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

Let’s Figure This Out Together

Dear Firstborn,  I failed a lot with you, I still do. I did a lot right too. I hope those good things, the ones I'm proud of, are the things that flood your mind when you think back to this time.

A Letter on the Last Day of Kindergarten

Dear sweet child, You did it! Your first year of school ended today and you made it through the year better than I could have imagined. I don't think it's really hit either of us that it's over. These last few weeks have been a whirl of birthday parties and last soccer practices and games… Continue reading A Letter on the Last Day of Kindergarten

Dear Mom, Now I Know

For many years I never truly understood what being a mom really meant. I looked at my baby pictures and you were always smiling so big. You always had fun activities for us to do and dressed me in frilly little dresses. I was thankful for such a great childhood, but I never knew what… Continue reading Dear Mom, Now I Know
