How parents can win with time

Time isn't the issue. Engagement is. Parents struggle to have energy for their kids. When they do, anger gets in the way of quality engagement. Parents can win with time if they can manage their anger. #parenting #momlife #dadlife

From drifter to mom: my journey

All my life I quit before I built anything extraordinary. When my son was born I wondered whether I could stick with motherhood all the way.

All my life I quit before I built anything extraordinary. Can I stick with motherhood all the way? I wondered these thoughts when I met my son for the first time. It was 12 hours after a c-section under general anesthesia. I was groggy but I was quite sure my atypical feelings were mine alone. #parenting #momlife #momsquad #dadlife #dadsquad

On parenthood

Parenthood is a phase once you're you're never out

Parenting is not about being the ideal parent. It’s about raising a little person with a mind of his or her own to the best of your abilities and circumstance. Parenting is about trying to cope the best we can and remembering to look into those little faces, with or without our children. #parenting #momlife #momsquad #dadlife #dadsquad

My first day off from motherhood

I had my first day off from motherhood. I'm hooked and my husband, elated

Like most moms, I thought I was indispensible. My son has to have me by his side and everyone else is wrong about everything. Fast forward to 18 months later I'm knackered and most times all I want to do is some me-time. I also snapped out of postpartum depression and figured out I had a hand to play in the thin relationship my husband had with my son. #parenting #marriedlife #momlife #momsquad #dadlife #dadsquad
