It’s Okay Mama

It’s okay mama. It’s okay that you bought the original goldfish crackers because your toddler wanted them instead of the organic bunny knock off ones that don’t taste as good. Yes there may be some moms out there who will judge you, but it’s okay. And that’s just silly anyway. Processed food is processed food…

The Hardest Part

It was a typical end of the week afternoon in my backyard when I realized what I dislike most about being a mom. My single best friend had stopped by for a visit. She was attempting to entertain my kids while I grilled dinner, me cursing myself for not bringing home a Costco rotisserie chicken…

The Wolves Are Hungry

There are two hungry wolves fighting for food. The first wolf is goodness, and happiness, and love, and light. The second wolf is anger, and anxiety, and evil, and darkness. Which wolf wins? Well, my friends, it depends on which one you feed. Right now, I am learning to feed the good wolf. It wasn’t…
