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 »

But Mommm: Equality

After a particularly rough day last week, I decided to take our three-year-old out and do something special with him. We grabbed a smoothie and as a treat, I took him to the toy store to pick something special out. He chose a little airport set with a small plane, helicopter and baggage vehicles. We brought it home and spent ... Read More »

But Mommm: Truth

Our son has a peanut allergy. This will come as no surprise to those who have been reading this blog for the last few years as you’ve already seen me write about it a few times. Whenever I mention his allergy to other parents they always ask me how we found out. For both of his sisters we waited until ... Read More »

But Mommm: Being Mom

After an incredible day of hearing how much my kids love me, I couldn’t help but take a few minutes to write down ten things that I love about being a Mom: 1. The connection. I love being so connected that I can sense a mood through the way they’re walking, what they need by the look on their face ... Read More »

But Mommm: Confidence

The massive gym at Citadel High seemed to swallow her whole. The other seven Highland dancers in her group had each walked to their positions confidently – with their heads held high and their hands on their hips. I could tell it was going to be different for our daughter from the second she came around the corner. She scuffed ... Read More »

But Mommm: Generations

There’s this woman I know. I’ve known her my entire life. In fact, she was even there the moment I was born. I haven’t seen her or talked to her every single day of my life but I think about her often and feel extreme love for her (and from her) no matter where I am. This woman hasn’t had ... Read More »

But Mommm: The Menu

Pretty much everything about kids and food is driving me crazy right now. Somewhere along the line we seem to have turned off the main road onto ‘picky eater’ street and any attempt at introducing new meals to the mix is met with a turned up nose by a minimum of one child. The variation in tastes between the three ... Read More »

But Mommm: The Middle

This past weekend I went on my first real shopping trip with our oldest. She’s seven and in the past I’ve always picked out her clothes for her but lately I’ve noticed that I’m not always picking the right sizes. What used to be pretty easy now varies by store and even by style within the same store. So Saturday ... Read More »

But Mommm: Instinct

I heard the loud crash and the screaming followed within seconds. As any parent would, I dropped what I was doing and ran down the hall in the direction of the noise. My brain wasn’t registering which child it was, I just kept moving towards the sound of the cries. And then, in the very last room at the end ... Read More »
