When my husband had his vasectomy a few months ago, I had no idea what to do or how to support him, and I didn’t even know who to ask. We were the first of our friends to have kids, and now that we have all the kids we need, we were the first to […]
I find myself constantly asking myself “why is it so hard to just be nice??” It seems that every time I turn around, I’m hearing about stories of bullying at schools, reading degrading or demeaning comments on social media, or observing people simply not acknowledging the presence of other human beings. Seriously, what went wrong?? […]
We are proud to partner with many of these businesses to give you this sponsored gift guide.
I am sure you have probably seen the Progressive Insurance commercials making fun of turning into your parents. My favorite line might be “that’s some good mulch.” This is mostly because my husband and I just had a ton of mulch delivered to our house, and we spent an entire weekend filling in flowerbeds. While […]
Growing up, I had no clue that I was an introvert. Somehow, I had this perception that introverted people were shy bookworms who stayed home all day, every day. Essentially, in my mind, they were boring. I was not boring. I didn’t like to read. (Note I said didn’t). I was very involved in sports, […]
April is Month of the Military Child. During this month, all branches of the military join together to recognize the unique challenges children in military families face.

“What do you think about me signing up for a 10-day meditation retreat this summer?” my husband casually asked me as we were eating dinner the other day. I replied, “I think it will be OK. We can work it out.” Girl, you’re zen as hell, I know you all are thinking. Thanks. Namaste. Namaste […]
Hi, my name is Michelle, and I am guilty of using the hypnotic powers of YouTube Kids to save my sanity. Ok, great, we got that one out of the way. Now, before you crucify me for rotting my children’s brains with screen time usage or using the iPad as a babysitter, allow me to […]
Aside from my husband who is a tech junkie, my family tends to live in the dark ages. This isn’t because I am exerting some high moral opinion on electronics. It’s mainly because I am lazy. I never get around to charging anything, and I refuse to put games on my phone because well, it […]
“One foot in front of the other. That’s it. Just keep going.” I’m mentally coaxing myself. Numb. Dazed. The walking wounded. “Please don’t bump me,” I’m silently pleading with the strangers who I pass in the supermarket as the bruises on my arms and shoulders throb with a reminder of this morning’s events. My head […]
You told me you were deploying today. I wasn’t that surprised. It comes with the job. You were due. We were due. It was time. We’ve been so fortunate for the several years without one, though time away was still frequent. When you told me, I immediately went to that place. That place of preparation. […]
