Signature Style, Only Smaller

Signature Style, Only Smaller

One of the cool things about having kids is witnessing the magic of a personality being developed and defined. Before they are even able to speak well, the can (and do) make clear what they prefer. It's cool to watch. Helping my boys be expressive in their clothing is one way I like to encourage them to be themselves.   ⬆️CLICK PIC TO READ MORE⬆️

Baking It Easy

Baking It Easy

One of the things I always wanted to do with my future kids, when I imagined them in my head before I was a mother, was bake goodies for holidays, special occasions, or just a rainy weekend indoors. I pictured us measuring our ingredients while reinforcing lessons about fractions and addition - so that some education was snuck into the fun like the secret ingredient in a family recipe. Well, that semi-quiet and calm day of baking with my boys may come when they're a bit older. For now, our everyday real life is loud, and rather messy. That's fine. I'm learning to love our beautiful mess. ⬆️CLICK PIC TO READ MORE⬆️

My Angel Bear

I got the angel bear pictured in this photo in 2009, when I left the hospital. I'd expected to be leaving with my baby son. It was a hard, long road to coming to grips with that reality, and eventually healing from the profound hurt. I've gained several lessons in the process . . . and also learned that while MANY experience this pain, only few ever feel comfortable speaking about it. That has to change. ⬆️CLICK PIC TO READ MORE⬆️

Mr. Meltdown & The Monster

Three year olds are unpredictable. To be fair, many three year olds struggle with the reality of beginning to be able to fully feel and identify emotions WITHOUT allowing those emotions to completely take over their entire bodies. To give context, my particular three year old child is a wonderfully intelligent and imaginative, very dramatic human not unlike his mother. ⬆️CLICK TITLE ABOVE TO READ MORE⬆️
