HOW TO STAY CALM THIS WEEK

HOW TO STAY CALM THIS WEEK

This week has been a crazy one (and not just for obvious reasons). Emotions are running high as unexpected things are happening all around - good and bad.

Opportunities are presenting themselves – the opportunity to breathe and get perspective, to choose love, to change, to take a risk, to stay the same.  

Children are behaving – good and bad. I am either being Fun Mom or wondering how to get through the next hour. It’s called life.

WHY MY SON’S LUNCHBOX COSTS MORE THAN MY OUTFIT

WHY MY SON’S LUNCHBOX COSTS MORE THAN MY OUTFIT

Five mornings a week a lot of us do the same thing. Sigh about packing lunch(es). Dig for containers to pack lunch. And then, finally, pack the lunch. It gets old – quickly.

I hated packing lunches mainly because I never had the right, or enough of, the right container. Dirty containers, lost lids or my husband snagging the good sandwich Tupperware, I was always digging…and annoyed by it.
