Continuously Surprised


My Darling Hunter, One day you will understand why weekends can cause anxiety for your parents. Having a toddler who is mobile and on the go all the time can be challenging. Add to this that your parents partied like rock stars on Friday night and you can imagine the amount of prayer that went…

For your Son


A friend of mine sent these little steps through the other day, and I found them so moving that I thought I would share them with you. TWENTY THINGS A MOM SHOULD TELL HER SON 1.

My little cleaning Monster

Under the weather
