moms

I don’t normally share the specific details of my every day life, but over the past two weeks, I have been near bed-ridden. Coming down with what I thought was a 48-hour virus, but turned out to be pneumonia, has had me lying in bed for the better part of each day, trying to rest and allow my body to recoup. As …

school pictures

It’s that time of year again (at least, here in the U.S.). Time for parents to complain about having to shell out their hard-earned money for some head shots of their little cherubs, but eventually do it anyway. That’s right! It’s time for school pictures!

please come back

Dear School Year, Please come back! I know what I said before, but I swear I didn’t mean any of it! I wasn’t in my right mind! I was in a stupor from chaperoning too many field trips, and I didn’t know what I was saying. Please, please come back! I don’t know if I can take any more of the arguing, the …

school supplies

It’s that time of year again – School Supply Shopping Time! It’s also the time of year we start to see a lot of posts on social media from teachers, advocating for parents to buy things on their lists of school supplies, and from parents, complaining about having to buy things from the lists of school supplies. It makes me …

It has come to my attention that many of you have fallen under the impression that I am here to be your personal cruise director, while in reality, I am your mother.   As your mother, my primary purpose is to keep you alive, feed you, clothe you, …

school year

Dear School Year, Listen, we need to talk. I think it’s time for us to take a break. It’s not you! It’s me. I love you, and you know that. I love how you take my kids for seven hours a day, five days a week. You answer their infinite number of questions so I can get a little break. …

inner struggle

When you become a Mother, your life becomes one continuous inner struggle. The day I brought my first child home from the hospital, I found my mind constantly being pulled in two directions, which I suppose I should have seen coming. I knew for nine months that I would be caring for another human life in addition to my own; it’s …
