We slept late for our day off on Veteran’s Day. The sun awoke us through the window, trickling in through the blinds and curtains, and we felt the warmth from it almost immediately.

Kids Sleep Anywhere: The Field Day Edition

My seven-year-old, Super M, had his school’s “field day” yesterday.

My Kids Sleep Weird. Period.

I swear, I don’t know how my children sleep in these strange ways. Especially my toddler, who is a force to be reckoned with in the sleep department. Rivaling my kindergartner, even.

Our four-year-old was a little restless the other night. My husband and I were cleaning up after dinner, preparing for the next day, and we went to check on him in the living room and he wasn’t there, asleep, as we expected. He wasn’t in the kitchen/dining room with us. So my husband rounded the [...]

I remember straightening up around me, primping while fidgeting, my hands barely able to clasp the towels, or the shifted makeup. I almost dropped the compact. A broken mirror would’ve been horrible, to say the least. What would that have meant? It took all of me not to look it’s way. It sat there, taunting [...]
