A Voice and A Choice

Tricia, this weekend we will be spending time with a ten-year-old boy whose mom died recently.  What cues do you have for me for interacting with a heartbroken boy?  Our time together is probably meant to be a fun distraction, NOT a heart-to-heart conversation moment, but I am just curious what sort of support was […]

Grace Notes for the First Day Of School

Today marked a great big finish line for us: The First Day of School.  #BrokenFootSummer is “over,” and we have entered the broad and beautiful landscapes of third and fourth grade (new striped cast and scooter notwithstanding). Even though I am not a mom who grieves such things, I surprised myself by not doing my […]

Trust Does Not Come Quickly

Sometimes I picture myself standing on a tree stump just big enough for my two feet. In my mental image, the stump is surrounded by danger or things I’m afraid of – like I’m in the middle of a pit of snakes or a river of bubbling lava. I’m safe on the tree stump, but […]

Lone Aspen Tree

Lone Aspen Tree. She probably thinks she's the odd one, all alone out there in a sea of sameness. Little does she know, she's a light in the forest.

Why? Right, but Why?

Children are not aware of limitations.  They just figure that if there's something they don't know, it's because they haven't learned it yet. "Why's the sun round?" "Because there's a big fire at the center, and as it moves outward, it cools equally." "Why?" "Because heat cools at a standard rate." "Why?" "Uh… because…" Children […]

Side by Side

Tucker carries Maxwell to me at least six times a day.  Wherever I am in the house, Tuck appears.  With Max. "Mommy, he wants to sit with you." "He wants to be near you." "He wants to know where you are." "Mommy, Max will sit safely on your lap.  He'll be very quiet." "He was […]

Minutes. Hours. Days. Years.

One hour in a coffee shop can fly by so fast I cannot catch it.   One hour of getting my children out the door, to school, and ready for the day, is simultaneously forever long and way too fast and we can't get it all done but I don't want to add any more […]

Hellos and Goodbyes

I bought a new pair of shoes for Tuck.  He loves them.  They'll carry him swiftly down the soccer field on many a Saturday morning this spring. And the next day, we argued because the morning routine was snagged on an unpacked lunchbox and backpack and silliness and lateness. In a quieter moment, we made […]

Strolling the Grocery Store

I was grocery shopping with two boys. You know. My favorite. The usual acrobatic routine of the wrestling brothers, the tipping cart, the try to remember the list, the race to the finish. We turned a corner to find our neighbor, Miss Jenny. She was making the rounds herself, although she was flying solo. Her […]
