• 26 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

    Twenty-six weeks along! Lately, I’ve been feeling huge! I had to dig up pictures from my 26 Week Bumpdate with Baby #1 to compare, because it just feels like I am way bigger this time around, but I don’t think I really am. Honestly, more than anything, I feel a bit bewildered that I am this far along. The first… [Continue Reading]

  • Thoughts On Becoming a Minivan Mom (Plus an Important Question for my Readers!)

    When people first heard that I was looking for a minivan, they often turned to me–with empathy pooling in their eyes–and asked “and how are you doing with that decision”?

Misspent Words

Misspent: adjective, spent wrongly or unwisely; squander, wasted: misspent youth. Language is powerful. Words have ignited wrath between families, began life-long romances, and started wars between countries. We deal daily with the ramifications of not only our actions, but also the things that we say.
