• Let Trust Be The Foundation

    I’ve always been fascinated with couples who have been together for over 30 years. My parents will be celebrating their 40th this year and it’s been one heck of a roller coaster for them.  Most of the couples I’ve asked say a long-term marriage is reflected upon the communication between the two parties.  But I have to disagree.  Creating Your Foundation Some people will only tell you what they want you to hear, and in some cases, they might even hear what they would like you to say.  If your relationship is built on trust, you know that whatever comes

  • My Toddler Eats 'Fast Food' Every Morning

    Go ahead, judge me.  I choose to give my son fast food every morning out of convenience. I’d give it to Jeff if I could, but he prefers eggs in the morning.  Wait, you thought I meant fast food as in what you buy from a drive-thru?  No.  Fast food as in, food that is easily prepared.  My son eats fruits, yogurt and pancakes.

  • Why I Never Regret My Children

    Being home with a toddler and an infant sounds like something straight out of a horror film, and sometimes it may feel that way.  One screams, the other one cries… and then our dog howls. And the moon may or may not be out.  Just the howling is enough to drive someone mad.  But then there are moments of silence. It’s Not That ‘Bad’  You read memes about moms having to deal with temper tantrums, and how certain infants cry so much that you want to pull your hair out. And don’t get me started on the Facebook photos about
