I Think

I think dresses are fun. I also think short dresses should come in special big booty sizes (an extra 3 inches of fabric in the back to account for the rear-lift issue). You know I'm right. I think the news is too scary and overly altered selfies are too scary and being an adult is… Continue reading I Think

When I Close My Eyes

When I close my eyes, I see us dancing. You, small and chunky and nuzzled safely in my arms. Swaying, just the two of us, all afternoon to the sound of my singing. Then I open them to find you showing me some new dance moves you learned from your friends. I see you, now… Continue reading When I Close My Eyes

Be the Tree

It's been really hot, for a really long time. I'm talking seatbelt burning, soaked skin, flame wind, melting hot. I keep searching for cooler temps to come, but they're not in the forecast.  When it's like this, I find the shade of a tree very comforting. I seek it. I feel like I can breathe… Continue reading Be the Tree

This time of growing so fast I can't hold on hard enough. This time… Continue reading Let’s Figure This Out Together

The Invisible Mom

Sometimes I walk into a room full of people, yet feel completely alone. It's like I'm completely invisible. Do you ever feel this way? I think we've all been there. Right? I also think nobody actually wants to admit or talk about it. Since my share filter is broken, I'm going there. I don't feel… Continue reading The Invisible Mom

Summer Sorting and Spinach Smoothies

It's day 40 something of summer vacation. I'm no longer hiding in the closet calling for reinforcements like day 4. I've got my game face on now and we're just knocking out this summer thing like champs. I ran this morning. I went further and faster than a few days ago. I'm good with that.… Continue reading Summer Sorting and Spinach Smoothies
