I am an ‘official’ SAHM mom now. What did it? The staying home? The being puked on? The regular schedule of household chores? Nope. I made my very first batch of chocolate chip cookies with the boys from scratch. I know, I know, permanent rock star status.

So, remember when I wrote THIS BLOG about social media and young people? How I plan to parent through it? Well, a priest friend of mine posted THIS ARTICLE and got me freaking the freak right out. You see, I am pretty darn positive that I will be able to navigate my kids through the digital highways in a healthy way. I’m so convicted that I spend a great deal of time presenting to teens/parents about how to properly use this tool. But other kids??? Well that scares the smack out of me. The kids my kids will run into/associate with/etc… kids a few years old who have been exposed to pornography in graphic ways. I think, from working with teenagers in a ministry-type of way, I was already hyper paranoid about abuse of any kind. I constantly think of strategies to protect my children from predators (I know- but it’s true). How the heck can I protect my kids from the danger of other kids? How can I protect them from the innocence-shattering ways of technology that OTHER kids will expose them to? No, seriously, I am asking…how? Tell me; teach me, I am all ears.
You.guys. The Walking Dead. I am so nervous for Sunday night. Like whoa! I have read some theories and some spoilers and lemme just say, if they go where I think they might go, I am just not sure I can handle it. I mean...look at RICK'S FACE?!?!?!?
In completely different news. The blender continues to change our lives. Who knew how easy it'd be to get our kids to eat spinach? We have been doing a smoothie a day, and we do it in the afternoon...when everyone needs a pick me up. Let's just say...game.changer.
