When we are little girls, some of us dream of becoming moms, holding and loving our baby dolls while practicing to care for the real thing one day. Others sit in front of the mirror holding the hairbrush microphone, imagining themselves as pop stars, while there are those that sit for hours and draw up beautiful sketches of clothing hoping to one day become a designer.
Whatever the dream, from the time we have pigtails and bows in our hair, we are attracted to certain careers. I…Continue

It’s really easy to blame your child when their behavior is less than stellar. Right now in my house, my seven year old and five year old seem to feel they are entitled to everything and anything. I have given them the “you need to be grateful for everything you have” speech, along with the “you need to earn these things, not just expect them” speech, and the ever popular, “money doesn’t grow on trees” talk. I constantly feel like a broken record and after pondering why my words of wisdom…Continue

We focus so heavily on our children’s birthdays and how fast they are growing up and getting older. Newsflash…that means we are getting older too! As my husband is about to turn 40 and I am only a few short years away, I have been focusing more and more on what it really means to be getting older. In our twenties, my husband and I always talked about what 40 would look like. When you are 21, 40 might as well be 70. Not sure how it…

As mothers we are always wondering if we are present enough in our children’s lives. Lately, I have actually pondered if it’s possible to be too present???
As a stay-at-home mother (who works from home), I take my “job” very seriously and put 110% into parenting my children (and my husband). I make sure I am involved in their school and know their teachers well, drop them off and pick them up every day, know who their friends are, invest the time to tailor…Continue
