When Grandparents Aren’t Involved

Thank your mom for letting you have a day out without kids in tow. Thank your parents for watching your kiddos so you and hubby can have a date night. Thank your dad for coming to your kids’ soccer games and cheering them on. However they’re involved, thank your parents for helping you through this messy life of parenthood.  Because involved grandparents make it a little easier to shoulder the everyday parenting duties.


Chic-Fil-A Hacks You Need Now

Chick-Fil-A is arguably the best fast-food chain for moms to take their kids to.

Call on your faith, family, friends whatever is needed for you to just hold steady and get by. Sometimes that’s all that’s needed. Keeping the faith and holding on.  

I Had Kids “Too Close” Together

Yes, to some I had my kids “too close” together. Yes, the comments like “You know how this happens, right?” were hard to stomach. The stares and snickers were (are) noticeable. But I have the honor of being a mom to three beautiful and bright, precious kids! Who cares how far apart they are? Every stage and age has its challenges. I like to think I’m getting mine in large doses of long-suffering and laughter!
