Discipline, Discipline

Ugh.  I didn't think that getting a newborn to go to sleep and stay asleep would be so difficult.  Then I read books upon books about sleeping and learned thanks to Mr. Weissbluth that it is difficult to sleep AND it's a developmental thing.  Really, there is no such...

Some things never change

I remember distinctly when I was in college and the drama that surrounded my friends and me.  I personally believe that it is unnatural to stick six to seven girls in a small confined living area unless they are related by blood.  That setting spells one word and one...

…it changes everything.

I am a creature of change.  Being raise in the military, change was a natural part of life for me.  We moved every two to three years and being the "new" kid in school felt natural.  I once was a shy Kindergartener but after we moved from Edina to Grand Forks, I...

Everybody's workin' for the weekend

Betcha have that song in your head now, huh?  I was thinking last week as I experienced my first time being sick and being a full-time mommy, how mothering is really a 24/7 job.  Sure, I don't have any place to report in day in and day out.  I don't get an annual...

Keep the Candle Burning!

I bet you have the Point of Grace song in your head now... I was reading one of my favorite blogs last night in an attempt to be inspired to blog more and I loved her suggestion so much that I had to post and share! The Nester brought up a lovely point of the use of...

Where has the time gone?

I had many people tell me when Brennan was born to savor every minute because the time flies and he would grow up so fast. I have to admit that I kind of understand this. I was thinking today while Brennan was napping that in a week he will be a year old. One whole...

Staying at Home

I went to Bethel today to visit a friend who works in Admissions. It was great to walk the halls again and see people that had an impact on my life. College was hot bed of growth for me. That got me to thinking about how different I thought life would be when I was in...
