…being strong

Hey folks! I just came off of the BEST WEEKEND EVER. Ky had her first recital and I’ve been in awe of her since. Her little group all went on stage, did their thang, and left...no tears! I'm pretty sure that is UNHEARD of! I just could not stop watching her little videos. And as… Continue reading …being strong

….Reaching a Breaking Point

I have reached my breaking point. I’m convinced these “Terrrrrrrrrrrifible Twos” are turning me grey (no, like seriously...I found a grey strand and named it Larry). I was ok with Ky being terrible at home. I’m not the best person when we’re home anyway. I just want to lay down, watch my shows, drink wine,… Continue reading ….Reaching a Breaking Point

Hey folks! Have you ever found yourself dreading this question: "So what do you like to do for fun?" No? Just me? *shrugs* I've had THE most difficult time attempting to answer that question.

…traveling adventures 

Hey folks! So I have done it! The impossible! And now I am in my family's history books. This past Spring Break I decided Ky and I were NOT going to spend it in NC. We needed a break.

…being an advocate for all children

Hey folks! So I had this conversation with a friend of mine that I thought would be great to talk about... As you know I'm a teacher - Pre-K in particular - and I deal with a few things when it comes to Pre-K.

 …dating…ish

Hey folks! One of the things I knew would be a difficult thing to do, is date. Not that I was so great at it before, but I just knew it would be harder now that I'm a mom. In my mind, I thought a woman with a child and an "absent father", somehow made… Continue reading  …dating…ish

…feeling overwhelmed

I don't know how folks...women...single moms....do it. But somehow I am, and I'm always amazed when I get through the day without losing it. Well the last couple of days, I have...I've ended the day in full blown tears. Just balling...when the day is over...and I finally have time to breathe...or in this case, cry.… Continue reading …feeling overwhelmed

Hey folks! Well it's Inauguration Day and like most people, I'm terrified of what's to come. I mean, in no way am I a political wiz or understand much concerning it. But I do know the difference between right & wrong (most days anyway!) and how others should be treated. This week, I've taught my… Continue reading …being afraid
