Join in Simple Saturdays
Around here I'm doing less blogging and more emailing. Sign up to get the bi-weekly email Simple Saturdays in your inbox.
You will love it. It isn't just any old email! It is a fun, quick read of insights, tips and references for everything simple, on purpose, and waffles.
I’ve said before that I’m no parenting expert and I think it’s humorous when people ask my parenting advice cause it’s something like. . . . just be the mom you are, coffee and Jesus, and pair your sweats with red lipstick. Who is ready for my advice column?! But, as with the desperation that […]
This week the #wholemama prompt word is ‘build’. I’ve been thinking of different things I could write around this word but wasn’t really sinking into any of them. Then I had a text conversation with a mombestie and I told her that I admired the culture she was building in her family. What I mean by […]
Yay! It’s #fiveonfriday. A free for all to share a list of “five things” with you. I love it because I can write about anything and everything. Like “Five Reasons You MUST Read or Watch the Outlander” (which would pretty much look like this. . . Reasons 1-4: Jamie and Claire, Reason 5: Scotland. And by […]
I’ve been up for the past 6 hours, well ‘officially’ up. I spent the night rocking two sick toddlers hoping they wouldn’t wake the third. This isn’t news to anyone with toddlers. Sleep is elusive as Curious George’s tail (thanks Rae, I’ll never consider him a monkey again!) My morning has been spent making snacks […]
Hey there lovely readers. Did I every tell you about the time I put myself into the ER with a ridiculous self-inflicted injury? Here is how the story goes, as I wrote it out last month. . . A couple of days ago my eye started hurting. Each morning I wake it is redder and sorer […]
My oldest son is five today. I’ve always thought I was a little strange because my kids’ birthdays have come and gone without much nostalgia on my part. I have never been sad to see a birthday pass because I had just spent the last year trying to get them to the ‘next step’ of […]
I’ve always been a person who reacts to life and takes the safest, easiest route possible. Let me elaborate, I’ve worked hardest on things I was good at or enjoyed, all the other things fell off my list of considerations. Turns out this is an unsatisfactory method of living and I’ve been trying to be […]
My husband laughs at the tower of clean laundry I crowd into the living room once a week . I gradually queue it up in the basement then spend an evening instagramming my full baskets, watching a movie, sorting laundry (side note: I don’t fold my kids’ clothes, that’s nonsense!) and protecting my whiskey glass from […]
Dear friend, Today my heart ached for you, and I don’t mean that as cliché. I clutched my hands to my chest and winced, there was a grief inside me, shooting down to the deep parts of my love for you. A love, our love, so knowing and intuitive that I can feel your pain […]
Lately my one and half year old has a new game. He spins and spins in circles and then stumbles around laughing like a maniac. Because turns out kids are tiny little glorious maniacs. And like most other homes with maniacs, there always seems to be someone not wearing pants or peeing behind a tree, […]
