Sarah is a 30-something mom of four children under six and wife to her high-school sweetheart. She returned to Acadiana two years ago following her husband’s completion of medical school and residency in Shreveport. After the move, Sarah switched gears from full-time pediatric speech-language pathologist and working mom to full-time stay-at-home mom to her brood. Her current hobbies include “speech-therapizing” her children, re-reading the Outlander series, catching up on her Netflix queue after the kids go to bed, completing XHIT videos at naptime, and taking her medication every morning. She loves and respects the sacredness of motherhood, but sometimes you just have to let go and laugh it out. Motherhood has been the most humbling, and empowering journey she has experienced.

Do You Storytime? An Ode to Ms. Meredith

Tuesday mornings begin like most other mornings: 2016 wakes us up, we drink our coffee and start cooking oatmeal for the other three. 2012 and 2015 are up next, followed shortly by 2013. They...

Not Ya MawMaw’s RiceNGravy

Rice and gravy is a staple in every Cajun household. As a matter of fact, it's basically one word here: ricengravy, and it's one of my sure-thing meals when the kids have a picky streak....

Overwhelming Motherhood :: Organizing Hand-Me-Downs
