I Broke up with My Laundry

Laundry is my number one nemesis as a mom.  It’s just the most overwhelming, tedious and time-consuming thing that controls my life.  I absolutely hate it.  Yes, I do have the right to use the H word.  With three boys, a husband, and me, who has the most clothes of them all, the amount of […]

A Letter to My (More) Rested Self

Hey there. I’ve noticed you have been looking a little bit more rested lately so I wanted to have a chat before too much time has passed. I didn’t want you to be so wrapped up in doing things like learning new hobbies, spending time with friends, enjoying your life, etc. that you forget what […]

Do I Love You Enough?

My family is formed through both adoption and birth. We adopted from Ethiopia first, then I gave birth to two more children. My relationship with my oldest daughter is complex because, at the back of my mind, I am always aware that she is also someone else’s daughter too. We had the privilege of meeting […]

The Tired Mama That CAN!

Monotony. It’s a big part of parenting. We live by our routines and adhere to the tiring repetition we often feel bound by. I have a vivid memory of when my girls were babies. It involves words running through my head in a zombie-like posture, “wake, feed, burb, wrap, snuggle, rock, sleep, repeat”. Most days […]

Mud Pies and Other Things That Terrify Me

I will be the first to admit that I do not care for sticky, messy, dirty, or slimy things. My mom tells the story of when I was a little kid in ECFE and I would stand at a distance, watching the other kids doing the activities. I was perfectly happy to watch and not […]

Why Moms Need the Enneagram

In ninth grade, I gave a speech about the Myers-Briggs personality typing system. I enjoyed giving the speech so much that I, a relatively shy 14-year old, won speaker of the day. Personality assessments abound, and I’m fascinated by them: StrengthsFinder, spiritual gifts assessments, the Four Temperaments, the DISC assessment, the Highly Sensitive Person test, […]
