A New Kind of Halloween

Everything is different now. No more taking the kids out trick or treating while the parents drink from liquor stashed in a wagon. This was our standard since my first born started walking. Some were fun times and some I don't remember much about at all. Tonight, kids two and three will be out with... Continue Reading →

Kids These Days

This morning, my daughter's high school received some sort of email threatening violence. As is protocol in our district, the police department came out in force. The children were asked to stay in their classrooms ("shelter in place"). Within an hour or so, the investigation was over and the students were able to go about... Continue Reading →

The Challenges of Three

If anyone had told a young adult me, a proud only child, that I would THREE children, I would have laughed in their face.  Who would do that on purpose, I would think.  Well...here we are.  I'm a middle-aged mom of three:  Girl "S"-10, Boy "A"-12, and Girl "M"-14.  I'm going to just cut to...

Mommy Issues

From the moment I found out I was pregnant with my first baby, I had some pretty clear "Mommy Goals". : Raise empowered, independent, resilient, happy, and empathetic children. Love them unconditionally. Always have an open line of communication. Don't turn into my own mother. Number four sounds awful doesn't it?  It feels so unnatural... Continue Reading →

Today, I Give Myself An “F”

I like to think that I am a good parent. Not AMAZING but definitely doing my best with the tools I've been given. Especially since I quit drinking. Today, I failed in a huge way. I am embarrassed by some of the words that came out of my mouth. It was not anything to be... Continue Reading →
