I have been thinking lately how sad but yet truly funny it is the difference between my parenting styles when I am at home alone vs. out in the ever critical public eye. Granted there are days when I am too tired to care who is watching or what they think, but for the most …
My heritage I was raised in a family of faith Of hymns sang around the piano Of bible stories on tape Sunday school and church most every week And bedtime prayers I was raised in a family of togetherness Through the hard times Through the good times The chaos that only a family of our …
When I had my first, I honestly thought I was a whole lot more prepared than I really was. I thought that after having about 60 nieces and nephews that I was somewhat mentally and emotionally prepared. It turns out nothing can prepare you for the wonders and trials of being a mom to littles. …

I sat down this morning to write my post for today’s gratitude challenge, topic:laughter. I had a really hard time and started many posts and deleted them. I gave up and decided to go grocery shopping. Good choice because usually shopping with my kids results in either tears or laughter and a lot of times …
