The Girls Gymnastics Competition for 2019

Two weekends ago, we went to the girls first external gymnastics competition for the year. We’ve been to many of them before but there was something different about this one – well, for me anyway. I wasn’t as confident about my daughter’s performances as I would normally be. Yes, I am ‘that’ Mom – don’t judge me. Continue reading “The Girls Gymnastics Competition for 2019”

Adolescence……how do we even?

There are just too many thoughts running through my head at one given time. I often think that’s why I don’t write as much – where do I start? The spaghetti mix that’s in here (finger to forehead) is not for the faint hearted – I guess I should know, right? (insert skew faced emoji).

But, today I was chatting to a friend online and it made me realize that there’s one thing that keeps nagging and running around my brain that I’m needing to just write down and share. We have two daughters – that are beautifully unique and respond to completely different approaches to everything. So when it comes to helping them navigate their delicate journey called adolescence, I must admit that it’s been interesting and challenging all at the same time.

“Second Child” Mommy

Roughly this time of year marks a time when we normally ship our oldest daughter off to a church camp. Well, this year – her sister joined her. If you were on the interweb with us when we took our first born to her first camp – you will remember the emotional roller coaster I sent myself on. Shame, that poor ‘First Child Mommy’ that I look back on now was so tense about a lot of small things. Continue reading ““Second Child” Mommy”

The day I let my girls write a post……

I want to start with a disclaimer – this one is being written by my daughters. I take no responsibility for what is about to be documented. 

Hi, we’re Shaveh’s daughters. We’re not typing – our mom is because it’s faster that way. Ok, um – lol – we would first like to say – lol – I can’t stop laughing. (“oh my word!” says Iraina) (“I have a stomach cramp” says Aislyn) ( “What!” says Iraina “MOMMY!!!”)  Continue reading “The day I let my girls write a post……”

Why the silence? I’m back and here’s why….

As you can probably assume based on the date of my previous post – it has been a really long time since I have written anything on this precious little space of mine. Yup, even I look at the date and wonder – what happened? I feel like I’ve ghosted myself. #facepalm Continue reading “Why the silence? I’m back and here’s why….”

Preparing to be Moms at 8 & 10 years old

Mothers day has come and gone. The week that preceded the actual day was filled with so much that I honestly felt rather overwhelmed on what I should write about. I didn’t know if I should blurb about everything in one post or rather split it up into little posts and rather have little meaty tidbits over the next few days.

The second option seemed to work a little better for me – then I could go on and on about something and feel like I had to cut anything off prematurely. Continue reading “Preparing to be Moms at 8 & 10 years old”
