ASK JACQUE: More Kids, Non-Mom Friends, and Sex & Cleaning

More Kids? No Way. My husband wants more kids, and I’m totally done. Two is enough for me. I know there are some large families out there, and they love it. I am not one of them. My husband comes from a big family, and he has been begging me…

Trying New Things

Ever feel like you’ve missed the boat on some things? Do you tell yourself that you’re too old or too busy to try something new? I have, plenty of times. The thing is, when I actually push myself past the anxiety of trying something new, I find that the task…

A Taste of Gratitude

I had an interesting experience today, a humbling experience, one full of growth and gratitude. We eat a lot of fresh produce in our house, which is wonderful for our health, but it has had an impact on our wallet. With baby V eating more solids, and the girls getting…

Enjoy Today and Leave Tomorrow Alone

Today is a day where smiling and breathing come easy. I’ve had a very rough time with my toddlers for about a year, and the closer they get to three, the more I’m loving being a mom. They’re beginning to listen a little better, which means we can do more…
