One more week down! We’ve had about a 30 degree temperature drop around here this week, so it’s finally starting to feel a bit like Fall, at least for a day or two.

Dude Mom explains what I feel about all the negative about parenting. “This whole let’s be honest about what mothering is seems to have turned into something that is less about honesty and more about just trying to be the person who can say the most horrifying things about being a mother. Like a competition to see whose family appreciates them the least and sucks the hardest.” Read I’m Sorry Motherhood is the Worst.
My kids are involved in multiple sports, not because we have some delusions of them becoming professional athletes, but because they want to participate and because they’re learning valuable lessons. Strongest Mom explains High Performance Kids Are Accountable.
The thought of losing a spouse is terrifying. “This week I am terrified at the idea of living in a world where I do not have him to fall back into when I am pushed to the point of collapse. And I am pushed to collapse now.” Lea shares I Am Afraid of Being Alone.
“Today I’m going to remember all the times we shared. All the times we laughed. Because there was always laughter. Even when there was pain there was always laughter.” A powerful remembrance: Today, I Will Remember The Times We Used To Share
