    Sometimes we choose to be single moms; sometimes the status is thrust upon us. We face the reality that, for however long the status remains, this is our life.

    So, I decided it was time to throw my toddler into the pool. In Houston, pools are everywhere; it seemed like a good idea to teach some pool safety and strategies. Also, all signs pointed go and that the timing was right for M’s first class: Bath time was basically a swim session where more water lands out of the […]

    So I am on my way to work happily curled up in the back row on the bus hazily daydreaming as I gaze out of the window.  The sun is shining, my coffee is finally kicking in, and every 10th person that passes my bus is staring at their phone instead of the freeway in […]

    When I think of a sports mom, I envision a mom in a baseball cap, capris, Keds without socks, and an oversized baseball shirt. It doesn’t matter that my son has played one year of basketball, two years of soccer, one year of contact football, four years of t-ball, and is now starting his first year of […]

    We live in a master planned community with parks, playgrounds, and pools galore. We have our own elementary, middle, and high school, and I always compare our life to an episode of “Leave It To Beaver.” I walk across the street for eggs, and my neighbors know the alarm code to my house so they can let […]
