Surprised by Disobedience?

Parenting comes with a lot of surprises. The baby showed up before his/her due date (or in my cases, long, long after). The toddler decided to create her art masterpiece on the white chair while you were putting the baby down for a nap. The preschooler overheard a word you’d rather they didn’t know and […]

#HomeschoolLife

I was homeschooled during those dreaded middle school years. I heard they were rough. I got to completely bypass them as I was homeschooled for three years during that whole timeframe of my life.

5 Tips to Start Writing about Motherhood in 2017

Someone once told me the days are long, but the years are short.  By someone, I mean literally every mother I’ve ever met. My daughter turns two next month, and I’m going to say something revolutionary: these have been two loooong years. That’s right—I don’t think the years seem any shorter than they have the rest of […]
