The Threenager

Kids make life an adventure that’s for sure, in my house we are going through the three’s and holy crap are they a doozy. Several of my mom friends I’ve talked to who have children around the same age say their kids are going through all the same stuff, back-talking, whining, not listening, basically acting… Continue reading The Threenager

Softball

Last week I played in my first softball game in 14 years! I was nervous as all get out but I met a lot of really nice people and had a blast. My longtime friend Megan asked me over the past several years to play on a team with her but I was either incredibly… Continue reading Softball

The Struggle

I feel like I’m in a funk that I just can’t seem to get out of and stay out of. For a time all is well and good but then I feel myself slip back into that space. It’s like quicksand it slowly pulls you in further and further till suddenly you realize its chest… Continue reading The Struggle

Split Attention

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.
