That’s Your Job as Parent – MOM

The end of the day nears, Mom works to get her two sons into bed snug as a bug in a rug so that they can fall into a deep state of slumber {for a few hours}. As soon as her sons fall asleep she goes upstairs to tend to her oldest, and only, daughter. This is their Mom/Daughter time, a cherished half hour together of reviewing homework, laughing and rambling about whatever. All that this daughter wants is her Mom to listen. Due to Mom’s great listening skills, her daughter tells her near everything about her life, school and […]

Moms: It’s Ok to Refresh

A lot of moms feel guilty about taking time off for themselves or asking a family member or friend to watch their kid(s) for a night while they take a much-needed rest.

But Mom … I just …

I am seriously soooo sick of hearing “but mom…I just…<insert 6 year old’s reasoning behind why she can’t do something or why she wants something here>“.

No matter what my conversation is with my oldest, her response is normally “but mom…I just…” I can be asking her to get ready for her shower, asking her why she can’t remember what she did in school, or anything. It doesn’t matter what the question is, I am guaranteed to have the same […]
