Things we do for our children

I was trying to think about what to write this morning.  Thoughts were going through my head.  One of those thoughts was that I am going to Chuck e Cheese later with my six year old for a birthday party!!  That made me think…oh the things that we do for our children. I wrote earlier […]

What We Love #Thisis38

My Devotion this morning finished with this questions.  What is it that God made you to love?? The answer to that is children.  Mine, of course.  Then my niece’s, nephew’s and friend’s children.  I have had multiple jobs where children were the center of my work.  Working at 2 child care centers, being the children’s […]

Our Christmas Eve #Thisis38

When you have a blended family you have to make traditions that work for you.  In this family our Christmas Eve and Christmas day happen only when the 6 kids are in our home. The younger ones who still believe in the magic of Santa, will also choose to believe that Santa understands our family […]

Co-Parenting #Thisis38

My Timehop this morning is the inspiration for this post. Maybe what we decided to do on this day 8 years ago was setting us on the right path!  The path of respectful co-parenting.  Co-parenting done right.  The kind of co-parenting where we get compliments and kudos all the time. Maybe this, this right here […]

Charisma

The theme of my Yoga practice this morning was Charisma. The first thing that Adriene said this morning was that we were getting down to “Brass Tacks” which means to get down to the basics or the essentials. Adriene wanted to take us back to what it felt like to be a child.  To remember […]

Ten Minutes to DREAM

What dream is in your heart that you haven’t seen God do for you yet? There are a lot of dreams on my heart right now.  Things that I have been talking to God about, been brave enough to talk to God about since the first of the year. I have often thought, I am […]

Our 6 children

My family, my husband and these kids are what it is all about! When people say that I don’t really have six kids, it really pisses me off.  Ignorance is bliss perhaps under this circumstance.  People who say that, aren’t capable of unders… Source: Our 6 children
