Queen

I was working while my baby boy was playing with blocks. He excitedly brought the one pictured above over to me. "Mama, you!" he smiled and pointed at the picture. I couldn't help but laugh, "That's right baby, the Queen." I have taught him well. Don't tell his dad that he brought the block with... Continue Reading →

Another Year Around The Sun

I really like new beginnings: New Year's, the start of the school year (even though I'm not in school), flipping to a new month on the calendar, the beginning of a new season, my birthday. I really love the feeling of starting fresh that comes with a new beginning. It gives me new energy and... Continue Reading →

You always hear of those disasters that babies/toddler/young children and so forth cause. Yet, when you meet your... Continue Reading →

A Healing Word

One of LM’s first words was “Mama” which he chanted constantly, until somewhere around 18 months, where his chanting turned to only consisting of “Daddy” and “Ball-ball.” “Mama” was reserved for the occasional outburst when I (the Mama) would stop LM from participating in such fun activities like trying to throw all of Daddy’s shoes...

Be Brave

  As I’ve been observing my toddler’s budding personality, I have found that parenthood has this sometimes bizarre side where you watch aspects of yourself outside of yourself. I see LM do something funny and laugh at himself. I, who have been known to laugh at my own jokes, can’t help but smile and think,... Continue Reading →
