The Curly Hair Conundrum Part 2.


Remember when I announced I was getting a haircut a month or so back…well… I have found a hairstyle I love! I can have my cake and eat it too, so to speak. I wanted something as easy to manage as a pixie cut, but still be able to rock a tiny ponytail. I saw a few photos more than…

We Got The Flu! Did You?


Hey! We have been sick. Tis the season, I guess. (You get the flu! And you get the flu! And you get the flu! -haha) My kids threw up for 3 days straight, a break of a couple days, then again threw up for a couple of days. Despite early bedtimes, drinking lots of water, and eating a lot of…

My husband calls me a “slave driver to myself”. When I did the Discovery Dyet this year (more on that later- in a word, fantastic) I found that I…

Carving Out Personal Space


My kids love people. They are fiercely loyal to their friends and will do anything for them. Family is a huge priority for both of them. My kids spend a lot of their time planning time with family and friends or writing them letters and drawing them pictures. That said, they are both sort of introverts. I find that once…

How Grief Made Me a Better Parent


My son’s six-year-old playmate died suddenly not long ago and we are still going through the waves of grief. I still wake up at night to check on my own kids. I believe that Hunter is just now realizing it is a forever thing….I am sure that this will affect him forever. Sometimes I find him just gazing at her…

A New Book Discovery and A New Parenting Strategy.


As I sit and write this, I can hear my cat out on the open balcony, playing with leaves. He is pouncing and chasing. I can hear the patter of his feet and the rustling of the leaves as he attacks and bats at them. The fall light streams in through the window in a golden glow and the air…
