What I Want My Kids to Know About Life

“There are going to be times when people aren’t always nice to you.” The words flowed out of my mouth matter of factly and without much pre-thought. My four year olds face crumpled up and she looked at me with watery eyes. “What do you mean, Mom? WHO won’t be nice?” Oh, to be four […]

Love Like a Mother

Lately I’ve been viewing the world through jaded eyes. I’ve been feeling at a loss about all the events going on in our country.

The Day We Were Followed

It was a beautiful, crisp fall morning here in Madison… quite possibly the last beautiful day until March! I had a list with about a million things to do so I sent my kids to the park with our nanny. I work from home, so I have a nanny who comes by a couple days a […]

Senseless Violence in America

This morning I woke up to the sound of my 18 month old crying.
