Mom fail. I hear this a lot. Sometimes from my kids, but mostly from myself. That little voice in my head that says you are not doing it right. You are not good enough. You are losing this game. The possibility that this voice is right terrifies me. Yet all around me, people think I […]
This post contains Affiliate links.Hey you, yeah, I’m talking to you…with the week old milk stain on your shirt? Can you grab the attention of that other mama currently raking the sale bin for used soccer cleats in “HOTPINKPLEASEMOM”? May I snag your attention for a second? Do you feel like amidst the lack of sleep, cold coffee […]
As if being a working mom wasn’t hard enough, being a teacher-mom can really kick your butt. The hard part in this career is the time and emotional commitment it requires. Planning lessons, designing fun activities, grading papers, attending meetings, addressing behavioral issues, answering emails… you get the picture. Don’t get me wrong, I have […]

Years ago, I remember having a conversation with my Husband. I asked him, “If you could have the perfect job in the world what would it be?” He replied, “It would be to have my own business, working from a laptop, on a beach anywhere in the world.” So the mission began, what could we do […]
Now that the festivities are over, we set to putting things in their place again and cleaning up the toys and tinsel. Sweeping out the old, ringing in the new. So, today M and I were cleaning the bathroom together during another west county downpour. When I say cleaning, I mean I was trying to […]
If you’re like me, buying a new bra is the last thing I care to do. It’s the last thing I want to spend money on. For the last three years (yes, three years), I’ve been wearing these cozy sports bra-like bras. You know, the ones that promise to be comfortable for 18 hours and conceal back […]
The first time my husband brought me home to meet his parents, I realized my mother in law was all the things I had hoped she would be. She was friendly and accepting, and she loved him so much it was contagious. The second time he brought me home I realized we had a lot […]
My husband feels done and I want to respect his heart. But what that means is that I’m never going to get to feel another life inside of me, and my heart breaks a little at the thought.
I think my family’s debt story is very similar to a lot of other families. We made a conscious decision to finance a large bill, rather than save up and pay cash. In our case, we renovated our house on a $20 thousand credit card, which enabled us to refinance our home to a 15-year […]
Last Thanksgiving the emotional wounds you caused were fresh and raw. Yet, with every potato I peeled, I missed you. When we sat down to eat there was a hole in my heart where your chair should have been. You were supposed to been seated beside me, holding my hand during grace — and […]
I’ve always loved the idea of the “New Year’s Resolution” – starting anew with a clean slate, a fresh beginning, endless possibilities. But, let’s get real: by the third week of January, I’ve usually broken the promise, failed the goal, or cheated on the diet. This year, it will be different. This year, I’m gonna […]
The fresh start of a New Year is always so inspiring. We make resolutions and promises to better ourselves and finally do the things we said we always would. It’s a time for us to take that chance and make the change! I’m all for growth and bettering myself, but the pressure of the January […]
