Where “When Mommy’s Home with Me” came from…
This book has been a very long process of about 10 years! Here’s the story…inspired by some great ladies!
I’ve known many great women in my life who have all influenced the moms I chose in “When Mommy’s Home with Me.” A decade ago I lived in Florida, far away from my family. Playgroup became a lifeline. I always looked forward to socializing with other moms who had become my friends and mentors. One day, as we handed out cheerios, scooped rocks out of our babies mouths, and rescued children who freaked out halfway across the monkey bars, the conversation turned to our PK lives–who we were Pre-Kids. These outstanding moms were also outstanding individuals, excelling in very diverse careers and possessing very impressive talents. They ran businesses, they taught, they created, they managed. One friend even was recruited by the CIA as a spy! I began to notice their unique talents as it translated to their mothering. I realized more than ever that a women’s education, experience, and talents are never “wasted” at home. Indeed, there is nowhere those talents can thrive more than in raising little people. Some moms had taken a break to mother full time, and others saved their best for their kids after a long work day away from home. But all of them were totally committed to their families. They were an inspiring group of ladies! Read more

Up Kind of Day
Need help getting your kids to help? Up Kind of Day was written as a companion for the Flylady’s organization system, especially for the kids at your house. This project was such a blessing to work on with my sisters Amy and Valerie, talented vocalists Eric and Andy Dodge, and some special guests. We were able to record it in Nashville for a professional recording session with some of the industries best studio musicians. Your family will be dancing around as they pick up toys, dust, and get rid of clutter. There are even songs for getting moving in the morning, and snuggling up at night.
