I sat on the living room floor completely defeated, worn out, and feeling burning hot tears sear a path down my cheeks. I was ready to give up, give in, and give out. My body was spent. My mind...
I know the title of this post sounds crazy, but it is true! Let me explain... On a couple of occasions, I have allowed my toddler, who is almost three years old, to have temporary bright colors put into her hair...
Thank heaven for little boys. They get to carry on the family name, live up to legacy of the men before them, and tend to be great protectors. Raising my son, everything is competitive; from who can vacuum the fastest,...
Our oldest started kindergarten this year. That meant a whole lot of new big things, school, routine, and friends, just to name a few. Because both my husband and I work 40+ hours a week out of the home,...
