Welcome Friends! I'm Glad You're Here!

I believe that women are amazing creatures, with perfectly imperfect gifts.

A strong woman only intimidates a weak person. If you've been told you're too much of anything - this is your place. Come join the group!

Women have a specific purpose to do good things in this world - to bring forth life in all ways and to nurture everything we touch. We are mothers, wives, sisters, friends, bosses, caretakers, lovers, advocates, teachers, and so much more.

This is a safe space where all are welcome. You are loved. You are enough. You will never be alone. And you will never be judged for doing your best to get through this crazy life.

When we stick together and help our fellow (wo)man, amazing things happen. I'm glad you're here.

Saying No Hurts No One

Why I Limit My Children’s Schedules I met up with a friend of mine the other day and she was so exhausted. She looked completely wiped out and said she was just run down. I couldn’t help but notice that she had bags under her eyes and looked really exhausted. I was and still am…

Family Guilt Trips

By Brandy | October 24, 2017

A Family Trip I Don’t Enjoy Sometimes, family isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I mean, I absolutely LOVE my family. I would do anything for my husband, kids, sister, brother, the in-laws, nieces, and nephews. This includes the family I’ve chosen for myself, the friends who are family, or framily. But there are…

#MeToo

By Brandy | October 18, 2017

We’ve seen it. We’ve seen the hashtag that is going around on social media about sexual assault or sexual harassment. It’s been very disheartening to see how many of my friends have been affected by another person abusing them. And typically, it’s perpetrated by a man who is in a position of power. When we…

Getting Back to Yourself: Mama Edition

By Brandy | October 17, 2017

I have an affinity for this subject, finding oneself. And maybe the reason is that I have felt so lost on so many days of my motherhood that I didn’t know where to go. I didn’t know who to turn to, or what to even say to my husband. I wasn’t sure who I was…

Mind Your Own Bees Wax

By Brandy | October 13, 2017

Lately, I’ve just become fed up. Fed up with others telling me how to live my life, and how you should live yours. As moms, we are inundated with “mommy-shamers” who tell us every day we are doing this Mom thing all wrong. It’s my gut instinct to just ignore this unwarranted advice – actually,…

My Mother Was Stolen

By Brandy | October 10, 2017

Our lives changed the day she got her diagnosis. I wasn’t so young that I wasn’t aware of what it meant, but I was quite certain she would beat it. A young girl of 16 doesn’t see death coming. I was more interested in boys, friends, and band. I wasn’t worried about my mom. She…

Why I’m Glad My Child Questions Authority

By Brandy | September 28, 2017

One of my children has special needs. One of my children does not. Ri is completely neurotypical and goes through everything 10-year-old girls do. Because my kids are so developmentally different, I struggle to parent my youngest without losing my patience. I find that with my oldest, Jamie, I have an infinite amount of patience…

Dads Are Superheroes Too

By Brandy | September 22, 2017

Dads of kids with special needs are often forgotten in the special family dynamic. I’m lucky enough to know several fathers of amazing kids with special needs. These dads are the best of the best. They go above and beyond typical parenting. Just like moms of kids with special needs, the dads have extraordinary jobs put…

Assessments: Heartache for Moms

By Brandy | September 20, 2017

New School, New Assessments Two weeks ago, Jamie started at his new school, bringing along a whole slew of issues that we have faced in the past and are pretty much used to. For instance, there is always the phone call from the nurse asking all sorts of questions about his health history and how…

Finding Your Mom Tribe

By Brandy | September 15, 2017

What is a Mom Tribe, anyway? And how do I find one? Well, a Mom Tribe is a group of women who count on each other; whether it’s sharing the carpool duty for after-school activities, bus stop hovering, helping out when one of the group is sick, and just generally being a shoulder to lean…
