Sweet Dreams

First of all, I'm not promoting or discouraging co-sleeping/ bed-sharing. I respect whatever decision any family makes about it! Before I had kids, I never really thought about them sleeping in my bed. Then when they came along, I added it to my list of things to research and decided it was something I was… Continue reading Sweet Dreams

Rough Ride

We made it to Fall break. Celebrate! The weeks flew by so fast, it scares me to think how quickly the next few years will go. I refuse to think about that right now. I sat through the grueling pick up line, just moments away from the start of our fun week. I had everything… Continue reading Rough Ride

It's like a little, terrible secret you pack around with you. You try to stuff it down into the… Continue reading Invisible Axe

Can dirty socks bring joy? Being married to someone really takes love and dedication. It's taking two lives that made it many years on Earth apart and sticking them in a confined space together to figure it out. It's finding out the other folds towels different (and wrong). It's learning each other's routine and strange… Continue reading Beyond the Fabric

This One Time in the Car Rider Line

First, to all the teachers and staff standing outside before and after a long day in all types of weather helping these kids get into school and home safely, you're awesome and we appreciate you immensely! The car rider line is the highlight of my days now. According to my husband anyway. He says when I tell him… Continue reading This One Time in the Car Rider Line
