Cuddle with your Peeps

Forgive the blurry Instagram photo. It’s what happens when it’s late at night and you’re not using a flash. This is me and my girls, following a new ritual. In an effort to get myself to bed earlier, I’ve invited the kids to come tuck me in. I realized that I was neglecting making the […]

Bake Someone Happy

I played in the kitchen this weekend. It was a very tasty way to spend a few days. But, the highlight, of course, was to sit by the oven with these two, waiting for our cookies to bake. I confess that I’m not always eager to let my little ones bake. I’m usually in a […]

Live Like Life is Short

Stop and smell the roses. Roses don’t last forever. The seasons change. The flowers fade. And if we don’t enjoy them while we can, we might miss out. My mom’s dad passed away when I was just five. Shortly after his passing, a plaque appeared on the kitchen wall that read, “Let us love one […]

Turn Off the Phone or Leave it at Home

Turn off your phone or leave it home and be more in the moment than you would be otherwise. No doubt you’ve read more than a few articles or blog posts about how folks misuse their phones to the detriment of their relationships. It’s a hard line to determine between when a phone is a […]

Let Your Child Choose

I took FishChick4 shopping with me the other day. We were just going to go to Trader Joe’s. Until I remembered we needed a new pencil sharpener. Ours bit the dust, as it does every school year. We use a lot of pencils apparently. And we’d gotten to the point that my son was going […]
