I’ve been a little quiet on here lately because life has been jam-packed with insanity, both good and bad. I had to take a pause and embrace some quietness before my head spun like Medusa. I still have ZERO idea on this whole back-to-school disaster and I’m in a slight conundrum because I’ve got 3 … Continue reading Another New Chapter
I’m a believer in mastery and I’m a believer in nurturing natural talents and interests. I believe that kiddos grow into well-rounded humans when they’re challenged and humbled. I believe in losses and I’m on the fence with participation trophies (as great as they are, they open another can of worms down the road.) My … Continue reading Dear Extra-Curricular: I Love You
Well, it’s come to this. I’m writing this entry in hopes that it’ll not only giveme some therapeutic relief but that some of you will potentially sound off and point me in any sort of direction. Yep. I’m relying on throwing this out there into the Internet abyss, in hopes that a possible stranger just … Continue reading Dear Internet, I Need Advice.
Okay Internet, I’m about to talk to myself here and fire off some thoughts in my brain because I’m a single mama- I don’t have a person to roll over to at the end of the night to debate things with. I’ve got me and my brain and trust me- it’s a banter that I … Continue reading To School? Or Not To School? To Work? Or Not To Work?
So, I had someone ask me how to best support a single parent and I thought I’d jump on here and write it out as I’m sure every single one of us know a single parent. And we all know that these single parents have tough struggles and it’s hard to figure out how to … Continue reading How to Support a Single Parent
Y’all. I live for holidays. Doesn’t matter what we’re celebrating- I’m totally there for it. Halloween will forever be my favourite and even though it’s July, I’d be a big liar if I said we didn’t have a cryptic hand in our front garden. I’m THAT committed. So, I didn’t decorate for yesterday’s Nation holiday … Continue reading Our Holiday Wednesday in the Not-So-North
I started reading a new book because that’s just what I do. I like to read- and I like to read books that really make you think deeply and if the author can tie their thoughts to scientific facts, even better! I’m so there for it. “Introspection” was always a popular word in my psych … Continue reading Partner-less Parenting. (is that even a word?)
I picked up a new book today. Well, that’s a lie… Amazon delivered 1 of the 500 books that I’ve ordered since Covid-cation. And this one is more of a manual than a novel or self-love kinda book. This one is helping me master personal and professional greatness and the first line I read was, … Continue reading What Am I Doing to Reinvent Myself?
It turns out, that I’m not actually quite so terrible of a person. I am single handedly surviving a pandemic with my 5 kids… sort of impressive, eh? I mean, we have a lot of days where we’re all smiling and eating well-balanced and nutritious meals, only to be followed by my 5-year olds eating … Continue reading Dear Covid: You’ve Taught Me A Few Things.
Self-admittedly, it has taken me longer than I want to admit to bounce back from my divorce. And it’s not the fact that it took me a long time to get over my ex-husband, but it’s the fact that there was more damage done than I had expected. My brain started to believe that a … Continue reading Life After a Toxic Relationship
