Not Enough

I have a child who has “quirks” as I tend to call them. I don’t often say disabilities because labels suck, but more so, we’ve been through about 8 diagnoses, only a few of which have stuck. Who knows where we’ll be a year from now. I was fortunate because in my job, I work […]

To the Child Mine Will One Day Marry

Sweet Child, Whoever you are. I thought of you today. Today, amidst puzzle pieces, and fruit snacks, and one hundred fifty lego pieces and in between a thousand laughs, 4 dirty diapers, and a nap time that seemed much too short, you came to mind. I don’t know why, but the thought of you came […]

I’ll Always Want Another Baby

I will be 35 in a few months. 35. The age I said I would be done having kids.

I Used To Be Cool

I was recently searching for my car in a Walmart parking lot, praying my Ben & Jerry’s wasn’t melting, when I had a moment. I literally stopped walking and stood still for a moment. A bumper sticker on the back of a mini-van said matter-of-factly:“I Used to Be Cool”. Me too, girl. I wanted to [...]

Disney Park or Cruise?

If you have small children and are considering a Disney park versus a Disney cruise, let me offer you this advice: Choose the cruise. We did Disney World a few years ago with a 3 year old and a 7 month old (plus 2 grandparents, which helps A LOT!). The park was wonderful and totally […]
