Just another Mommy Blog!

The last year for me has been marked with career transitions.  Motherhood is a constant balancing act, no one has all the answers.  I have experienced so much happiness and peace since I made the decision to put my family first.   Parenting is the most important role that I have ever been honored to fulfill.  There is not a day that goes by that I am not grateful for the relationship that I have with my mother.  I hope that my daughters will share that sentiment with me.

Let’s form a community of supportive mothers doing our best to raise good people.  In the parent post section, I share with you the fun activities we do, the playdates that we plan and the ways we attempt to shape the minds of our littles.   I will be honest about the tough parenting times and the struggles to keep it all together because sometimes laufty plans go astray.
