Gratitude

Gratitude

In light of Thanksgiving, my friends. I have so much to be thankful for, I don’t know where to begin.

Thank you for your open-mouthed kisses, your love of…Continue Reading

The Last One…

The Last One…

I cut my son’s hair the other day. Well, I didn’t cut it myself; I took him to one of those kids salons that you find in mini-malls. Ones that are abundant with plastic toys, videos and sugar-laced morsels all placed strategically in hopes to distract your children while some underpaid, patient stylist trims their…Continue Reading

Date Night

Date Night

Or as I like to refer to it, a deliberate time we set aside each week Adam is home to finish our sentences without being interrupted by a tiny human under three and a half feet tall. It is coveted, it is sacred and serves as a time to regroup, reconnect and recharge. Or totally…Continue Reading

Thank you for not being Elsa

Thank you for not being Elsa

Halloween has come and gone and many parents are left with sugar-addled kids craving more. I am one of them. Our festivities went well, despite that my 2 year-old adamantly refused to wear his homemade dinosaur egg costume. I finally acquiesced and threw in the towel. It was a battle I was willing to lose.…Continue Reading
