I’m a Rosie

I have a daughter named Rose, and I have gained something indispensable from her recently. I learn from all of my children continually, but this one struck home, especially in the season of life I’m in.  I find myself comparing my life to others. The larger house, the larger car,…

Grow Your Relationships, Set Down Roots

How have your relationships changed since having children? I’ve found that becoming a mother has distanced me from some people and drawn me closer to others. I had no idea how my parenting style could impact someone else’s experience and vice versa, which can also alter our opinions of each…

WAHM

Any other working-from-home moms out there? How have you been doing with balance? I find I can run myself ragged pretty quickly because I’m always doing something. There’s always something to clean, someone to change, a pile to fold, a family to feed. And that doesn’t even include any of…

If Only We Could Worry Less

The girls have a photo shoot later tonight, and I’m starting to get nervous. I’m really excited to work with the photographer, a close childhood friend, and I can’t wait to have more professional photos. I’m just not looking forward to the unknown. It’s kind of the way I feel…

Our Greatest Blessing

As hard as having kids can be, I often think about how much harder it is for women who struggle to have them. I’m still working on accepting my post baby body. I’ve tried to reframe this and be thankful I am able to have a baby body at all.…

Ask Jacque: Sex Over Sleep, My Brother’s Girlfriend, The Bachelor Boyfriend

To Sex or Not to Sex My husband complains all the time that we don’t have enough sex. Like, I think once a weekish is fair right now. We have two under two, and I’m exhausted all the time. By the end of the night, I just want a shower…

SuperMom to WorstMom

Today was the kind of day where I felt like supermom by 11am and the worst-mom-ever by 5pm. It began with a trip to preschool with all three children. My mom usually watches baby V, while I drop the girls off, but she was busy today. So I got there…
