Why You Shouldn’t Ask, “Who Had It First?”

Sharing is hard! From the earliest years, my children have struggled with the concept, and lately I’ve learned that I’m asking the wrong questions when I do try to resolve some of the arguments. (Occasionally I try to let them sort it out, but we are still in early years yet). I’ve learned not to ask, “Now, who had it first?” And give it to the child who claimed this title of “first.” Why?

Encouragement: A Movement

Mummy Confession: I have bad days. Bad weeks even. I often get discouraged.   As a parent and a human being, I am subject to doubting my worth, questioning my purpose, and flooding my mind with useless and negative thoughts.

My Laundry Room: The Vortex of Doom

Mummy Confession: This is my Laundry Room. The never ending vortex of doom. It just keeps piling up. The job that’s never done. And it’s funny. All of the kids are sick now, plus one teething (ie “don’t you dare put me down or leave me alone, and you can forget about an easy sleep.”) and one toilet training (ie. “I’m big and I won’t thoroughly soak my bed linens every night…”). This means the laundry is constantly piling up and never-ending. As a matter of fact, just after waking this morning, my baby coughed quite a bit and then Read More
