'What Are We Going to DO Today?'

(0) Comments | Posted September 2, 2014 | 5:03 PM

"What are we going to do today?"

I've heard that question more times than I can count. Usually from the moment the littles peer at me from freshly-peeled-opened eyes. The sun is just starting to sliver its way through the blinds and bright morning eyes stare at me. "What are...

The Pink in the Sky

(1) Comments | Posted April 8, 2014 | 12:12 PM

"Did the pink in the sky happen yet, mommy?" Did it happen yet, he asks it like the washing of color over the vastness of air was holding out for him. The pink just brimming over the top crust of morning grey sky, holding, holding, holding back, and waiting for...

When It's Cold

Cold weather calls for creativity.

When it's cold, hallways become bowling alleys, inside voices become outside voices, rolling a strike on the carpet becomes almost as good as scampering through a sprinkler in the yard.


Laundry baskets become race cars. And when...

The Real Changes of Motherhood

(8) Comments | Posted March 14, 2014 | 12:12 PM

Motherhood changes you, they say. You'll never be the same.

It's true. I took my baby to the doctor for his 9-month checkup. Scottie is truly our baby, the youngest of three boys, forever the baby as much as it will make him cringe in future years. "Check his...

My 40-Something Self

(3) Comments | Posted March 7, 2014 | 6:00 PM

I ache for my 40-something self. The one who sleeps mostly through the night with no warm footed pajamas suddenly sliding in bed beside her. The self who strolls leisurely through the grocery store, getting lost in the sheer volume of choices for cuts of meat, deciding on none and...

Our Snow Day Turned Into a Work of Art

(0) Comments | Posted February 12, 2014 | 4:09 PM

Wednesday morning my newsfeed was flooded with cell phone snap shots of a weather phenomenon known as a sun dog. They occur in freezing temperatures when ice crystals cause a refraction of light. And let me tell you, they are brilliant.

It was a snow day, I was home...

Am I Doing Enough?

(4) Comments | Posted February 11, 2014 | 8:21 AM

As a mother, the question I ask myself the most is "am I doing enough?" Like a million times a day. Am I doing enough?

When Bub pulls Teebs right out of his pants in the middle of the hallway and between giggles and wails their skulls clunk together because...

Appreciating All of the Stages

(0) Comments | Posted February 5, 2014 | 9:34 AM

On Monday, I got a voicemail in the morning; it was one of the kindergarten moms inviting Bub over to play. He was excited and giddy and that afternoon I drove him over and the only nervous question he asked was, "Do you think they have a dog?"

The Photo of a Girl and a Kitten That Will Remind You What It's Like to Be a Child

(2) Comments | Posted January 2, 2014 | 4:48 PM

Last weekend I was taking some photos of my cousin's kids. We just happened to be on a farm with brand new kittens prancing around in all their kitten cuteness and the kids were absolutely eating it up. It was perfect.

OK, it was purrrrfect.

I'm a lifestyle...

Parenting Like There's a Repairman in the Basement

(2) Comments | Posted December 27, 2013 | 1:49 PM

A few days ago we had a drywall repair guy in the house fixing up a few things. The boys and I spent the morning building train tracks in the living room, hanging out in our pajamas, being calm, being well-behaved. I found myself taking extra care in talking to...

Answering the Question 'What Do You Do All Day?'

(37) Comments | Posted December 2, 2013 | 10:51 AM

Little boys with hot breath steaming out of their mouth and nostrils like dragons creep into my room. They nuzzle up close to me, face skin to face skin, and whisper with their hot breath, "Mommy?"

I don't answer right away, if I keep my eyes closed maybe they'll...
