After a Woman Was Left in a Coma by a Drunk Driver, I Became Her BFF: She’ll Never Know & I’d Still Do It All Over Again

I am, because I feel like it, including this product information into this very personal story I’m about to share with you. This is the first time I’ve ever written about this, and my memories of so many shattered lives. After […]

The Middle School Bully Is Trying to Fight Pedro

 The Middle School Bully Is Trying to Fight Pedro When Pedro was younger, I used to worry that he would be bullied. He is in the lower portion of the 25th percentile. He’s tiny compared to other almost twelve-year-olds. Even his five-year-old sister, Kaitlyn, is almost as tall as him. Of course, she is very tall for […]

I Might Not Be A Real Super Hero, But I’m Pedro’s Hero: En Español w/ English Translation *Tearjerker*

When asked to write about his hero, Pedro chose me; mom! Like most moms, there are days where I can’t get a grasp on all the #momfails I manage in a 24-hour period.  Despite my best intentions, everything goes wrong, no one gets enough attention, and I’m left feeling like I wish I could get a do-over […]

Our Day Trip To San Francisco: A Photo Journal – Bridges, Treasure Island, Battery Mendel

There are plenty of ways to enjoy the day, for people with […]

We Had A No Birthday Party Celebration: I’m Still A Good Mom

I’ve been thinking about the triplet’s 5th birthday,  pretty much since they were born.  For whatever reason, I had decided that five-years-old is the magic birthday.  I was sure it was the age they’d first really understand the significance of having a birthday, especially a party, with all the extras! The birthday party I imagined was […]
