To say that life has changed in the last two weeks would be an understatement. A more close-to-reality statement would be that all of life hit a major pause button. It’s like when you watch a scene on TV with a speed setting that is fast-forwarding it all and then you suddenly have the scene…Read more Notes from a Crisis
The Forgotten Kiddos
To be honest with you, I don’t really know how to go about writing this post. In fact, it is more likely to be my first of several but I find it vital to at least start the conversation. What’s the issue? Well, I have only more recently found myself drawn to the reality of…Read more The Forgotten Kiddos
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!
I was struck recently by what I’m about to share here. I was hearing it said as pertains to dealing with kids, but, something about it made total sense in terms of dealing with human beings in general. What I heard was this: When a child’s love tank is full, you’ll find that it…Read more Tanking up
The art of mothering – pt. 3
I have a little explorer on my hands, folks. My very own Dora. And you know what? I’m so proud of her, even though it often means sleeplessness and a bit of stress on my part. Like when she put her hand in the toilet bowl to touch the water. I caught her just before…Read more The art of mothering – pt. 3
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.
Were any of you like me? You always thought that your mother was a bit crazy, over dramatic, and couldn’t possibly be right all those times (no reference to this movie, by the way). I wasn’t an out there rebellious child, but I definitely had my moments as a teenager, I tell you. That said,…Read more Mummy dearest
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
