But Mommm: 5 things…

by Sarah W of Urban Parent As I make list upon list of things that need to be done, baked, purchased and more during this busy time of year, I thought it would be fun to make a different kind of list for a change – like, 5 things I love about being a mother.  Only 5 you say?  Sure, ... Read More »

But Mommm: Being Away

After surviving a week long vacation without the kids recently, I couldn’t help but re-post this blog from our archives! I openly admit that I’m not a fan of being away from my kids for too long.  Don’t get me wrong, there’s definitely more than a few times that I’ve counted the minutes until they are asleep or purposely tucked ...

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

But Mommm: Over-Analysis

There are times when I just have to laugh at the conversations that go on inside my head. Our oldest daughter had a swim meet in Lunenburg yesterday and my husband took her while I stayed home with our two youngest. I had some laundry to do and one quick errand to run but told myself that we were going ... Read More »

But Mommm: Forty

It’s a big week for me – in a few days I’ll be hitting my next decade and turning 40. Truthfully, I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to feel about this milestone birthday. 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 »
