The Hidden Side of Forgiveness

The Hidden Side of Forgiveness

In mommy life, how often do we hear “Mommy, will you forgive me?” during the course of a week? If I’m training my children to recognize their faults and practice humility, I will hopefully hear this phrase at least a few times a week. Days get busy, children disobey, attitudes flare up and mommies can get frustrated too. I often have to ask my kids for forgiveness for my own attitude. It’s important for us moms to teach our kids by example how to deal with their emotions, identify their wrongs and seek forgiveness to make their relationships right again. But how can we effectively do this?

How to Be Real In Your Friendships

How to Be Real In Your Friendships

I’ve been thinking about whether I’m “real” in my friendships. I suspect what you are thinking, can moms in the midst of parenting young children have deep friendships? I know because I’ve asked myself the same question. At the end of the day when the house is semi-clean, dishes are done, and kids are hopefully in bed, I often haven’t seen or talked to anyone other than my busy family. I’ve found it helpful to make a “Check List” to pursue quality friendships and be open in a way that lets me get to know who other moms are.

My Hospital Bag Checklist

My Hospital Bag Checklist

With just 2 weeks left until my due date things are getting a little crazy around here. We’ve already had one false alarm where we thought maybe Baby Girl was coming a little too early. Thankfully she’s stayed put a while longer but the false alarm (and the fact that my first baby came fast and early) made me realize I really need to get things in gear and be prepared! I’m so relieved to have my baby girl’s nursery completely finished and ready to welcome her home but now I need to get myself and my hospital bags ready to dash out the door if necessary. With my first baby I definitively over packed so this time around I’ve scaled it down to the things I really will use and yet I like to be well prepared so I didn’t go completely minimalist. Here’s a look at what I have in my ready-to-go hospital bag the second time around and some tips for packing a hospital bag for yourself.

If you have young children, you know all about the wide range of emotions that can arise throughout the day. Children look to their closest examples to learn how to respond to circumstances.

Here are some tips I use to navigate life with kids and respond to their emotions.
