Curiouser and Curiouser

Ten years ago I had no idea what it meant to be a parent. There I was in my effervescent maternal glow, ready to burst at the seams pregnant with AJ. All the glory and radiance of impending motherhood around me and no clue whatsoever what lay ahead. How could anyone possibly? Motherhood, birth and…

With Every Breath

I was really looking forward to AJ’s First Holy Communion. It was going to be a very special event in his life and an event that would bring the family all together. Right from the beginning I did not want this celebration to get the better of me. I can often get caught up in…

Conversations with Disappointment

If there was one thing she knew about herself, with absolute certainty, it was that disappointment marked the end. Not the end of all things. Not the end of family holidays in the sun.

A charm bracelet, a boy, and my beliefs questioned

I have a thing for charm bracelets lately – and by ‘thing’ I mean I obsess over them. It is impossible to live in our house and not be caught up in a conversation about these charm bracelets. So when my nine-year-old son asked me for a charm bracelet of his own I wasn’t surprised…

Don’t Bet Against Yourself

Social media: one stop shop for photo stalking, exercise validation, cooking videos, cat meme’s and inspirational quotes. There are so many inspirational quotes that many defeat their own purpose.
