I’m starting a new page to record some reflections I have from time to time. They can be parenting related, content related, work-life related, whatever. Just some little tidbits that might prove helpful, funny, insightful, or even just crazy. Feel free to join me in the conversation!

February 6, 2020 – I’m going to start off with sharing how grateful I am that my jobs allow me such flexibility to be home when I need to be home. I do have to be gone 12 hours one day per week to make that work (yes, I do work other days), but I love that I can pick my children up from school and be there to support them for their school events, when I don’t have rehearsals. I think it’s that flexibility that helps me keep my life in balance.

February 9, 2020 – One of my favorite accomplishments this week was turning my son’s grumpy mood into a more cheerful mood by listing 3 things for which we are grateful.

February 11, 2020 – When you coach your kids on life skills and respectful negotiation (even at a young age), it’s incredibly rewarding to listen to them use those skills while they play and avoiding nasty bickering!
