The Let Down

After every milestone, there’s a bit of a let down. When I got back from my honeymoon, I felt a little sad that I’d never have another wedding and honeymoon. (HA!) When my ex told me there would be no more children, I got a lot sad that J would be an only child.  When […]

On Becoming a Disney Princess… or some such nonsense…

I’ve spent a lot of time over the past three days wondering what I’d say about three days ago. I’ve turned and twisted it in my mind, looked at it from every angle, smiled and nodded and turned it again, hoping that somehow I could capture the essence of what happened from 2:00am until just […]

Running Thirteen

Have I mentioned that I’m running a half marathon? Only a billion times? Because guess what… I’m running a half marathon on Sunday morning with a start time of 6:03 am. A half marathon.  Thirteen (point one) miles. Guys, if you’d told me six months ago that I’d be preparing to drive six hours south […]

All My Mistakes

When I crawled out of bed, you were still sleeping, lashes flush across your cheeks and one arm thrown out across the bed as if you were claiming all of it as your own.  I was as silent as possible, slipping into the cold hallway, and gently closing the door behind me; you needed your […]


Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time feeling like I’m standing inside a glass, soundproof box.  I’m stuck and I’m silenced, and I don’t like either. All my life, I’ve felt like I had something to say. All my life I’ve felt like if I could just find the time to sit down and […]

Happy Friday!

Yesterday I battled a mean bout of vertigo that is hovering just outside my peripheral vision today. I’m hoping it will stay at bay, but who really knows.  Hope you all had a fantastic Thursday/Valentine’s Day and spent it with the people or persons you care the most about.  I know that I did; J […]

Pinterest Parenting? Nah, I’m Good.

I used to be one of the many:  the mom pacing the floor, totally worried people would think I’m an absentee mother, nursing my working mom guilt while I waited anxiously for the sign up sheet on this or that party to be pasted to the door so I could rush up with an eager […]

Forty Days

Not so technically, “Fat Tuesday” is all about stuffing your face.  It’s the most American of all the not really American holidays… a symphony of gluttony before the fasting of Lent. I grew up Southern Baptist, so Lent was something that other people did… you know, the ::whispers:: Catholics. But as I got older, I […]

Children Do Better With Parents Who Get It Together

There’s a billboard just outside my town and coincidentally, I pass it every time I take J to meet up with his grandparents for his visitation weekends with his father.  It sits on the left-hand side of the road, so I only see it on my way up, never on my way back.  You’d think […]

Mothering in the Workplace

Today I’m over at Liberating Working Moms, talking about why I think mothers make the best employees, bosses, and co-workers.  Take a peek at my post and let me know what YOU think…
