Confessions of A Mom Of All Boys

momofallboys

I am the oldest girl in a family that started with three girls. I was the girly girl big sister. My life was surrounded by little girls, even as a teen I would help care for a family of little girls for weekends or weeks at a time. If you're starting to get the picture, girls are what I knew.... They were what I had always been comfortable with. Whether it was helping them pick out fun outfits or doing their hair and nails, I loved (still love) all things girly. When I was in college my ...

Preconceived – The Importance of Individualized Parenting

IMG_5156-0.JPG

We go into parenting with a lot of preconceived ideas. But although having our first child shatters many of those, it also adds a whole new set of preconceptions to the list. Thing is, these new ones are no better than the original ones. In fact, in many ways they're worse. If allowed to take root or if gone unchecked, children end up living in shadows, not developing true individuality and often become rebellious and develop bad habits because of our altered expectations. Allowing myself ... [ Read More ]

Not One Moment for Granted

As my husband sits on one of the most difficult phone calls of his life, searching for the right words, any words to say to a newly grieving father, a relative who has always been like a brother, who lost his young adult son today in a horrible accident, I find myself feeling helpless, emotional and sentimental. We all logically know that death is simply a part of life. Logically.... The reality though is that death pulls at the very fabric of a family. It leaves a gaping hole and often is ... [ Read More ]

The Bad Mommy Complex – It’s Time to Let it Go

badmommyfeature

I have lived for so long under the cloud of fear and doubt as a mom that I almost don't know what it's like to be on the other side. A fact that I am terribly afraid all too many moms would also have to admit for themselves if they were asked to be honest. Everywhere we turn there's someone doing it "better" than we are, there's one more report proving that everything we have done as a mother (ok, maybe not everything, but it sure does FEEL like it!) has been wrong and we are once again ...

Have you ever found that smart phones and motherhood can be a tricky combination? Motherhood is messy and damp and unpredictable at best, phones don't like any of those things. Some moms can manage just fine, but some want to be able to take pictures in the rain, not worry about the fact that their precious 2 year old spilled their drink by the phone and what happens if the baby spits up on it. Believe it or not, I have a solution for you! I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of ... [ Read More ]
