Will They Sleep?

There are two times of year that I absolutely detest. I used to not care as a child, but as a parent, Daylight Savings has become the dreaded behavioral shift in my household. Maybe if I didn’t have twins, it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but getting the girls…

A New Friend

I had a mommy play date today! I’ve only had a couple of those since becoming a mom, but I have yearned for them for much longer. In my twenties, I thought motherhood was lunch dates and park meet ups, and I couldn’t wait to bond with other mommies. But…

The Most Difficult Year of my Life

I feel as if I am walking out of the most difficult year of my life. I’m sure there are more hardships that will come my way, but I have never had my mental, physical, and spiritual health tested like I did this year. I have never experienced self-doubt or…

Which Parenting Style is the Right Way?

I’ve been hearing from several different influencers about their perspectives on parenting: dos, don’ts, things to avoid, things to accept, things to just drink wine about. I find it interesting that each person has different rules and reasons for implementing specific parenting techniques, but all of these parents swear by…

Tips for Escaping the DMV Unscathed

I have this theory that the DMV is really the tenth circle of hell. I have never gotten out of there in less than three hours. While I wait in those plush plastic chairs, I spend all of my time perseverating over the essential document list in my head, terrified…

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…
