The Mom You Thought You’d Be

The Mom You Thought You’d Be

Oh the things I said I’d never do.   We all had a “list” didn’t we?   Like never feeding my kids junk food or pop until at least age five.    Drive my kids around until they are sleeping.    Or let them get away with screaming their heads off in...

The Pressure Cooker of Comparison and How to Get Out

The Pressure Cooker of Comparison and How to Get Out We so desire for things to function as they were designed but this can trip us up when we focus so intently on it. “What we focus on we give power to.” Let me explain this further to help you better understand what...

How to Stop a Fight or Outburst Before it Starts

I spent many years in a heap trying to navigate a sparkly-blue-eyed, but explosive child. A lot of our family life is on pause as he has very specific social needs. He arrived in this world and forced me onto a completely different grid…there was nothing mainstream...

All Fired Up Over Meltdowns

The heater blows full, on high, warming the van before we take off on a quick zip to see family. It was our oldest sons’ idea to go a couple days ago and we aligned our Sunday plans to fulfill his request. But as the classical notes from the CD player breathe through...

It All Started Here…

It All Started Here…

It was only 4 weeks after my son was born that he started screaming. Even as a newborn he hardly slept for more than 10 minutes at a time and unless I kept him tucked in bed with me ( err…I always said I’d never co-sleep ) the nights were just as demanding. With...

Happiness Is…

Happiness Is…

I walked in the rain today. The pouring rain. Had the trail nearly all to myself. The water made it’s way through the seams of my coat, soaked the fronts of my pants and dripped off my hood onto my face. The joggers that did pass me seemed as delighted as I was,...

Lost At Sea

I am by far stretched- more than I ever thought possible…beyond and then beyond some more. So much so that I cannot see what used to be the borders of my comfort zone.   They are so behind in the distance through valley and...

Leaning In

Leaning In

This is where the "rubber meets the road"...where you take a step forward before the step actually appears. Once again letting go of what is familiar. On a human thinking, logical level, you cannot see the foundation. So moving forward looks like falling and sure...

Three Beds Full

Three Beds Full

Prickly is most likely the first thing that comes to mind when you think of wool. The scratchiness of a wool sweater, scarf or blanket was enough to send my body into convulsions. For years I steered clear of any material containing the smallest amount of wool knowing...

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

No school today so I’m in my jammies drinking coffee instead of packing lunches. A bit of snow on its way, and even though we had every intention to take down the trampoline, there it sits like a cupcake dusted in powdered sugar out in the yard.   I drink deeply...

I Love Laundry

Depending on how many persons reside in your home, you many or may not have laundry up to your eye balls. Call me crazy, but out of all household duties laundry is my favourite. Mind you, it wouldn’t be if I had to wash a weeks worth of clothes by hand. Thankfully...

Can You See The Heart?

Can You See The Heart?

Keeping in mind that the heart is at the centre of all life, you will most likely spot it in the picture now if it hasn't already caught your attention. Its ironic that the heart shape appeared to me after the branches had undressed themselves for the long, cold...
