Yesterday I was going to post an update on Nat after her hideous time last year being bullied, and how bullying is out of our lives. Sadly, bullying is not out of our lives. So yesterday I posted an update on Nat (yay, it's a happy story!) and now the stuff I'm not so happy… Continue reading Not the last bullying post (Part 2)
Background: For those of you who weren’t with me last year, we had quite the saga with our youngest child, Nat, being bullied at school. Long story short, she’s now at a different school. If you want to read the back story, you can read Bullying Sucks, and Bullying Still Sucks. Here I was, all… Continue reading Not the last bullying post (Part One)
You know I've been away so long, I almost don't know where to start. There's so much busting to get out of me here that when I start writing, I can't be sure I'll be able to stop. Could be a long night! OK, let's just start with where we are. So it's February. Already!… Continue reading Where to start?! New adventures for a new year!

Over the weekend I had a great chat with my daughter, quite possibly, the best so far. We had a two-hour road trip and we talked. And we talked. The. whole. time. I can't speak for Nat, but for me, that was so good for my soul. I feel like we totally connected and were both… Continue reading When being yourself equals trouble

It's hurting her self-esteem in a big way so we're really trying to affirm at home that each one of our children is special, wonderful and amazing in their own way. And as the… Continue reading Scripted Sunday: Youer than you
I never thought that my daughter would be bullied. She's feisty and confident. She'd stand up to someone twice her age and size ... or so I thought. But I was wrong because at the moment another seven-year-old girl is making her life miserable. My Nat is being bullied. From a mamma's point of view,… Continue reading Bullying sucks
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQrCti-hqu0 For the last few weeks the kids and I have been loving a new song on the airwaves. I recently learned it's by an awesome and inspiring young kiwi artist. The lyrics, the message, and the story to get the song out there - it's too good and too important not to share. Here's the… Continue reading ONE VOICE
