The List...

Suddenly single...that should be the name of a book or a reality show, a dramedy, for sure.  Being single again is a trip, especially when it's unexpected and not by choice.  I can honestly say that I could not relate to my divorced friends until I joined the ranks of the single moms.  I have new respect for single parents and "midlife" daters.  My then-husband died tragically and unexpectedly (story to follow someday when I feel I can share those crazy details).  ...more

Confidence. Got It?

I am not a confident person.  At all.I used to be.  And then I had Maeve.The confidence I thought I had left me the moment I stepped into the delivery room.  Shortly after I had her, I lost my mind.  No, really, I lost it.  I've written about it, but have yet to share it.  I like to think that one day I will.  But for now I'll leave it simple and give the ol' textbook answer, "After having my baby, I learned I cannot control the universe."  ...more

Raising a Confident Daughter

One of my main goals as a mother is to teach E to be confident in who she is.  I don’t want her to feel that she has to change for anyone or alter herself at all.  I want her to know and believe that she was born perfect.  I don’t want her to only have value in what she looks like on the outside, but to value what is on the inside as well....more
