How many times have you been to a park, playground, etc., and there were other people there too, but you just kept to yourself and didn’t converse much with the others? You sit and watch your kids play with theirs, you casually nod a hello to the parent, but that’s about it… This happens to… Continue reading The Stranger at the Park
Life was getting the best of me today, so I grab the kids and head to the gym. The fancy YMCA that has the best childcare & kid fit classes on Wednesdays. 🙂 Toss them all into their classes and head to the recumbent bike section, since I just don’t feel like walking/running/elliptical-ing today. No… Continue reading Thoughts from my recumbent bike at the gym
Ha. You who know me know I don’t have a teenage daughter. I have two daughters who are nowhere near their teenage years. They’re only 6.5 and 3.5 years old.

There… Continue reading A Boat of Alfredo

Though I tend to have story after story after story to tell my mom every day on the phone, so… Continue reading Olivia drove me here. 🙂
Three years ago I made the decision to quit my full-time job so that I could stay at home with Macy. I worked for a few weeks/months while she was still tiny and officially started my ‘job’ as a stay-at-home mom in December of 2009, so not quite 3 years ago, but close enough. Being… Continue reading He delights in me as a stay-at-home mom.
