Finding our breaths
When the girls were young toddlers, grappling to make sense of the confusing world around them, their frustrations were easily identified: A tantrum when told, "no," a red-faced outburst when they couldn't find the words to express themselves, an overtired ...

The energy of warmer days
Ask me how I am doing the last weeks of May, and there is really only one way for me to answer. With hands stretched out, face tilted to the sky, eyes closed and a deep breath, inhaling the wafting scent of lilacs in bloom as a soft breeze cools my exposed,...

The Right Words
There are popular sayings I don't relate to on the topic of motherhood. I've never felt it is an experience of my heart walking outside of my body; the girls are their own people, with their own hearts. I cringed when my therapist reminded me that motherhoo...

Whine O'Clock

Little Women
Raising daughters is deliciously complicated. I welcome the challenge. I lean into the difficult. I relish and lap up every chance to try and get something right. There is so much on the line. There are big conversations to be had. I am honoured daily with ...
