When you hear about a bully at your child’s school, what’s your reaction? When you see another headline of hurt somewhere across the country, how do you feel? When a friend tells you about an unkindness that happened because of gender, a special need, family background, or even the neighborhood she lives in how do you respond?

When your kids are running around the house, you’ve probably spent time wondering how to get their energy out in a fun and engaging way. Instead of sending them outside to play, consider taking them on a date! A fun outing that both you and your little one will enjoy is a great way to keep them entertained, but they also provide special quality time for you to bond with your child. For parents with more than one child, it is important to spend time individually with them so they feel loved and appreciated, and it will help you build even stronger bonds.

If you’re not contemplating piling all of your clothes onto your bed this weekend, per Marie Kondo’s tidying advice, who even are you? It seems like every Instagram story is another picture of someone’s closet mound. Those I like. The pictures I’m jealous of are the neat and decluttered closet aftermath. Seeing those all week long were enough to convince me to grab a stack of black trash bags and start sorting.

“I am SO SICK of making their beds!” I think I almost growled it to my husband who was wondering why I was already so huffy at 6:45am. He offered a brilliant solution: Don’t make them anymore.
That sounds nice for the three other members of our family who go somewhere every day and forget about the undone housework left behind. But I work from home. I cannot think with unmade beds and a messy house, so leaving them unmade wasn’t an option.

With the toy influx brought on from December, I can't help but notice how many toys my kids have. Seriously, they're everywhere. I could spend all day cleaning toys, and in no less than 5 minutes, our house is a complete mess again.

“This year was awful. Just awful,” my friend shared over lunch today. “I can’t wait to get on to the next one!” Her year was worse than awful. She was diagnosed and rigorously treated for a deadly disease. She lost a family member. She endured hurtful family drama after the loss of said family member. What a hard year, we both lamented.
