To be honest, when my friend Sarah showed me this photo from Lilly’s birth, I was initially appalled. All I could see was my unfocused-but-flabby self, immediately post birth.

I put you down every time I think you might finally be ready to sleep, and you do sleep…at least for a couple minutes. But about the time […]
In general, I feel like I have a semi-reasonable handle on my life. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I still fit into the “hot mess mom” category, but all my people are fed and we don’t live in general squalor and I even have managed to implement some routines that make life feel a […]

This post is directed toward my Jesus-loving friends. If that is not you, I’d invite you to read anyway, but there is much that won’t apply and some that may not make sense. If that’s the case, but you’re still interested, there’s a link at the bottom to some more thoughts on this Jesus guy.
