Actions Speak Louder Than Words

November 21, 2013

I have written blog posts in the past about doing more with my children, being present in the moment and giving them my all. I feel good about myself after I write about it, almost like a new mom….and then forget about it shortly after. Continue Reading...

Without Them There Would Be No Me

March 18, 2013

When my husband Pete and I got pregnant with our first son Chase, we were so excited to see what he would be like. Who would he look like and who’s traits would he posses? The same went for our next two pregnancies which turned out to be daughters. Continue Reading...

The Kitchen Is Closed!

Like most parents I know, I am always trying to find magical solutions to problems with my kids and their behavior. Although, I haven’t come up with ways to stop nose picking, arguing with one another and potty talk, I think I may be on to something! Continue Reading...

They Know More Than You Think.

December 20, 2012

October 3, 2012

I was going through Chase’s backpack the other day after school and I noticed that his lunch box still contained all of the food I had packed for the day’s lunch. “Chase,” I shrieked, “why didn’t you eat your lunch today??” It was his third week of school and each day that lunch box had come home empty, so I was pretty confused at this point.
