2014 is winding down. One week from today, it will be Christmas Eve!
This will be the last Pour Your Heart Out post until January 7th because I know you’ll be busy celebrating the holidays! If you write something during that time that you’d like to link up, feel free to link it in the New Year!
For now, I’ll leave you with some Pour Your Heart Outs that I wrote this year that you may have missed! And if you didn’t have time to write something new this week, feel free to link one of your favorite posts from the past year!
I Stopped Yelling at My Kids and Now They are Better Listeners One of my 2014 resolutions was to stop yelling at my kids(not to stop disciplining them, but to refrain from screaming my head off). It worked wonders with my boys.

What I Need the Extroverts in My Life to Understand I’m not trying to be rude, I promise. It’s just how I am. I wonder if I could print this one out and hand it out during the busy and crowded holiday season.
This Is Our Autism Autism can look so different from child to child. This is what it’s like in our house.
Rethinking Innocent Kisses Why I don’t think we should just think it’s cute when a little girl is chasing a boy around, trying to kiss him.
Moms, Stop Saying This About Math Some of the “new math” is a pain, but please watch your words. Our kids can hear us.
Not the Anniversary Post You’d Expect We’re going on 12 years of marriage but I can’t be a Bridget Jones Smug Married because marriage is hard work.
Two Tales of the Same Day When you judge just based on what you see on social media, you aren’t getting the full story.
