    Good Enough Mom

    There is an Eric Carle board book about a little girl who asks “Papa, can you get the moon for me?” And her father gets a ladder. When my boys were little, I read this to them.

To never disappoint them or make mistakes. To hang the moon. And also to know, while we can’t hang the moon, we can revel in its beauty. We can enjoy it. And we can parent beautifully all the while making mistakes. We are human. I am human. READ MORE

    Daddy said zero about days like this. You know, the ones that take a couple of days to get over & lots of sleep? Ahhh sleep, that thing I used to do before I had children. I miss it.

    10 Things I Am Thankful For

    Yes, there is Christmas and Hanukkah.

    So sparkly.
