Humbled

I recently had one of my most humbling moments as a mother.  After receiving a not-so-lovely report about our almost 4-year old son’s behavior in Bible class, I encouraged him…

After a long and wearying day of traveling with our three children (6, 4, and 2), we were anxiously waiting to disembark at our final destination. I couldn’t have been more ready…

Don’t know about you, but Liz Sanchez’ December 2010 post, “Take The Pretty Nightie Challenge,” may be the most talked about MomLife Today post in the Gresh house. Take it from a woman whose husband accuses her of being a hoodie-aholic (but only at bedtime), it’s a good thing to consider the concept of putting on something pretty now and then despite the fact that you’re sure you’ll freeze to death. (I took Liz’s challenge and wore something pretty to bed for a month and I did not freeze to death. I am, in fact, still alive!) The Pretty Nightie Challenge certainly ignited a few confessional conversations amongst me and my girlfriends. I might have even bought and shipped a somewhat pretty nightie to one of my fellow MomLife Today bloggers. (She shall remain nameless.)

Training Requires Repetition

As a mom, I often find myself repeating things over and over and over again: “Please don’t whine. Ask politely instead.” “You must pick up your room before you can…

Camaraderie on Aisle 3

I heard her kids before I even saw them.  I was pushing my grocery cart through a busy back section of our grocery store when I heard two kids arguing…
