A Little Grace, Mammas

December 05, 2016

I don’t always know what to blog about.  Yesterday one of my moms asked me to write about stress during the Holidays.  I told her I didn’t know what she was talking about! What stress? . . . And then a memory of the night before flashed back to my mind; right there and then, I had to dig deep, but the more I thought about stress, the more I remembered.  I let go of my facade . . . only briefly mind you, to let in a distant memory of stress.  Shortly thereafter I put myself right back together, somewhat forcing the image of having it ALL together!  So, I will try to tell you about my brief and unbelievably rare memory of stress.

What is the Best Thing About Being a Mom?

May 08, 2016


"It is hard to put into words what I love about being a mom besides everything. I was a young woman who never wanted children . . . at least not children of my own. When I met Scott, we married quickly - one week from first kiss to engagement.  We were married three months later. Scott had two children, age 6, twins and I loved them from first sight. They were my children. Ten years after we were married and many conversations later; we joke that Scott talked me into having a child of our own. It was not something I ever wanted or thought I would really enjoy or be very good at. I thank God every day I didn’t miss this miraculous opportunity. EVERY DAY I am grateful for Keaton! He makes me laugh and fills me up with love in a way I never knew possible. He is an extension of us and I love watching him every day explore the world, become sarcastic, say things like “dude”, smile and laugh, get frustrated, be helpful and kind and the list goes on and on! It is truly the most amazing experience and I wouldn’t trade it for all the money in the world!"

A Visit from the Isle of Man: Swimming is a Life-long Sport

February 20, 2016

At a recent swim class while my daughter was in the water with her dad, I noticed a woman also watching the Parent-N-Me class in session and introduced myself. Instantly I recognized a familiar accent. Phyl was visiting her daughter’s family from the Isle of Man, and was the great-grandmother of student, 20-month-old Alfie. It is relatively rare to meet anyone from that part of the U.K. since the small island in the Irish Sea between Ireland and England only has a population of about 88,500.

The 2016 Oscars - Mom Style

January 27, 2016

I LOVE the Oscars! I love the Oscars even more than I hate post-holiday winter. Every year, I find January to be on the brutal side…like one month-long holiday hangover. I feel lost and sad after the beautiful and exhausting chaos of the previous year explodes with the New Year’s skies. I try to be inspired by grocery store magazine resolutions and fitness makeovers plastered throughout social media. But each year brings mixed results and I often still feel kinda lonely…until I hit my Oscar groove, my reason for this dreary season.
