While talking to one of my mom friends tonight and we each have two kids; our youngest kids are only a month apart (10 and 11 months), we needed another mother to commiserate with about how stressful parenting more than one child at a time can be. The jealousy, split attention all that comes along… Continue reading Split Attention

Before I had my children I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. Now three years later I realize what I want to do; I want to help other mothers.

Don’t get me wrong I love hanging out and playing certain things with them but when it comes to things that involve imagination that’s where things get sketchy. For instance, Barbie’s; they come with so many “rules” and apparently… Continue reading Playing with Attitude

Writing and Life

I love words. They can create something beautiful, a whole other world even. The best writer makes you feel like you are part of the story, a book, a poem, even a blog can make it seem like real life. Creating art has always been a big part of my life. Painting, drawing, writing, music… Continue reading Writing and Life

Selfish

What is it to be selfish? When I think of selfish I think of doing something for yourself, something only for you. Most of the time being selfish has negative connotations, why can't it be something associated with something positive? How often as a parent do we get to do something selfish? I have a feeling… Continue reading Selfish
