I stumbled across a super interesting thought on the internet the other day and I can’t remember where I saw it. But the question was whether or not people should be starting or growing a family when things are so questionable. There is violence, hate, intolerance, and so, so much more – pardon my French – crappy stuff going on all around the world so why would you want to bring a child into a… Read more »

Yeah, let’s face it. Everyone has to clean. In no way did I ever dream of becoming a housekeeper, and if you are annoyed by people who try to keep their house clean, this post probably isn’t going to interest you very much.  But, never the less, my #atozchallenge for day H is Housekeeping.  I don’t know when it happened, but at some point in my life I became a tad obsessed with having control… Read more »

G is for Grace in my #atozchallenge parenting requires a lot of grace and in many forms of the word.  You’ve heard people giving a “grace period” well I think the whole Parenthood is a grace period for some of us. You are learning everyday. Learning about yourself, about your spouse, about your child. Learning how to be a better parent, learning how to accept things you cannot change.  And honestly if there is one… Read more »

I know this title for my #atozchallenge – Food Fun and Farts – sounds ridiculous..Well, it is. But I cannot think of a better way to sum up my life some days.  Food…How many other people are like me in that all I think about is the next meal I am going to eat. Like, seriously, when I would work I would be sitting there at 9:30 a.m. planning out what I would have for… Read more »

Okay as a mom I think pretty much everyday about ways I can engage my kiddo in a fun way. Everything is a learning opportunity for a 1 year old and it is so fun to see him trying to figure out the way things work.  So for my #atozchallenge ABCs of a Small Town SAHM, E is about education because I pretty much think about it every day.  It might sound crazy or like… Read more »

The fourth post in my A to Zs​ of a Small Town SAHM is all about the man behind the blog. I get all the attention here but let’s face it, without my husband I would not be the woman I am today. That’s why today in the #atozchallenge I am writing all about my little one’s Daddy. I can tell you right now that I was pretty sure of what I was looking for… Read more »

Well, this whole #atozchallenge has been kind of successful in that it’s making me stop and reflect on how I spend my time each day. I know I’m only on the third letter, and I’m not exactly on schedule but…Whatever. When I was in 7th grade I decided to become a cheerleader and I embraced it through out the rest of my high school career. I learned so much about myself and about life. I… Read more »

I’m a day late posting this too, but deal with it! Day two of the A to Zs of a Small Town SAHM expresses one if the many aspects of my job that I am so in love with. Baseball. But not literally playing baseball or even watching baseball. In this case, baseball is symbolic for freedom and flexibility. Because I am not in the 9-to-5 swing, yesterday we were able to load up the… Read more »

So I told you a couple of days ago that I planned to start the #atozchallenge which started….Two days ago. So as you know that means…This post is like two days late.  That’s part of my life, now.  I went from being a journalist where deadlines were everything, to being a full-time mom and there is no such thing.  And while I’m on the topic of things not being prompt, something I used to love… Read more »

How many of you have heard of the #atozchallenge for bloggers? Basically it is a month long challenge to write blog posts that represent each letter of the alphabet throughout the month of April. I have been slacking seriously on blogging lately – I love writing and blogging, but it has taken a backseat to family, friends, self-care….Ya know, life stuff.   Needless to say I have been searching for a way to get back… Read more »
