But Mommm: The Sleepover

I heard the pitter-patter of feet the second I turned out the lights. It was quickly followed by muffled giggles from under a blanket and little voices saying, “shhhhhh” as they laughed, thinking they were pulling one over on me. The hilarious truth is that I was lying on a pull-out couch in the same room about eight feet away ... Read More »

But Mommm: Goodbye

Sitting on the doorstep I looked out on our lawn and driveway and saw my last eight years in one quick snapshot. Our crib was leaning up against a tree. The jogging stroller and bike trailer were parked on the lawn. Little Tikes gear littered the driveway – a car, a wagon, a water table, a climber and a desk. ... Read More »

Although you’re never fully prepared for this stuff when you have a baby, you definitely expect it. These are the ... Read More »

I had some laundry to do and one quick errand to run but told myself that we were going ... Read More »

Saying it definitely feels strange. Looking at the number on paper seems weird. Thinking about it seems unbelievable. But when it comes to how I’m ... Read More »

But Mommm: Pause

Last Friday I passed a pregnant woman walking through the pedway. Her perfectly round belly told me she was pretty close to her due date and I couldn’t help but notice how happy and content she looked. She was walking with a smile on her face in a nice summer dress with a little sweater on top. We smiled at ... Read More »

But Mommm: Full Circle

“Mom, did some police officers die?” Her question caught me off-guard as I rummaged through my purse. I looked up at the same time as another woman sitting in the waiting area at the hair salon did. I could feel both sets of eyes – my daughter’s and the woman’s – fixed on me as I opened my mouth to ... Read More »
