Mother and Reader: Two Sides of the Same Coin

by Stacey

  Mother and reader. These are the two descriptors that I use most often to describe myself. And I’ve come to realize that these two roles have an awful lot in common. For both the mother and the reader: You can never choose a favorite. Every time my girls ask me who is my favorite, […]

What I’m Into (October 2017 Edition)

by Stacey

This month I decided it would be fun to link up with Leigh Kramer’s What I’m Into Series so here goes… September was… well, it was September. Every year, parents of school aged children know it’s coming but it seems to knock us on our backside every single time. This year, Katherine started middle school […]

Little Fires Everywhere: A Review

by Stacey

When I heard that Celeste Ng had a new book coming out, the first thing I thought was, ‘Oh, no!’ Ng’s first book, Everything I Never Told You, was such a huge hit that a follow up seemed risky. Interestingly, and for no particular reason, I never read Ng’s debut but after reading Little Fires […]

That said, I suppose Katherine Hepburn is right. It is still important to remember that things are fun. So here goes… a collection of […]

Rhythm

by Stacey

“Rhythm is one of the most powerful of pleasures, and when we feel a pleasurable rhythm we hope it will continue. When it does, it grows sweeter.” Mary Oliver Last week I mentioned that I am working my way back through an on-line class that I took years ago called 31 More Things. In this […]

Daydreams

by Stacey

Day Dreams* I don’t often remember my dreams and I’m jealous of those that do. I’ve tried to keep a notebook by my bed to write them down but somehow that never works. I don’t tend to wake up in the middle of the night (thank goodness!) unless called upon by a child or animal. […]

Picture Book Therapy

by Stacey

On Saturday, a week after Charlottesville, I realized what I needed to help me feel even a tad bit better about the state of our world. I needed picture book therapy. I read picture books with the girls each and every day for years and years and years. In fact, Katherine and I read pictures […]

You Are Doing It Now

by Stacey

  When I read this tweet on Saturday afternoon, I felt sick to my stomach. What was I doing? I was cleaning out Katherine’s closet. I had to turn off the tv because I was so upset and disgusted (and this was before anyone died at the hands of an evil message and messenger) and […]
