The Monday Morning Tantrum (1)

The Monday Morning Tantrum

I’ve come to dread Monday mornings. I head downstairs to the kitchen to make my tea, and the first thing I see is a pile of mess covering the kitchen counter, leftover food in the sink, and a stove covered in last night’s grease splatter. I find my blood pressure rising and temper boiling as […]

6 Things My First Pregnancy Taught Me

I’m currently 25 weeks into my second pregnancy. That means I’ve been pregnant for a total of 62 weeks of my life, which equates to over a year. Despite the fact that I have been a human incubator for this fairly significant amount of time, I still feel that I am hardly an expert on the […]

DIY Valentine Card Box {for under $10}

Since our daughter is only 21 months old, I thought I’d have a few more years before having homework to complete with her.  Nope.  On Monday, her daycare folder included a request that, by Friday, we send in a box for her Valentine’s Day cards to go in at their party next week.  I love […]

Discovering My Passion, Every Two Years

Here’s a well-known fact about me: I have had LOTS of interests in my life. Discovering my passion did not feel like a sack of bricks hitting me in the head, either.

I’m telling you right now that every mom needs to have a group like this.  Anyway, I was looking around this group of women when it […]

Finding My Passion in the Silence

Finding My Passion in the Silence

Children are my passion. Maybe its my extroverted personality (82% according to Meyers-Briggs) that makes me enjoy the energy exchange with children. Perhaps it’s that shaping the future with little ones is fun and invigorating. Although it’s sort of serious in the long run, it’s not serious at all day by day, which is just how […]

Be Kind to Your Heart

If you read any women’s magazines, you know that February is heart month and February 3rd is Go Red Day. Because heart disease and stroke contribute to one in three deaths among women each year, this is a great time to assess how you can be kind to your heart. But please DON’T think I’m going to […]

OUT

Carving Out Me Time

I am an anxious person by nature. In college, my perfectionism led to so much stress that I fell into a dark bout of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I’m not talking about the organizing-your-closet-by-color kind of OCD. I’m talking about the check-everything-five-times-before-leaving-the-house-or-surely-the universe-will-make-something-terrible-happen-to-you type of OCD. My mind had me in this game, and the stresses […]
