My Anxiety Doesn’t Allow Me to Stop

Chores, Control, & Toddlers: Learning to Trust God in the Process

Do you have control issues? I know I do, especially when it comes to things done around the house. If we had a dishwasher, I'd want my husband to load it a certain way.

Potty Training Day 3

We started potty training my 2 year old on Monday. And to say it has been a breeze would be a lie. We aren't doing any of the 3 day methods, though I love the idea. But our friends that we are currently staying with probably wouldn't be a fan of accidents on their nice… Continue reading Potty Training Day 3

I’m Glad You are Two

Having a two year old feels like I'm living real-time in a "No, David" book sometimes. You know those books, where David gets into a ton of trouble, but at the end of the day, he loves his mom and his mom can't help but wrap him in a big hug. Yea, that's my kid;… Continue reading I’m Glad You are Two
