Triggers. They’re everywhere now.

42 Days of  Teresa- day 12 I have seen so many articles, Facebook feeds, posts and conversations around the use of warning people about trigger warnings. Has it gone too far?  I put trigger warnings on many of my posts to help those that are here to make a choice of self awareness.  I don’t […]

I stopped caring about what you think

42 days of Teresa – day 5 I grew up in a household where everything was about how it looked.  The house was to be kept in a way that people could arrive at any moment and all would be presentable, because “what would people think?”  Even our play clothes were always in good repair, […]

Every Mom is a full-time Mom

I often describe myself as a full-time stay at home mom of two boys.  It’s an accurate description.

How will my kids Learn Independence?

I often hear the argument from my kids that sounds something like this, “I can do it myself!” When things are busy and they’re playing or distracted, I don’t hesitate to say something like, “you made the mess so you can clean it up.” or “do it yourself, you’re a big boy.”  So, how about […]
