I don’t have babies anymore

My Big Kids

I lay quietly next to you, watching your chest rise and fall as you slept. Every few minutes, you’d sigh and a little whistle would escape your nose. Weren’t you just a baby? Weren’t you just toddling down the hallway waiting for someone to praise you? Weren’t we just getting rid of the pacifier and… [Read More]

What I’ve learned from working at home

I’ve been at home with my kids for 3.5 years. Of that time there has only been one month were I didn’t have any work and that was January 2012. I’ve been quite fortunate.

Some days “good” is all I’ve got

We are always pushing for more – to do more, be more. Satisfactory isn’t allowed. We must excel at all times. We aren’t allowed to even… [Read More]

Reality bites and other words of wisdom

Dudes. Seriously? I just got back from an AH-mazing weekend. We’re talking wine, good food, coffee, cuddlling, cold weather and a little adventure. It was BEYOND needed. We got home late Sunday afternoon. The kiddos rushed into our arms and we had a big ol’ family snuggle fest. Again, totally amazing. Then Monday happened. What the… [Read More]
