Today call me chaotic…which indeed I am, having just hosted my mother and father-in-law, two sisters-in-law, two nephews, two nieces and one dog-in-law for a wonderful week in honor of Bill’s mother’s birthday.
Together with my family of four and our two dogs, this made for a grand total of thirteen people and three dogs under one roof over a period of seven days.
Chaotic. Plus also awesome.
And I’m lucky beyond words to have married into such a wonderful family.
Still, the last of our guests are leaving today and I feel the need to keep the chaos going. Which is why I’m thrilled to be visiting Jamie Walker at Chosen Chaos today as a part of her If I Could Turn Back Time series where I have a “talk” to my 18-year-old self.
You won’t be sorry. She’s one of those people who feels like a lifelong friend after only a few email exchanges. She’s that cool.
She’s a wife, mother of four, a blogger and a runner with excellent taste in music and beverages.
In other words, I love her. And you will, too.
So go there. Now.
And embrace the chaos. I dare you.

Today call me a mother; which means of course I’ve embraced the joys and uncertainties, the fear and faith that attends the title. Motherhood is a gift beyond words, a challenge that bears a name but no fair or complete description.
In its sharpest distillation, parenting calls... Read more
