Calm. Steady. Sure.

I sat in a waiting room today. I sat there with my oldest as he tried to chew up a blue gumball. He hasn’t ever had one before and actually asked me how to eat it. Of course, the thing was so big that it was hard for him to chew it. I encouraged him…

Storyteller – The Real Thing.

STORY TIME : A Drunken Proposal. Allison.     Once upon a time, there lived a young girl – 19 years old and freshly dropped out of college. She was working as a cashier at a sporting goods store and had recently dumped the latest of her whirlwind relationships with self-centered, controlling boyfriends. She was…

Storyteller.

    As I was sitting in my chair, window open beside me and the last little bit of coffee cooling in my mug, I began writing out a post. Then I deleted the entire thing. I started again…and again…and again. Each time I started, I knew where I wanted to go and what I…

NOPE. (Part One)

I’m running a little behind this morning. We took our kids to the local High School for an egg hunt. So far, the best one we’ve participated in, I think. The kids had fun, got a little bit of candy and Jack won a prize! (( a tiny fluffy white rabbit I’m pretty sure I’ve…

Tossing The Scale.

I don’t own a scale. I had one once, about 5 years ago. I used it so often during that time, as I had nothing better to do. I was home with my 18 month old son in a city I knew nothing about in a home we had bought only a few months before….

Grace.

Before I became a parent, I said a lot of stupid things. I was ignorant, simply because I had zero experience with children – babies, especially. My son was the first newborn baby I had ever held IN MY LIFE. #perfectparentmaterial *** Here, play along with me… Imagine you’re holding a tiny, brand new infant….

Momming.

I have three kids. I am currently pregnant with my fourth. ** Insert your arsenal of hilarious pregnancy jokes HERE. Like how my Husband and I obviously have no idea how birth control works. OH, and about how we need to add a few more so we can man a full court…HILARIOUS…really… ** Also, before…

Churched.

I am not everyone’s cup of tea, as some might say. I prefer coffee, anyway. With plenty of sugar. I mean, I consider myself an adult but I am nowhere near adult enough for straight black coffee. But some people don’t even like coffee. And the thought of me desecrating a perfectly good cup of…

Oceans.

I read once about a person who died. I don’t know if they were a man or a woman, but they were in their mid-sixties. They had been married and divorced. They never parented any children and their dog left with their spouse. This person had a degree in education and had worked as a…

Starting Over.

Here is my new blog. I hope you like it. The look of it, the feel of it…overall I just hope this doesn’t suck. I’ve put a lot of thought into this one, this whole new project. It’s really like I am channeling my inner purpose and passion into one, online work of wordy art…on…
