She sits alone Tapping her shoe The quiet noise That no knew No one knows A thing about her They think they do But they doubt her Masking her fidget Squirming subtle Silent contents Inner struggle A slight smile Loss of thought Such a trial! And still not caught… And yet again She taps her… Read More Quiet. Noise.
Patiently impatient Pacing back and forth Sneakers tapping the pavement Silent knock on the door Swollen lips Bit down to bloody bits Finger tips Calloused from lack of quit Reaching for water Driven by madness Preventable thirst Alone surround by it They don’t know Never will This secret, this pill I can’t swallow beyond the… Read More An ode to my ever so demanding anxiety…
It has been brought to my attention, over and over and over again (thanks to my two sweet little boogers), that tomorrow is my birthday. Somehow, as the day has gotten closer, I’ve managed to repeatedly let it slip my mind. These kids won’t let me forget though….no matter how hard I try. “Tomorrow is… Read More Parties, presents, cake! (Just kidding you’re over 30)
What makes you happy? Stop for a minute and think about it. It should be an easy answer. Simple. It’s different for everyone, but still, it shouldn’t be difficult. Why is it taking you so long to answer such an elementary question? C’mon- WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?? I bet when you were a child, you… Read More Life behind invisible bars…
6:30 am. My phone plays a gentle melody to softly jostle me out of my sleep that only recently has been achieved 20 minutes earlier (due to dog 1 of 3, puking all over our bedroom). Snooze button activated. Time to mentally prepare myself for the second alarm that will sound in only 30 short… Read More Mornings and tiny ninjas.
GET ready, parents. It’s coming… Check the title. People with small humans will be able to deduce exactly what I’m referring to….oh yeah. HALLOWEEN. (Insert evil laugh). In a few short weeks your children will be running around in costumes (most of them way over priced and lacking quality), asking strangers for candy. It’s the… Read More Candy, nightmares, and insomnia..
I’m stubborn. It’s really strange actually. I’m quite insecure a lot of the time (courtesy of my persistent nagging anxiety), yet other times I’m overly confident. I have no explanation for this. I think being stubborn is my saving grace. During those times of doubt, there’s always that voice in the back of my head… Read More Chopped. (DIY Hair edition)
Just came across this picture on my phone today. I made alphabet flash cards for my 4 year old super hero enthusiast about a month ago. It was a true test of my artistic abilities (or lack thereof). Just an idea for those with kids that might not be excited about flash cards, but have… Read More Superhero flash cards
If dogs could talk. This was once my daughter’s playhouse. She has since been evicted by ….our German Shepherds. It all started 2 years ago when Dozer graced us with his presence. He was a sweet cuddly little pup-only 9 weeks old, and we were smitten. Little did we know, that he would grow… Read More “You mad, bro?”
This is a continuation to DIY….Do I dare?? (What have I gotten myself into….) Those that have read my original post, Thank you! You might remember my failed attempt at hand painting the dresser knobs. I was going back and forth, trying to figure out what to do with the knobs. I’m pretty stubborn, and was convinced… Read More DIY… Do I dare part 2
