A Life on Repeat

My head is pounding. My neck is stiff. And, my eyes are cursing at me, wondering why I am on the computer.

But here I am. I haven’t written in months (cue the record player to repeat). I feel as though I am accomplishing nothing within my life. So, I figured if I wrote then I could pat myself on the back.

I don’t know who I am anymore. Yes, a mother and a wife. But, is it bad to say I am tired of being a stay at home tumblr_m3mlscI1UN1ru4trao1_500mom? Read More »

Winter Car Seat Safety

Sara Green

The time has come or is slowly approaching that we must bundle up our children to face the cold outside.

While it’s important to keep our children wrapped up and warm to bear the cold, it’s very important to properly keep them secure in their car seats.

Bulky coats are not safe to wear while buckled in a car seat.

The reason why bulky coats are not safe is due to the fact that it prevents the harness from properly fitting. The harness becomes to loose and can prevent from protecting our children properly during a crash and can even lead to ejection.

Suicide.
It approaches like a deceiving warm hug.
It presents the cure to twisted ideas of darkness.
It transforms into an ally.
It becomes the only victory with claiming.
It is the end of you.

Hush, Hush Annoying One

Parenting a child who is vastly different from you is exhausting.

The days of sitting outside for hours, listening to my thoughts are gone.
The days of taking a bubble bath with the candles lit are no where to be found.
The days of watching a movie in silence are in the past.
The days of painting my toenails and singing along with one song from start to finish disappeared like Ja Rule’s raps.
The days of buying groceries without interruptions are only dreams that haunt me at night.

My son. He is mine but not like me. He requires attention. A lot. His mind races with words that fall out of his mouth without a filter. He is up at the ass crack of down and fights like a champion when the sun goes to bed. His hands are always on the move. His lips are even faster.
