20 Mother’s Day Crafts for Kids

When I was younger, I can remember asking my Mom, “Why do Moms get a special day? Why isn’t there a kids day?” Her reply? “You get the other 364 days, I get this one!” I am convinced being a parent is the hardest job out there, and Moms, I give you a round of…

I forgot to feed my son breakfast

I will be the first to admit that our mornings are a little hectic around here. Somehow, back in the days of me working full-time, I managed to get myself up and dressed, get two toddlers up and dressed – and we would all be buckled into the car and heading for daycare and work…

Have Hope – I’ve Seen Our Futures

Even Steven and I are a lot like most parents. We’re full of joy and love for our kids. We laugh at things they say and take pride in small milestones (like when Alice finally learned to wipe herself and get the toilet paper into the toilet afterwards.) We take our jobs as parents seriously…

10 Things I Learned on the Coldest Day of My Life

Yesterday was the coldest day of my life. Okay – it probably wasn’t really. I was born in the 80’s, and I grew up in Michigan – so I’m guessing that if I had been 8 years old with temps below zero – we wouldn’t have talked about it. My mom would have just sent…
