TIME 2 CELEBRATE OUR MOMS
Dear Moms ~
Today is your day – the day that the world sets aside to honour you, to celebrate you and to gift you with a small token meant to show their appreciation of your daily sacrificial acts throughout the years.
Today is the day that we acknowledge that without you in our lives we would never have eaten a decent, healthy, well-rounded meal (no offence Dad but beans and hotdogs is classified as junk no matter how much you doctor it up!); we would have lived in slightly wrinkled, slightly smelly clothing, our hair would have rarely been styled properly and during the nightly routine of bad dreams and ‘can I sleep with you’…. we would have more then likely ended up on the floor with a pillow!

Is Love Enough?
“Mommy? I wanna stay home with you and Daddy, because I love you both so much Mommy. And also it hurts my heart when I’m not with you.”
With two sweet arms wrapped around my neck, how could I EVER let go. And more to the point, how am I supposed to just say, “Too bad kid. You’re going to school no matter how much it breaks your heart.”
But I am getting ahead of myself. Let me back up and start at the beginning. Paint you a proper picture, and then if you would be so kind as to give me some parental guidance…. Continue reading I AM that Mom

“As those who have gone before left you an inheritance of faith, so will you leave us your own inheritance of faith.”
It gives me pause. As I re-read that statement, I feel the need to reflect on how I have inherited my Dad’s faith.

Today was ‘one of those days.’ Although, truth be told, most days actually run into the other and are seemingly ALL ‘One of those days’. The rare days are the ones free of fits, tantrums, battle of wills and pure exhaustion. And let’s face it, they just don’t come around very often – not when living with a 3.5 year old.
Suffice it to say – it was ‘one of those not so rare days‘ starting at the crack of dawn WITH (drum roll please) a complete and total break down. Tears, screaming, complete and total fit central. Continue reading Sing me a lullaby
Yesterday was one of those days. One of those “I feel like a failure” kinda’ve days. You know them well, any parent has them I’m sure. Most days I am quite sane and can logically reason and know that I am a loving, attentive parent who is doing the best she can for her children. Then there are those days that I am illogical and take everything to heart and feel as though I am the worst of all parents in the world!
I recently took a new position at work, which comes with its pros and cons. Pros – I no longer work shift work – Cons – for the kids it feels like I’m gone a whole lot more. 4 days in a row every single week.
It’s been three weeks and has been a huge adjustment for the kids, and if I’m honest me as well!
Thus brings us to yesterday. Continue reading SuperMom or SuperFail
