I know I’m not the only mom who bursts into tears every time I watch the "Surface Pressure" scene in Encanto. It’s all too relatable, right? Luisa sings, “I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service,”...
We are done. No more training wheels. A few teeth to lose, sure, but even the trucks and Disney princesses don’t really hold their interest anymore. Now we are onto baseball, Instagram, and nail polish. There is so much...
I didn’t know what to expect when I dropped my 11-year-old off at his first sleepaway camp. He, his cousin, and four soccer teammates spent a week away with zero communication back home. Not a text, call, email, or...
Sadly, I just read an article about an 8-year-old who died after getting stuck between a washing machine and a dryer while playing hide-and-seek. It really made me pause since we recently had a few scares of our own. A...

I'm in the "middle years" of parenting. Somehow, I got here without even blinking. I went very quickly from two in diapers, to two in preschool, to two in elementary school, and now with one clinging to elementary school...
