Talking to Kids About Politics


Whatever political side you fall on, I think we can all agree that this election year was the craziest! We can’t go anywhere without seeing images, political ads, news stories on television, the internet and social media. And if your kids are anything like mine, they have been asking A LOT of questions. So, what […]

Pregnancy and Infant Loss – Rainbow Baby


The only reason my daughter exists is because my other babies didn’t make it. A baby born after a miscarriage or loss of a baby is referred to as a rainbow baby. This month we remember all babies born sleeping, or we’ve carried but never met, those we’ve held but couldn’t take home, the ones […]

What are you most thankful for?


With Thanksgiving today I thought I’d take this opportunity to list what I am most thankful for this year. 1. My daughter I’m so thankful that I’m a mom.  There were so many years when all I could do was long to have children of my own.  Then, finally, I had my daughter. Even on those […]
