Disciplining a Teen IS SO DIFFERENT!!

A few weeks ago I wrote about my relationship with my oldest daughter, and it’s amazing how many moms reached out and shared their stories with their “older” kids.
One thing I have heard from all of them is that – they will always be your kids, no matter how old they become. Plus, there’s definitely a natural pull to doing things their way and better than you.

Magical Chaos – spinning through the Chrysalis of Adolescence with our Daughters’

This is it! I’m finally getting what’s been in my heart out onto a page for all of you to read and journey with me…… or should I say us?…… through.

I remember when I was a new parent, even a newlywed, having all of these incredible women around me that I could look up to and ask questions and tap into for the knowledge I needed for those very precious new moments in my life.

CHANGE….all the live long day

This parenting journey is constantly filled with this blessed word we use – Change. “An act or process through which something becomes different”

Being my own human self, I am in this constant state – becoming different in so many ways. But today I don’t want to talk about myself – I want to highlight ONE of the constant barrages of changes happening in our little family.

Ever since Jude was in hospital and we’ve had to readjust our schedule for his sake – I have come to realize that I really treasured certain parts of my day and now they’re all over the place because we’ve had to reshuffle.

4 Reasons Why I Tell my Kids the Truth

This week started a little too quickly for me and I haven’t even taken the time to actually just breathe and enjoy a quiet moment alone. Well, here it is – I’m sitting in my car waiting while my 8 year old is having a ballet lesson, my 3 year old is sleeping in the back seat and my 10 year old is in between being “chatty” and peeking over my shoulder to assess what I’m saying about us as a family and possibly her as well……. Let’s be honest – she’s looking to make sure I don’t misrepresent her specifically. Cue eye roll. Continue reading “4 Reasons Why I Tell my Kids the Truth”

#metoo – How do I make a difference?

I woke up this morning and scrolled through my facebook (as most of us do before rolling out of bed) and I noticed the hashtag #metoo has been imprinted on so many profiles, tweets and instagram pics. Ok, I know this world is sick – but wow! There are so many souls that have been scarred by self gratifying idiots. Continue reading “#metoo – How do I make a difference?”
