent. One major thing, which I’ll dwell on today, is the issue of laziness.   Now, I realize I haven’t gone far in the parenting deal. There are people who are parents of 6-year-olds, 12-year olds, 30-year-olds. So I’m clearly just beginning. I’d…Read more Parent away!

This thing called Life.

Today I’ve decided to write on life. The everyday, the normal, the tedious. I happened to be thinking of this the other day when I was feeling super worn out from taking care of my kids, a day I found myself wondering when night would come. Or more, if there’d happen to be a sliver…Read more This thing called Life.

Don’t you wish your plant was as rooted as mine? Dontcha?

A true innocent bystander, plantie has been with our family for about two years now. Maybe a little more than that. By no means do I have a green thumb (evidenced by the fact that I don’t know the name of the specie to share with you here and now), but I have certainly done…Read more Don’t you wish your plant was as rooted as mine? Dontcha?

Raising a toddler, pt. 2

Where do I begin? Ok, I’ll start by complaining, then end on a more positive note. First, it cannot possibly be this hard, can it? I mean, surely not. Surely there must be a way to calm a toddler down, much like we swaddle newborns to calm them. I mean, do you mean to tell…Read more Raising a toddler, pt. 2

Raising a toddler, pt. 1

So I’m very new in this journey, y’all. But I tell you, dealing with the changes that take place in the moods of a 13-month-old can be challenging. And that’s probably the nicest way that can be put.   I have always had a pretty easygoing kiddo who smiles all the time, is very playful…Read more Raising a toddler, pt. 1
