More than one Sentence

The paper said “Describe your child’s personality in one sentence to help us to better get to know them.” I says pardon? One sentence? How do I put into words the incredible child that I brought into this world and have watched grow from a tiny infant into the amazing four-year old that she is…

My Lobster

Slam. The door shuts and I walk away. How easy it would be just to ignore him for the rest of the day. Month. Year. How quickly could I shut the door on my emotions, build a wall, close the window on how I feel. Easier said than done I suppose. But those aren’t things I…

Better than Christmas

The streets were glowing with the light reflecting off of them as the rain drizzled down, threatening to end what had been deemed, in our house, the most exciting day of the year. She told me it was more exciting than Christmas. We’ll see when Christmas comes. I was woken that morning at 5:30 am with…

Why October Hurts

I sat on the bed and went through the basket I had pulled down from the top of the closet. Items I hadn’t seen in some time, many put up there because they had no other place, others because I didn’t want to see them anymore. Soothers that had been taken away by the “meme” fairy,…

Ornaments With Love – A giveaway…again!

I love me some Christmas… What?

It Ended Perfectly

This weekend I found myself laying on the couch in a boo hoo emotional state after a friend returned home from New York. She had a blast. In a glass. She told me tales of people who had few family obligations, stories of clean houses, talked about wine on patios, and how great it tasted to…

Anniversary Love… Even through the Gulping

I could see him going for a second gulp of his glass and my spine straightened. WHY did he have to drink so loud. Why the gulping? Looking around the room I saw the clothes left by the front door, because where else would you put socks when you come in from outside and your…

Ready or Not

In three more days our daughter will leave the daycare she has been at for the better part of her toddler years and go to school. My heart is racing. If I close my eyes I can see her running in circles around the playground, holding hands with her bestie, laughing until it hurts, and…
