Still, Small Voice

I am so loud. I yell more often than I would like to admit. I yell to get my toddlers to get their act together. I yell to get my point across in a disagreement with my husband. I'm a yeller.

Two Paths to Discipline

It's a cold, icy February morning here. So cold and icy we had to turn our car around and head back home after a failed attempt to head to Mom's group.

Anxious Mama

I'm discovering that I hate media. Seriously can I just parouse Facebook without reading about how so and so went on a family vacation and their 3 year old drowned while they were eating a brownie?
