Not The Mommy I Thought I’d Be

I wish I can remember the exact date when I wrote this. I believe it was sometime winter 2016 or early 2017.  Last year was a hard school year. New baby. New home. New routine. A lot of growth I had to do as a wifommy. This was something I wrote when in the thick …

I Think I Grew Today

It was a Friday. I was scheduled to spend the night away at a conference that evening. I planned on dropping my girls off at 4PM. My plan for the day was to get in a days worth of school while I tidied up some and packed for my night away. I had planned on …

I HAVE HAD ENOUGH DOGGONIT!

I thought maturity came with age.  More specifically, I believed that with age came a change of ones nature.  That is not true...at least not in this case. As a child, I sectioned my school year into parts: new school year excitement, my birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas/New Year's, Presidents Day, Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, Valentine's …
