I never thought I’d have kids. I didn’t want any. I never spent time picking out the perfect baby names or thinking about what they might look like. I never worried about carrying on any family legacy. I always thought I’d be perfectly content with being single and climbing the corporate ladder. But, in the […]
We have partnered with Goldfish Swim School Edmond to bring you this information regarding their new location in the Oklahoma City area.
Six years ago, when my husband and I welcomed our first son into the world, we thought we were welcoming a perfectly healthy little boy into our lives. A NICU doctor handed him to me and said those exact words, “Congratulations you have a perfectly healthy baby boy.” Everything was exactly how we had pictured […]
As much as I find genuine joy in spending time with my daughter, I admit I look forward to “my time” when she falls asleep. It’s quiet; it’s peaceful; it’s space to think, unwind, and (most importantly) eat ice cream without having to share. Bedtime comes, and this feeling is amplified after a long day of structured […]

Early in our dating relationship, my husband and I discussed adoption as something God had placed on our hearts. We were 17. It felt forever away. When we were married at nearly 23, we continued to talk about adoption…in the future. Our plan – by the way, if you’re interested in foster care/adoption, throw […]
I have been on both sides of teacher gifts. As both the giver and the receiver I have made some observations on what is best! And I, like all of the teachers I have spoken with on this subject, first and foremost was appreciative of any token of love and appreciation! In fact, every teacher I talked […]
Before my husband and I got married, we both had dreams of a big family. Five kids, at LEAST. I wanted all boys, he wanted as many girls as possible – with at least one boy to carry on his love for all things outdoors. Despite a few complications, I enjoyed my first pregnancy, and knew I wouldn’t really have […]
Whether you gave birth naturally, had a c-section, or adopted, having a new baby can be extremely exhausting. On top of adjusting to life with your sweet little human, it can be tiring having friends and family wanting to come over to take a peek and get snuggles with your baby. As much as you love showing off […]
