As moms we are faced with making a plethora of decisions for ourselves and our families on a daily basis. These decisions are both big and small! They may be about our career, our children’s education and extra-curricular activities, the foods we feed our little ones, the support networks we choose, and many more.
She gets home from school an hour before her elementary-aged siblings and I wanted to really make the most of those precious minutes with just her. I knew I had to be intentional without grilling her for details. She’s an introvert at heart and after a full day with people, I knew I had to […]
Personally my weekdays consist of early mornings, teaching high schoolers, getting dinner on the table, playing with my kiddos before bedtime, grading papers until just before my carriage turns into a pumpkin, and putting in all-nighters with a sleep-striking baby.
