Sweet Summertime

Well, here we are. Time for another Heger family update. Updates are few and far between these days because I am still working out my feelings about how public I should make my kids' lives. I live a pretty public life, and as a parenting writer, that means my children do to an extent as well, though I try to make my writing more about me than them. Still. We millennials are raising a generation that will have online identities created for them before they can even spell their names,...

Escaping in 2018

Well here we are halfway into the second month of 2019 and I'm still reflecting on 2018. Last year was a total whirlwind and ended in such chaos that I feel like I'm still catching my breath. The hectic nature of 2018 was a bit intentional on my part. I was exhausted and depleted at the end of 2017.

I kept a small pregnancy journal with thoughts, fears and dreams. I'm not even sure where that journal is now. I...

The days were long and hot, but in the water we were both cooler and lighter. It was in those summer days and in that pool that I started to feel...

The Marriage Chronicles

It was one of those days where I felt like I did everything. Truth is, I do end up being responsible for the majority of housework chores, but that doesn't mean Steven does nothing. But that's how I felt. So when the dog was barking (verrrry loudly) I demanded Steven take her out to pee. And I wasn't very nice about it. Because I wasn't very nice, he got angry. And so began the argument. It was one of those "I do everything and you do nothing." kind of arguments with rebuttals consisting of "You're...
