It is Time to Rewrite the Story

It is time to write a new story-a story about respect. I cannot have my child growing up in a world where no means anything other than no.  My daughter cannot be a part of a movement on social media where writing a status including “me too” is still a thing.

Texts With My Daughters

I think one of the best perks of having older kids is that they now have cell phones. I know, the cost is no fun but I really love knowing that I can talk to my kids anytime I need to…I also love that some of our most hilarious, serious, or irritating conversations are actually in writing.

A Child’s First Word

You always wonder what your child’s first word is going to be. Mom’s always hoping that “mama” is first, dad’s always hoping “dada” is first – and don’t get me started on the extended relatives!

The Pain of Mutually Divorcing

I never imagined the pain that would follow jointly making the decision to divorce. The decision was so raw, so authentic, so true, so right, so freeing. I felt high.
