I honestly feel scared for my kids. The reason why, is that they’re growing up in a world where I (as the parent) have to consider self defense classes for my 10 year old girl and boy (when he gets there). In case they get into a sticky situation. As well as make sure that they’re all considerate to other human beings without being taken for a ride and potentially being harmed. Our world is sick, and my job is to raise decent human beings in it. Continue reading “The “talk” with my kids : Wait, just Wait.”
Yoh! It’s already Thursday! Where did the week go? I can honestly say that I was completely not motivated to write anything, mainly because I was throwing my full focus into potty training my son. Now, we tried a few months ago and that literally went down the toilet. (excuse the pun) I tried the various methods that I used with my two girls, and nothing seemed to stick. Continue reading “What I’ve learned from Potty Training”
As most of you already know, I’m home educating my children. With that comes the continued advantage of snatching up momnts to teach my little people in unconventional ways. So, I thought to add to our wonderful array of weekly uncut videos that we so shamelessly post – I would add a section where they could type up their responses to random questions about where they’re at in their little lives.

Hello Friday! Boy, am I glad to see you! It’s been quite a week and even though it was a tough one – we’ve made it all the way through and have had a great finish. Last night was awesome people! If you haven’t figured out yet, then have a read about why I’m so amped.
I’m sitting here and I’m actually debating in my head on whether or not I should write down how I’m feeling in this present moment. Mainly because the internet is a permanent kind of place and I don’t want to have myself regretting what I’ve put out there. And yet I also feel it’s important to not always put up a brave face Continue reading “Ministry – What no one would really write about….”
A few weeks ago I wrote about the different Mom “me’s”. It’s honestly the craziest journey to hold all of the “me’s” together and somehow put up some form of ‘normal’ in each scenario. All of this ‘holding together’ while trying to actually discover what each part means and whether they should actually be up front in this current “scene” in my life’s play. Continue reading “My husband’s Patience added Value to another part of “me””
Teaching a toddler to do certain things often proves to be difficult. Now, Jude is the type of kid that likes to get other people to do things for him. I honestly think it’s the combination of being a boy and being number 3 in the sibling line up. Up until now, it’s been “cute”. But I’ve come to slowly realize that an almost three year old that can’t feed himself (more like won’t feed himself) is not a healthy thing.
