Published on Scary Mommy?? PINCH ME!!

As the calendar turned to 2017, I sat down and wrote out a few blogging goals for the new year.

Today my kids sat in time-out… For an hour and 15 minutes.

It was a warm, sunny, summer afternoon. It was one of those beautiful days where there was enough breeze to not sweat, but enough warmth to remind you that the world is capable of being perfect. Was I outside sipping drinks on a roof top deck to enjoy this day? No. Was I spending the day at the beach with my beautiful family of 5? No. I was inside my house. Crouched on the 3rd step of our split-level home, hiding from the anger and sadness that was all around my walls. My 1-year old was screaming from her bed, the...
