We pulled the plug on cable television just a few short months ago. Our bill had been inching its way to the $200+ range, and it was just too much. From a financial perspective, we probably could have made it work, but it was the principle of sending the check each month that eventually pushed […]
You’ve been here for a month, my sweet baby girl. How has it gone by so fast. I look at your perfect little face and I wonder, am I holding you enough? I had to do the dishes, to feed your brothers, to take a shower, and I wonder what I missed when I put […]
They are 5 and 4 years old. A sweet, thoughtful girl, and a rambunctious, hilarious boy. I know their laughter in the midst of a playground full of children, and I know their cry. I know their fears, and I know what brings joy to their faces. I know when they’re lying and when they truly […]

When you see your legs in shorts after a collage of family vacation photos, it hits you. There is no way around it. Sorry Cher, but you can’t turn back time. Face it. I am 46. A happy 46-year-old mother of two, mind you. And although I thoroughly enjoy being 46, there are side effects […]
“But wouldn’t you like a little girl?” During my second pregnancy, I was on the receiving end of this question a seemingly endless amount of times.
