How can you teach your child(ren) who they are, if you have no clue who you are? A question I struggled with answering since separation from my child's father. As shared before, being alone is something I never had to experience. From teen-adulthood I formed an identity around my relationship further losing sight of a… Continue reading 24
Kids or sponges?
Have you ever taken the time to try to re-learn your child? Maybe not, because it is not often that you are given enough space to even think about re-learning them, but maybe it is time to start creating that space.

You "know" this because you will raise them different than other parents. Although, I do believe there are things that you as a… Continue reading So, Terrible Twos Really Are A Thing?

How ironic. For lack of better terms the last year has been, eh, scary. Life has felt like it's been… Continue reading 11 Months Later
