“I can’t stay a baby, Mama”

I got to play with my kids tonight. I got to spend real time- no husband, no screen time, no running, no multitasking, no phones- yes I took pictures and videos obviously because it's me. I wanted to cry the whole time, not because I was sad but because I was so damn happy and… Continue reading “I can’t stay a baby, Mama”

Feelin all the feels

Not just because Hudson is 2, but everything this week seems extra sensitive for me. I'm in a good place in my life mentally but every so often my emotional bank is robbed and I feel every emotion all at once. I'm sad because my kids are getting older, happy to watch them grow, anxious… Continue reading Feelin all the feels

I’m a better teacher than a mom

I had a meeting today with a family who I feel very connected to. I can't always say that about all of my families but I feel very connected to this one in particular. There's a lot of pushback because of the nature of circumstances, but I feel like they get me and I get… Continue reading I’m a better teacher than a mom

I'm tired. I need to fill my bucket a little more than once a month, if that. And I don't mean leave… Continue reading I haven’t been out in 4 years

Seasons of Life

Life can be so crazy sometimes. I mean CRAZY- kids, jobs, money, balance, trying to be healthy, marriage, etc. How does anyone stay sane? I really would like to know how anyone stays sane these days. How does anyone not live paycheck to paycheck? People who don't have degrees make millions of dollars and people… Continue reading Seasons of Life

I just need a minute…

When you're a mom- stay at home mom or working mom, you literally never stop. When people around you say they are exhausted, half the time you want to clock them and say- you don't even know. Even thought they probably went through this when and if they had kids. But damn times have changed.… Continue reading I just need a minute…
