You guys!  I had so much fun with the Mothers’ Day posts!  Thank you to everyone who participated.  I had no idea so many awesome moms would be willing to share.  It just shows me how much we need to validate our fellow moms.  It’s hard work, and you ALL deserve recognition. Frixion pens are […]

Friday Finds

What?  Two posts in one week?  I know.  You should be impressed.  I just thought I’d take a few minutes to share some awesome finds from this week. Beauty & the Beast.  Oh my.  It was every bit as lovely as I imagined it would be.  I smiled through the whole thing.  If you haven’t seen […]

Hello out there… anyone still here?  It’s a good thing that blogging isn’t my job because I’m not very good at it lately… This post has changed my life.  I stumbled across it last fall and asked for an Aeropress and a Milk Frother for Christmas and my sweet mother obliged.  Let me just tell you, […]

Welcome 2017!  I was ready for the new year.  The Fall of 2016 was not great for me… I had some growing pains as a parent, but in retrospect, my general bad attitude may have been attributed to my hormones being out of whack, so who knows.  2017 is here and I have new patches.  Whoop!  However, […]

My Sweet Grandma

So many good memories I have of Grandma place her in the kitchen.  I picture her standing at the counter stirring saccharine tablets into her tea with a long spoon and slightly shaking hands.  I picture her sitting around the table with “the cousins” playing Hand and Foot or Skipbo.  I picture her using the special […]

I was looking at sweet little baby pictures earlier and caught myself thinking, “Oh, I miss that!” And then I quickly came back to my senses.  But oh, how sweet are those newborns! We had to have a family conference just to figure out how we were all going to get to all the places […]

Just when I think I have this parenting thing down, something goes and throws me for a loop.  Last year, our first year of high school was a breeze.  I was wondering what the big deal was with teenagers, because obviously, the middle school years were tough, but my teenager was golden… then boyfriends happened.

Oops.  It’s Tuesday.  I started this last night and fully intended on finishing.  Best laid plans. The first week of school was… for lack of a better term… dramatic.  #1 had relationship drama, #2 had “I-don’t-like-riding-the-bus” drama and #3 had to switch around her complete schedule on the second day of school which caused her to […]

So, as you know, I recently turned 40… and Mama Train turns 40 in just three short weeks.  What better way than to celebrate together?  I had a dear sweet friend who told me I couldn’t plan my own birthday party, and completely took over and did everything for us.  It was a great evening […]

Forty.

  So I turned 40 this week. 40. Wow. It doesn’t bother me.  Turning a new number.  It’s just that 40 seems so, well, grown-up.  I feel like I should have my life in order and have things together, whatever together means.  Instead, I still struggle. I struggle to raise Godly children who I want so […]
