Do you ever feel bombarded with unrealistic expectations for parenthood? Pinterest, Mommy Blogs and carefully crafted Facebook posts can make us feel a bit inadequate at times. Or worse, like we're failing all together! It's nice to have a breath of fresh (and real!) air to clear our heads and remind us that parenting is messy! We're only human. And what our kids need most is not perfection, but US. 

Guest blogger Ari Terry joins us today to tell us her story of one of the "other days".

Written by

Family Storytelling, DIY Bedroom Makeover, Teen GirlLanell and I wasted no time. We stood up, found a corner of the wallpaper that would lift a little, and just started tearing.

Family Storytelling, Back To School, Family Story, GrandfatherIt is “back to school” time and I think of all that we do as we prepare our kids to go. Lots of school shopping for back packs, supplies, and name brand clothing. How nice if it was just simple. There is always a worry about who my kid’s teacher is going to be. Will they teach my child well? My husband’s 2nd Great Grandfather Benajah Julius Record shared some experiences when he was a boy and attended school.

The cub scouts surrounded me the moment I walked in the door. Talking over one another like giddy hens they couldn’t wait to tell me everything they’d learned.
