It’s All Under Control

Just Not By Me!

My Name Is…

My name is Anne and I am a control freak trapped in the body of an imperfectionist. I am a daughter, wife, mom, sister-in-law and aunt. I am a baked-goods maker, health food lover and social media influencer. I do my best to live life by: 1 Corinthians 13.

This website is something I am doing as a release mechanism (therapy), for me; no one else! So please understand I am not trying to appease anyone.

Boy Mom

Being a ‘Boy Mom’ really is different from having all girls or even some of each. I find myself often thinking, ‘Did we really just have that conversation?’.

Am I Doing Any Of This Right?

There are so many days I wonder if I’m doing this homeschool and mom thing right.


‘Mom, we need you. Brother is crying!’ Is not out of the ordinary in a house full of boys, especially when we are homeschooling and together all of the time.


The supplies you HAVE to carry are many. There are the supplies you carry just to get through every day: glucose meter, test strips, alcohol wipes, lancets, insulin and syringes. Then there are the snacks in case Monkey’s blood sugar drops too low and needs some extra carbs. And don’t forget the Glucagon Emergency Kit.

When Mom Loses Control

It’s been a rough 2 weeks for Monkey and Peanut. They are both battling illnesses, Monkey had a diabetic check up and Mom has no control.


HE DID IT! HE DID IT! HE DID IT! The DEXCOM Continuous Glucose Monitor may be life changing for our family and I couldn’t be happier about it.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”1 Corinthians 13:13
