About Me

BFF's Only is a site where I post some of the topics that come up over coffee or adult beverages with the bff's. We cover everything that girlfriends talk about, some of it is funny, some of it is trivial, some of it is raw, and some of it some people may even find offensive, and that's why you tell your best friend only.

You have that face that you show the world, but with your best friends there is no mask, no filter. You ask her things you would be too afraid to ask some one else.  You tell her things that you would never tell anyone else.  You complain, vent, giggle, and laugh together.

I'm a Happy SAHM, Yet...

Being a stay at home mom is a mess of contradictions.

It is liberating yet, it feels suffocating at times.

I long for the days when I problems solved with a team at work, yet I don't want to go back. I don't want to be tied to deadlines and what someone else deems important, yet I know I have the same thing here at home as well.

I don't want to miss a thing in my kids' lives, yet I am dreading going on the field trip, and being trapped all day with over a hundred second graders.

I sometimes feel guilty that my husband battles a long commute and works all day, yet I also resent his off time on the weekends when he gets up, runs, watches football or does whatever he wants while my "job" continues, 7 days a week.

I feel guilty for being mad about it because I know I have stolen moments throughout the day here and there to do what I want to do, yet it is nothing like a day off with someone else taking care of everything that usually falls on me.

I feel loved by m…

Do You Wonder How That Special Needs Kid Affects Yours In the Classroom? (2 minute read)

This was a conversation that I had with one of my fellow mom friends about a classmate in her daughter's class.  There are so many lessons children can teach us, if we only take the time to listen and to understand.  The beauty and pureness in their souls are amazing, and my hope for the world is  that light to never become dimmed. 

My daughter has a child in her kindergarten class that hardly speaks, struggles to understand the rules of kindergarten, really struggles to follow them, cannot use scissors properly, often runs out of the classroom, or can be found sitting in the middle of the classroom or hall putting on his shoes for 15 minutes as he struggles to tie them perfectly symmetrically. Someone has to be with him almost every minute of the day.How will this child impact my daughter’s education?Will she struggle to learn to read this year?How can she learn to add or subtract?
I volunteer when I have time in the library helping her class with the library lesson of the day an…

If You Want to Feel More Empowered Stop Doing This

Do you feel trapped in a situation? Helpless? Like there is nothing you can do?

There is.

Make a decision and own it.

Stop bitching about it. Stop saying you have no choice. Stop using your situation or the people around you as an excuse. Stop saying, "It is what it is" and letting the cards fall where they may.

You know what kind of people don't have decision making power? Victims.  If you want to be a victim, keep saying things like "but what can I do?" after a major bitch session while shrugging your shoulders.

When you pretend like you have no choice, you are abdicating responsibility for your life, and turning it over to someone or something else. That is the opposite of empowerment (and adulthood), and it will slowly erode your self-respect and confidence in yourself.

I'm not saying that people and circumstances don't impact or influence your choices.  If you have children, that will impact your options.  Maybe you can't go live in a yurt …
