Ten Minutes: Yesterday…

Yesterday morning at 9am I heard a scream come out of my 5 year old that I had never heard before.  My husband and I were still laying in bed, but I went flying down the stairs.  Blood was just gushing down Noah’s head.  I immediately scooped him in my arms, cradled him like a […]

Ten Minutes to DREAM

What Works For Me: When the Kids are at Their Other Homes

For just over 6 years now I have had to figure out how to best deal with life when my kids aren’t with me.  It used to be very, very hard for me.  When they aren’t with me, that means that I don’t have control.  Not having control isn’t something I am naturally comfortable with. […]
