Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Nothing hurts quite as much as the breakup of a long-term relationship. This is the person who knows more about you than anyone else. This is the person you’ve trusted and loved. This is the person who’s seen you at your best and your worst, still sticking around– until the day they didn’t.

Spring Projects

Spring is here. Trees are budding. Flowers are blooming. Birds are singing. And, I have a renewed dedication to making things look amazing. It happens every year. I get this burst of energy and decide that we’re going to get all those unfinished projects completed, all the while taking on about a dozen more.

Power Struggles

He was about two years old. Turning to my right, I could see my oldest child standing on the staircase. She was about 16 years old.

Baby Steps

You’d think that by the time I got to my 19th child, I’d be over the proud mama moments. I’ve seen babies walk and I’ve heard them talk. I’ve received a million baby kisses and have cleaned the face of more than one sauce-covered toddler. I have baby pictures everywhere in our home, showing our kids doing rather normal baby-type things. But, I’m still head over heels with babies.

You Are Not Alone

If you’re the parent of a foster or adopted child who has behavior issues, you may (or may not) have heard the term Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). Let Google help you find where to look online for information about RAD and how it impacts children and adults who have lived through abuse, particularly abuse that occurs at an early age. Sometimes, these kids are referred to as RADishes; an attempt to add some levity to what can be a difficult life to live, both for the child and his or her parents.
