So the boys went back to school yesterday after a week off. I spent the day getting the house back in order. It always feels so good to do some good cleaning when the house is in a bit of disarray. However, my least favorite job with a house full of boys is bathrooms. I honestly do not know how they miss that giant hole so often. But I got the bathrooms done and washed all the hardwood, now all that is left to get back in order is the kitchen and basement. I will tackle that on Wednesday,…Continue

So this past summer I thought it would be a good idea to enroll my son in soccer. He loved playing in the yard and was really quite good at it so I thought it would boost his self esteem. I knew by this time that he had some anxiety, but thought since he loved playing soccer that it might be okay. Alright, so I know what you are all thinking…why would this be any different from swimming? Well, I guess I thought if we removed the whole water aspect it would be okay. It wasn’t. And now I had a…Continue

The other morning, as I was escorting my twins to kindergarten, a friend started chatting up the cop who was acting as the crossing guard.
“How do you know him so well?” I asked.
“He almost gave me a ticket the other day,” she said with a wink.
Clearly, she'd charmed the pants off the officer—something I’ve never quite learned to do.
My relationship with law enforcement has always been a bit more contentious than that and began, as it does for…Continue

Parents it is very important that you have a continuous relationship with their child as they are growing up so that when your child becomes a teenager, you will know them well enough to determine when they aren’t telling you the truth. Kids will tell you a story if they think that they can get away with it.…Continue

Every New Year, thousands of people (if not more) make the resolution to get fit. They sign up for gym memberships, buy workout DVD’s, and order the latest and greatest gadget from a slick infomercial on TV. And usually about this time of year, several weeks in, a large majority of these same people let the…Continue

I get it, all moms seem to have this desire to share with everyone how great their child is. What I have a problem with are the mothers that find it necessary to tell me that their child is in some way better than mine. If you’ve not yet experienced this, you’re lucky.
Flashback to my son’s first swimming lesson. This is at a point in my son’s life where we have yet to discover that he has a high amount of anxiety about…well, almost everything. He’s probably around three years old.…Continue

When I started this blog I made a deal with myself to keep it authentic and relevant. My goal was to write about subject matters that inspired or moved me, and had relevance in the world as we know it today.
But I also pledged not to…Continue
