Since we are now counting down to less than a month before baby #3 arrives, we’ve been in a ‘rush’ to get through a few things. One of these being Roman’s birthday. There’s anxiety that comes wrapped with any occasions that take place 3 weeks before your baby is due, especially when it’s your son’s […]

The Sports Lesson | Confessions of a Perfectionist Parent

Sports for our children is basically new for us. Sure, we’ve been involved in the random t-ball leagues for a couple of seasons but now, somehow, something has changed.

    Thanks for your honesty. We did soccer last fall and had to CONSTANTLY remind myself that it wasn’t about me and my expectations, but about my son and HIS experience. Thankful for grace.

    Great pics, of course :) ReplyCancel

    So sweet! Wanted to let you know how much we really enjoyed getting to see your boys at Audrey’s birthday party.

    Perhaps your best blog yet! Brought back happy/sad memories of his daddy’s first day of school. If only I could stop crying! My favs are the goofy faces in the front yard and getting off the school bus (both times!) Thanks for sharing that. I loved, loved, loved it!ReplyCancel

Sunshine and Rainbows | Manno Family

A million years ago, I stumbled upon an opportunity to work as a radio personality on a pretty popular morning show…..but not for very long. I¬†was fired after a few months. I didn’t get fired because of swearing on the air or anything. I just wasn’t the kind of personality they wanted for the show. […]
