I have been having this recurring dream. It plays over and over, and I can’t seem to shake it. And it’s so bizarre. I’m back in college and about to graduate. Or I’ve graduated, I can’t quite tell. Each time is a variation of the same dream. In any event, I start to freak out … More If you dream it, they will come.
It’s not too much to ask. Every year, moms get one day and one day only that they can request something. Or multiple things. I think last year for me, it was to get my nails done. This year, it was nothing monetary or alone activity. It was completely different. I didn’t want to have … More All I want for Mother’s Day
I do not have a poker face. A blessing and a curse, I suppose. Why hide how I feel if I really want to show my feelings on my face? My husband tells me all the time that you can see what I am feeling on my face and in my body language. I roll … More When to just grin and bear it.
I am 37 years old. Wayyyyy out of middle school. Far away from the cliques that plagued me, that left terrible notes in my locker, that ousted me from their groups. I overcame all of that, and I now have 3 kids, a loving husband, and a good job, as well as free time to … More Okay, moms, let’s be real.
It’s been ten years. Yes, I am proud of how far we’ve come, but I’m also frightened. There is so much that has changed that I never knew it would, or could, for both positive and negative. We are an amazing parental unit. We support each other, in discipline and otherwise, and we are usually … More What happened to the marriage I thought I’d have
Seriously, why do we? No matter what it is, we always look back and think, what could have I done differently to prevent this? And 99.9% of the time, it’s nowhere near our fault. Looking back to an earlier post (Your cheatin’ heart), I mean related to this. Currently, I am with the close friend … More Why do we always blame ourselves?
As I sit in the airport, two hours early for my flight, I sit and drink a glass of wine. And while I sit, I have time to think. What’s that, you say? I haven’t the faintest idea. In our world nowadays, we are moving faster than we can think. There is more demands on … More What did I do with all my free time before kids?
Every now and again, there is something that makes you happy, makes you smile. You try to make those moments last forever. Many times, I find myself just looking wistfully at my kids, until they snap me out of it with a cute smile and a “what, momma?” It makes you happy to just look … More Wowed.
Do you see those posts about the moms who are like, don’t judge me until you have kids? Sort of like, you have no idea what it’s like when you become a parent. Or the ones who said, I thought I wouldn’t do that before kids and then I caved? Well, I’m not one of … More I said a lot of things before I became a parent, guess what? I stuck to them.
Not me. Not my marriage – just want to say. But it happened to someone close to me, twice, and I am still reeling from it on behalf of them, so I can’t even imagine what it has done to them over the years. Yes, I said years. This is a person close to me. … More Your cheatin’ heart
