Snowfall in Atlanta

On Friday, a winter storm warning made its promise. A heavy sprinkle of fat snowflakes descended quickly from the sky in the morning, beginning a definitive accumulation on lawns and cars and kids at bus stops in a few minutes. We were transfixed on the possibility that it could actually stick…

12 Days of Thanksgiving Break (Part 2)

When it came to the week of Thanksgiving Break, I was worried about all the wrong things. Clearly, my life is a comedy, and I should have recognized havoc steadily making its advancing approach the previous days. I thought that my children were going to express some explicit busy-ness, that they…

I’m Thankful for the Bad Things

I have pinpointed this year to be full of both personal and professional challenges. For one, determining a conscious level of work-life balance that is satisfactory continues to charge in the direction of near-impossibility, as I find myself constantly assessing small and large changes that would work…

Earth to Future Mom Me

It has been 1600+ days since the birth of my son, Jrue, signaling the official propelled junction of the motherhood journey for me. 4 years, 4 months, and 30 days ago, I spent almost 9 hours actively pursuing the birth of my son. I…

Looks Like We’re Millennial Parents

Millennials, or Generation Y’ers, are the generation vaguely marked from birth as early as 1980 until as late as 2000, though, preciseness is not standard. What is essential are the traits, habits, tendencies, and experiences the millennial generation have broadly incurred, which have proven…

Reading is Fundamental

Many years ago, my company hired a young man to work at one of our sites. This young man, perhaps 35 years old at the time, had finished his job application at home and had brought it in for his interview, during which he talked candidly…

Giveaway: VTech Sit to Stand Learning Walker Ended!

The Review  The VTech Sit to Stand Learning Walker is a moving play table that can encourage a child’s mobility. Its attached wheels roll easily over hard flooring and carpeting, though I would recommend a parent to exert caution over places their child frequents where the surfaces have transitions, such as with cracks in the sidewalk or where…

The Value of an Unlikely Partnership

I want to give it all up sometimes.   This grip, this irreversible clamp, is super-tight, cutting my circulation occasionally and making me wince and shake. I cannot move anywhere but forward through a darkness I hadn’t completely planned for, a quilted covering that I can…

My Boyfriend vs. My Husband

The hubs and I have been married since May 16, 2010. It was a warm spring Sunday, but, to avoid the sticky heat and allergy-inducing pollen of the outdoors gardens, we married at 11 a.m. in a large alcove, our guests facing massive windows…

The Ones That Got Away

When the hubs and I forecasted parenthood in its splendor and dualities, we failed to entertain the thoughts of what we’d “miss” once babies entered the picture. It wasn’t character tragedy on our parts. We simply guessed that we were ready because parenting was an intentional choice for…
