This morning, while cooing over Evie’s adorable-ness, I had a flash to those mothers who, for whatever reason, are jealous of their daughter’s good looks.  Generally, these...

The Hardest Job Ever

Whenever you hear about stay at home moms say how hard their job is, I think it automatically conjurs up this image of slaving away over some difficult physical task, or wracking your brown over an intellectually difficult issue.  But that’s not what makes being a stay at home mom...

Is it time to leave Nevada?

So our illustrious “governor” gave a State of the State speech last night.  And the state?  Is not real good.  Nevada is in trouble right now.  The budget is a nightmare.  And the governor suggested last night that perhaps one way out of the mess is to give higher education...

The Normal Morning That Wasn’t

It started out not unlike every other morning.  The routine has been the same for years.  Kile gets up with his alarm between 5:30 and 6:00am (sometimes later, but not on this morning).  He would have his bathroom time and then take a long, steamy shower.  Why does he always...

Speak them aloud

So I got to do something that all stay at home mom’s of little children DREAM of doing the other night.  I got to leave the house and meet friends for dinner and a movie.  WITHOUT KIDS.  It was a miracle.  It was hard, to pull away and know that...

Blur

Nights are a fog these days.  Moments strung together, blurred together, in an unending stream until the light from behind the blinds starts to lighten.  She wants to eat, but she can’t seem to get a latch.  We’re laying down, that’s the problem. It would seem then, that there’s an...
