Ways I Make My Life Easier as a Disorganized Mom.


Sleeping Beauty woke up singing to birds and full of promises for her future. This is what I pictured as my mom life. Full of ambition and promise for my little ones- my whole worlds, my hearts! I would wake up singing to my baby and fall in bed, exhausted but looking forward to doing it again. Blue dresses would twirl around my calves as I mopped and tended to the baby’s laundry and rocked her back to sleep. It would be a tiring but magical and fulfilling time.

Instead, having a baby was disorienting and exhausting, without the singing of birds or pretty dress swirling around me as I efficiently checked off my to-do list. My daughter and son were, are, and will forever be my whole worlds, my heart, but it isn’t always that straight-forward, is it?

What Love Is To Me


I didn’t know what love was until I met Josh. That is corny but totally true. I knew lust, obsession, infatuation, adoration and worship. But real love came with Josh. “Real love” is different for every person in their life and situation, so I can only tell you how it relates to me, personally. So here is how I think…

My Kids And Music


My kids came out as independent old souls with their own opinions about everything- including music. I feel that I am less their teacher and more their guide through this life. I have asked other kids why they like the music they listen to. They say things like, “Oh I love listening to it because my dad does and we…

Entering the Tween Years or How Can I Stop Time?


My daughter has become a tornado of ideas and emotions, seemingly overnight. Her favourite sentence is, “I know that already!”. We have officially entered the “tween” years. And here I thought I had more time. I believe she is raging with hormones already and it won’t be long until we have a full-fledged tween/teen monster on our hands. She is…
