So, Our House Flooded


  So, our house flooded. And, it wasn’t a tiny flood. We are now living in a hotel. Yep, and we’ve been here for a week already. Thanks Boy Child. I wasn’t home when the flood occurred. I got a call from our babysitter saying that something had happened to the toilet on the third

This Is How We Roll…


If you remember from my last post, “Don’t Tell Me I’m Losing My Son,” I was having a difficult time finding joy amongst The Boy Child’s complicated health situation. I felt like I was swimming, and swimming, and I wasn’t getting anywhere, except closer to the bottom of the pool. But, if you also recall,

It Was Always Meant To Be


On Friday, The Boy Child was hooked up for an extended video EEG, which basically means that a bunch of electrodes were glued to his head, several EKG electrodes were placed on his back, and then an EEG machine was wrapped on top of his head, therefore making him look like a smurf. The box

Please Pray For Us


Do you ever have those days where you feel so overwhelmed, that you don’t feel like you can even think straight? I’m having that month, and I’m not sure where to even start explaining. Things have been a bit chaotic in the Strong household, and I’m spending more time crying and praying that I don’t

Pumpkins At Midnight


Five years ago, my ex took The Girl Child to a Daddy Daughter dance, and in the morning, he walked out of our lives forever. Last Friday, exactly five years since that night, The Guy escorted The Girl Child to his very first Daddy Daughter Dance. And although The Girl Child has been blessed with

My Ex Is Ruining My Marriage


Last Friday, she called me at 6am, 9am, 12pm, 4pm, and 2am, and then her family called me at 3pm and 7pm. And she is just one of my many nonprofit clients. I absolutely adore her and she is definitely one of my favorite clients, but she is going through some really tough things right

…And Then A Squirrel Pooped On My Face


I’m not sure how many of you were around a few years ago, but back in 2014 I shared my horrific ridiculous tale of attempting to visit several pumpkin farms, with the goal of snapping the perfect fall photo of my kids. #BackWhenIHadGoals #BackWhenMyGoalsWereStupid But if you do remember, it didn’t go well. AT ALL. Unless of course by “going

They Just Never Stop Talking


I swear, my kids have been extra weird lately. Like not even the “typical” weird that I’ve gotten used to and come to expect, but a whole new level of weird that I was not even aware existed until recently. Allow me to explain: Sunday: After catching sight of a male friend’s hairy legs (it’s

Eight Months Later…


So… I just realized that it’s been like EIGHT MONTHS since I did one of those “and this is what we’ve been up to” posts. What the hell Eden, pull it together! With that being said, I just went back through my photo files from the last few months and I’m here to update all

Mommy’s New Man


If you remember from my last post, “To My Beautiful Daughter,” both of my children had birthday’s last month, and as I have done since before they were born, I had written a letter to each of the them; letters that are written on a weekly basis, and will one day be compiled into a
