Haircuts and Other Tedious Tasks
Each of us moms and dads have to figure out which environments invite our kids to be vulnerable. We have to find those safe spaces and claim them as our own. We only get a short amount of time to speak into their precious lives, and I don’t want to look back and see that I missed it.
When is the last time you’ve just laughed? I need it, and so do you! Laughter really is medicine for the soul!
Don’t Judge Me
We cannot let perceived issues and assumed judgements dictate how we are going to feel about life. Adulting is hard. Parenting is hard. It’s all hard!

However you feel about the new school year, don’t feel guilty about it. If you miss your kids, celebrate that. And if you are glad to have the routine back (which is a much nicer way to say that you might be glad for them to be gone all day) then rejoice over that.
Adding Another Child
When we found out that I was pregnant with our third child, we were so excited. Yet, we wondered how our kids would react. Would they welcome this baby?
BE SURE TO LOVE ON YOUR LITTLE ONES NOW! Watching them turn into adults is part of the UNEXPECTED JOY of parenting.
Let’s Take Some Time for Ourselves
If loving my family means that I stop for a minute and just take care of me, then I argue with myself and avoid it and make up every excuse for why I shouldn’t do that. But it shouldn’t be that way. How do we love people if we are running on an empty tank?
