Mother's Day

Posted on May 14, 2018 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Mother's Day 2018 started pretty much the way the past few years' Mother's Day celebrations have started: breakfast in bed, beautiful handmade gifts and hugs and kisses all around. The day ended with me in Wal-Mart, at 9 o'clock at night, in a pair of old sweatpants, looking for a giant bottle of professional grade acetone.

Just a little while before that my 8-year-old son accidentally (and this time, really, it was an accident) knocked over some of my 11-year-old daughter's…

Braving the Waves

Posted on October 5, 2017 at 7:48am 0 Comments

I was raised by the cancer whisperers.

You know...those people who think it is in your best interest to shield you from any bad news, death notices or catastrophe warnings. Everything is always fine and you never need to concern yourself with what is going on. 

This made for a pretty quiet existence, however it also left me a bit unprepared for the emotions that come like a tidal wave when something bad really does happen. The thought may have been 'this is for her own good,'…

To The Wolves

Posted on September 21, 2017 at 1:17pm 0 Comments

My kids started second and sixth grade a few weeks ago. The start of the school year has been an event for the past 6 years but this year, we threw something new into the mix. Over the summer we moved across country. So my kids started new schools, 3000 miles away from their old one, away from all their friends, not going to the same school together, riding buses for the first time...whew, I'm getting tired just writing about all these changes!

The move has brought changes for us all…

I was home sick with my 6-year-old son today. It hasn't been that long since that has happened, so it was not a completely unusual event. However, he isn't much of a day sleeper so even sick, it's a rare occurrence that he'll sleep during any part of his "day off."When exhaustion caught up with him and he spent the better part of the afternoon passed out on my bed, I was surprised. That was rare. With my older daughter in school and my husband at work, I was suddenly transported back a few…

I Think I've Heard This One Before...

I was walking through an amusement park with my husband and kids the other week when we found ourselves in the middle of some sort of a festival. The sights and smells were inviting but what really struck me was a certain song that was playing over the loudspeakers. It was a man singing in Spanish with a guitar strumming in the background. The song meant nothing to me in my day to day life but it put me immediately in one of those "where have I heard that before" moments. And then, as quickly…See More

I Need You!

I got out of the shower this morning and realized that there was nobody there.No one had interrupted me. No one had called my name, needed me or generally wanted to disturb my peace.I donned my robe and tiptoed out of the bathroom to survey my surroundings. My eight-year-old daughter was reading a book while my 4-year-old son was building train tracks. I could have stayed in the shower for another 20 minutes and nobody would have noticed. I could have languished in the steam, basked in the warm…See More

Trust

I sat out in my backyard tonight watching my 8-year old daughter and 4-year old son playing in the summer evening air. It was nice. I had the music on, a cup of coffee in my hand and my feet up. I took a rare moment of relative peace and quiet and just watched them. In particular, I was drawn to my daughter. This was no accident. She was drawing me in.I was repeatedly asked to watch her as she attempted "death-defying" tricks on our backyard swing. Now although defying death is a relative term…See More
