Motherhood Lesson #568: Letting my kids enjoy their lives…without me.

Motherhood Lesson #568: Letting my kids enjoy their lives…without me.

Some motherhood lessons were easy to learn. I will always be able to swaddle a baby like a little burrito. Others, however, were a little bit harder to wrap my head around. Being okay with letting my baby cry it out instead of dashing into their room and rocking them back to sleep? That was tough, and I’m not even sure if I ever learned it...

People don’t talk about it…Miscarriage.

People don’t talk about it…Miscarriage.

Miscarriage can be considered a taboo topic, and if it is brought up, people usually try to avoid it. I have asked myself several times why do people not talk about it? Is it too painful? Is it just too personal? What if I want to talk about it, but others feel awkward? These questions have been on mind and a struggle for me for the last 3 months....

Breathing Room Contest {It’s back for a third time!}

Last year we started something called The Breathing Room contest.  It was an opportunity for you to nominate a deserving mother that you knew who was going through something tough and could really just use some breathing room.  A minute to “get away from it,” focus on herself for a change–even just for a second; to breath. A gift...

Nesting = Love

We haven’t even met the middle of January yet, and I’m full-swing into deep cleaning. This urge hits me every single January as I take down the holiday décor and stare at all the “blank canvas” spots in my home. First, I see all the dust and clutter. So I’ve been cleaning like a crazy woman, attacking random things like the pantry, the...

Bringing Baby to Day Care….and Cheap {but nice!} Diapers

Sometimes being a Modern Mom is full of angst. I was extremely blessed to have my mother-in-law watch my new baby while I went back to work until she was 6 months old. But, during those three months of baby-grandma-bliss, I was in a state of anticipatory dread for the day I had to drop her off at day care for the first time. Don’t get me wrong, I...

Where’s the gift at the bottom of a chasm of mourning?

I woke up this morning with the unspeakable horrors of the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on my mind. It came unbidden, bringing tears to my eyes, and I swallowed over and over to try and get rid of the lump in my throat. My youngest stirred, so I went into her room, climbed under the edge of her covers, and held her ever so tightly while...

My mom’s better than your mom….

My mom’s better than your mom….

Becoming a mom took my crazy perfectionism up a notch. Maybe ten notches. I used to compare. Okay, maybe I still do. Who doesn’t? You know, that friend who sews her daughters beautiful, boutique-style dresses with matching hair bows for every special occasion; or the one who feeds her four year old Thai curry hotpot with a side of edamame, and he...
