If you’ve spent anytime on my blog, you know that my family is my number one concern pretty much all of the time.

This morning we had a meltdown at breakfast. And by “we”, I really mean my daughter. Her water wasn’t cold enough. So I launched into this spiel about unimportant the water temperature was. I asked if in five minutes, when she’s away from the breakfast table, it make a difference. I asked how Keep Reading
Before we get started, I just want to say that I feel a little odd writing basically a diary-type post - focused on me and what I'm doing. But I hope that you can find inspiration in what I'm doing and know that everyone's goal and goal setting process looks different. So, January first has come Keep Reading
It’s that time of year again. Oh, you know what I mean. The time of year when you can’t take your kids into the store with you because the entry way is lined with toys they want. Those stores know exactly how to get parents to buy. And of course, it’s not just toys lining the entry - they know Keep Reading
