We were running early this morning…miracle of miracles!  I told my kids to go play for a few minutes while I finished getting ready, but my daughter followed on my heels saying with her four-year-old confidence, “I can help!”.  With only makeup left to put on, I laid out my eyeshadows and…(Read More)

So, yesterday was a pretty terrible day for me.  Nothing external that happened was bad necessarily.  It was mostly just me…emotions running high and hormones running everywhere.  I was absolutely NOT at my best and I knew it.  (Anyone relating here??) But this morning, something miraculous happened!  I got a fresh start!  I woke…(Read More)

I Need a Do-Over

Perhaps you can relate to this: waking up to the sound of monkey noises coming from the child who is both climbing on you and attempting to pull you out of bed simultaneously.  The house is a wreck from the day before spent NOT doing any chores, the kitchen has no clean dishes, the children…(Read More)
