About Brittney:

I’m a wife, a mom of five, and the proud owner of zero cats.

At a difficult time in my parenting life, where I wanted to be “anywhere but here” with regard to my children, I embarked upon a daily Time In routine. It would be supremely succinct of me to say that this practice – of interrupting myself to spend five minutes a day with my young children – saved my disintegrating relationships with them. Yet this statement, while entirely true, doesn’t reflect truth entirely because it lacks the crucial details demonstrating just how this change came about.
