Walk a mile in my Spanx.

I recently went for my yearly physical and here’s the conversation I had with my doctor: Me: “I’ve gained about 10 pounds over the last year and I’m tired all the time.” Doctor: “Well, this is common of a woman of your age.” A WOMAN OF MY AGE. MY AGE??? In reality, I’m 39. But […]

The truth about me: I feel ALL the feels

Post from Kim. Here’s a newsflash: I suffer from some pretty wicked panic attacks. Yep. Me, the one dancing in pajamas, has moments when anxiety and depression forces me into a fog. Right now, I can’t stop obsessing about the children caught in this refugee crisis. Seriously, read this by clicking HERE, look at the […]

Ode to teachers: Thank you for not selling my children online

Last week we got one of “those” calls from PC’s teachers. In her sweet voice, she told me how he had a rough day. “It’s like he’s been shot out of a canon while on double espresso shots,” she claimed. I totally believe her. Can you imagine teaching more than a dozen kids like my […]

Forty Days

I will admit. I mostly went to church as a pre-teen/teen because there was a really cute boy in my youth group. There. I said it. I mostly drew hearts and our initials during sermons. I vaguely remember this time before Easter being super depressing. Then, finally, on Easter I got to wear a special […]

She’s got his eyes and my anxiety.

Lola is eight. EIGHT! I remember the moment she was born. I expected my first thought to be, “I am overwhelmed by the love, this is a perfect moment, this is all they said it would be!” Instead, I distinctly remember thinking, “I love this little person, WOW that hurt, and I HAVE NO IDEA […]

Resolutions will have to wait.

Everything they say about the Flu is true. The “hit by a bus” feeling, the fever, chills .. EVERYTHING. We started popping Tamiflu yesterday  and have made HUGE gains. Just look at the video: today we can all sit upright! Baby steps…
