{beautiful exhaustion}

It’s three o’clock in the morning and I’m awake…..again…..for the 100th consecutive time.  Maybe it’s the 112th….who can keep track anymore. I’m exhausted. My eyes are burning. I can barely hold my head upright. And I know that tomorrow is going to be a L-O-N-G day. They are all long days lately. But then I […]

{raise those boys up right…}

I came across this blog post this morning and I was so glad that I read it!! It touched my mommy heart so profoundly….I just wanted to share. It takes a few minutes to read, but if you have the time it’s a few minutes that will bless you, too!  My favorite quote from the […]

{the weekly rewind ~ a sleepover, a birthday, and two lines}

Whew. That is the word that comes to mind when I think about the past 7 days. This week has been one of the busiest all summer…..but I guess that’s to be expected right before school starts back up. Last Sunday, Ryann came home after spending a week at her father’s house and we jumped right […]

{character building lessons}

Some call it bribery.  I call it negotiating. Let’s face it, as mom’s we occasionally find ourselves cutting deals with our kiddos in order to get things done. “Do your homework and then you can go play outside.” “Eat all of your dinner and then you can have a brownie.” Now you can look at […]

{sometimes we just need a little grace}

Am I the only one who has “bad mommy” days??  Yeah, I didn’t think so. There are days when my resolve is tested (along with my sanity) and I start to wonder if any of us will ever come out of this “experience” alive. But then I remember….grace. Not only are we expected to extend […]

{grace learned the hard way}

“I HATE YOU” The three words every parent dreads hearing. It seems almost impossible that this once adorable little bundle of joy that smelled of Johnson’s Baby Shampoo and captured your heart a little more with each new expression…..could turn around and shatter that same heart into a million tiny pieces. But let me tell […]

{drowning in my home}

So, one might think that because I’ve taken an extended blogging break that our lives must be pretty ho-hum these days. Quite the contrary.  We’ve actually been just as busy as usual….if not more so. My problem is that with all of the life going on around here I feel like I just sometimes don’t […]

{the little things}

Tonight’s conversation at bedtime: Bubba:  “Mommy, you (pats bed beside him).” Mommy: “Bubba, Mommy needs to go clean the kitchen.” Bubba: “No, Mommy, you (again pats bed beside him).” ********I thought I might also mention that although my son is two and a half years old, he has a speech delay and so a lot of […]
