The Space Between
There was a time that I counted your little toes because the
time seemed to allow for it. There was a time that I used to pull your head
slowly into my neck so I could breathe you in. Oh how I miss that. There are
pictures that remain in my mind, and they a...

This Is Ten
This Is Ten... Ten years ago I was not yet a mom. Our eyes hadn't met yet. I had not yet held you in my arms.  Ten years ago I was full of nerves about the unknown. Would I be good enough? Was I prepared? Did I even have any clue what I was doing? The short...

A Glimpse
I caught a glimpse of you through the window one afternoon. The sun was just at that spot where I had to squint to see. I watched you while you helped your brother practice his pitches. I watched you knowing that you wanted to do something else, but saw you...

Nightmare In America
I watched my
first horror movie when I was in fourth grade. I was at a sleep over at my
friend’s house and her parents made me call my parents for permission first. I

it felt too...

In A Blink
Yesterday I went grocery shopping to prepare for the snow
storm because kids eat A LOT. I bought all the ingredients for things to cook
on our day off. I was happily driving home thinking about homemade French toast
for breakfast, roasted butternut squash s...

The New Year Resolution That Came Without a Warning
The other morning was the same as every weekday morning
in our house. The kids came to the dining room table to eat their breakfast,
one wide awake and giddy, and the other not so much. I stared at my coffee
maker as the coffee dripped at a pace that felt f...

My Best Gift
Every year I tell myself that come December, I am not
going to get all bananas about the holidays. I tell myself I’m not going to
stress about every little thing, and that I’m going to enjoy the little
moments. Yet every year when I look in the mirror on an...

A Beautiful Mess
My youngest
son is in first grade this year. The other day his teacher told me she had
something she wanted to share with me. Immediately I thought, oh boy let’s hope
it’s not too embarrassing. He’s a good kid, but he’s six years old so you know
how that ca...

We Are The Helpers
It was rainy
and colder than normal today for August in New Jersey. The boys and I piled in
the car and headed to the grocery store with a very specific list. They helped
me get the items and fill the cart. When we got home they helped me unpack all

Teach Your Kids That Words Are Powerful
Choose kind
words. Lead, don’t follow. If you see someone being picked on, say something.
Make us proud with your actions. Don’t say something behind someone’s back that
you wouldn’t say to their face. People are different. Our differences are what
make us ...
