"Just let them loose, why don't you, lady?!!!"
A gray-haired lady quietly but audibly fumed, through gritted teeth, at me, "Just let them [my 2 1/2 year old twins] loose, why don't you, lady?!!!" at the grocery store today. My parents flew in from out of town. My mom, the twins, and I were out shopping....

If only it were a fool's joke; or, maybe I am the fool
Today was a busy day in the making. My older two, one in 2nd grade and one in kindergarten, are home for spring break. That means, I have four children, between the ages of 2 and 7, around the clock. But, to add to the fun, I had invited two girls who had b...

A Question that Left Me Surprised and Speechless
Yesterday afternoon, after church, my four kiddos and I headed to Trader Joe's, a favorite grocery store that opened just last month. I hesitated in going, because there was much to do: cooking, grading papers, eating (for five hungry mouths), amongst other...

When the Bottom Neary Fell Out
The day before yesterday was rough. That was the first time in awhile I was nearly in paralyzing despair. The reality that I have not been successful in landing a full-time job for the 2014-2015 year was hitting me like a ton of bricks. The fact that I stil...

Dreading Bedtime
2014-1-24 My confession is that lately I have been positively dreading bedtime, especially when it's time for the twins to go to bed for the night. I started sleep training the twins when they were just a few months old, not just because I am some wise sage...

It's my thyroid; it's my iron levels; no, it's my HECTIC schedule!
I have had my moments of wondering why I seem so tired much of the time. Maybe because I am no longer in my teens and my energy levels are not off the charts. Perhaps having four children between the ages of two and seven have some impact. At my last annual...

Dreaming of Romance
My confession tonight is this: I watch some Korean dramas and Japanese dramas from time to time. Handsome men who patiently and consistently court and pursue women who may or may not be interested in them make my heart swoon. I sometimes day dream about som...
