Momming Monday: The Reading Mom

As a mom, there’s a lot of reading in my life. Not for pleasure, but for schoolwork, for research, for any number of things, many of which revolve around lighting that fire under my kids so that they develop a love of reading that, at least for me, was probably...

Momming Monday: Groovy

I’ve said before that being a stay at home parent is the closest thing to a rarefied Edwardian society as you can get in yoga pants. We have our own rhythms, behaviors, habits, and quirks when grouping up or just roaming around the errand list on our own, and...
Momming Monday: When The Tank Is Low

Momming Monday: When The Tank Is Low

Okay, I’ve had three false starts to today’s blog. I’m supposed to be good with the wording, but today, the braining makes the nugget hurt. We had family in from across the country and it was a wonderful–if exhausting–month of high family...

Momming Monday: The Quest For Control

Momming Monday: Bug-Bit

Momming Monday: Bug-Bit

A weekend campfire is a great way to unwind with family and friends in a relaxed, natural setting. It’s also a great way to experience what it feels like to be an all-you-can-eat buffet. Fire, people, and warm humidity attract the bugs like nobody’s...

Momming Monday: Time Is A River

I got the idea for this blog because we’ve been re-watching Star Trek: The Next Generation, and introducing the kids to one of the seminal entertainment series of our own youth. I could go on for days about the Star Trek phenomenon, its worldview on the future,...
Momming Monday: Nuclear Mom

Momming Monday: Nuclear Mom

Mondays are my days where I usually blog about some aspect of parenting while working from home. Especially in a creative industry like writing, it can be incredibly hard to carve out respect for your work time, carve out worth to your value, and carve out your very...
