Try as we might, we can’t protect them forever. There will come a day when as a parent we won’t be there for our children physically anymore, and that’s terrifying. I know this is dark and depressing stuff and the reason why I bring it up is that in my house my 5 year old… Continue reading Be Alright

Empty Cups & Overflowing Saucers
When people first become parents they are so thrilled and picture it as this lovely dream. The baby breastfeeds perfectly from the start, they sleep through the night at a week old, they listen when you tell them something the first time (I almost couldn’t get that last one out without laughing, I’m sorry). Sounds… Continue reading Empty Cups & Overflowing Saucers
Man oh man does moving on take freaking effort to start! However once you build up steam it’s easy to keep going. Like when a train starts moving from the station; at first it’s a little jerky and slow, and the train station isn’t the best sight to see. But then the movements smooth out,… Continue reading Leap

Photos of me in high school and college with my friends, times from fixing up my house, and watching my children grow… Continue reading Timeline of Life
My arms are strong And yet they are weak They comfort, protect and hold you Never have they been so full My arms are strong Some days feel like they carry the weight of the world But the moment you snuggle close I could hold you forever without tiring My arms are strong… Continue reading My Arms
Where has the time gone?
It has been forever since I have had the energy to sit down to write anything for the blog. It’s not that I don’t want to, because I do, I have just been pushing myself to finish my classes, get ready for my internship, and try my best at succeeding with this new company I… Continue reading Where has the time gone?
I need you
As a society I believe we make children grow up too quickly; for instance, babies and young children sleeping through the night. What a completely laughable idea; however, there are some unicorn babies out there that from the start are great sleepers but most aren’t like that. Developmentally they will get there in their own… Continue reading I need you
