Empty Nest Mom: Feathering Your Own Nest [Guest post]

I have been asked “How do I do it?”, “Aren’t you sad?”, Don’t you miss her?” And the answer is “Of course”.  I remember that Saturday morning like it was yesterday. I woke up, looked at the clock. 8:00 AM. Jumped out of bed and dashed down the hall. “Get Up Get Up! We’ll be late. We have to go to the barn and get your horse loaded in the trailer.” Then I stopped in my tracks and looked at her room. It was empty. No horse show this weekend. My daughter was out of the house beginning the next…

Sometimes, one of those things is pooping. Chronic constipation can result from this refusal to sit still longer than a minute.  Photo by sydney Rae on Unsplash Chronic constipation can also be caused by a child having periods of painful pooping at one point and therefore becoming scared of the act of pooping. There’s also the possibility that their diet is not iron-rich enough or doesn’t contain…

Homeschooling in the UK

The hubs and I were discussing homeschooling the other day. It's because he walked into the room when I was watching a video from Jamelia on why she decided to homeschool her daughters. We suddenly realized that neither of us knew much about homeschool in the UK. We don't directly know anyone in the UK who is being homeschooled either. It's not something I hear much about at all at home but I certainly hear a lot about homeschooling in the USA and I can think of many moms who are homeschooling their children of various ages all over the…
