Embracing Change—and Saying Goodbye

Embracing Change—and Saying Goodbye

I’ve never been a fan of change. Change is usually hard. And leads to things unfamiliar. I much prefer the comfort of the safe and known. Unfortunately, change is all but a requirement of life.

Being Tough

Being Tough

My daughter is tough. In mind, body and spirit. Some days I consider this a blessing, others a curse. This toughness is coming in handy as she’s learning to ride her bike.

Oh Goodness, I’ve Created a Monster...

Oh Goodness, I’ve Created a Monster...

My husband and I are foodies; we love to try new foods and so passing this love of food on to our kids makes us happy. It really should have come as no surprise when my kids started to give detailed feedback on our meals.

Whew! The heat is hot.

Whew! The heat is hot.

Just when I thought we had dodged the summer heat, it turns out we haven’t. This year, I found something new to try —spongy water bombs that are inexpensive, fun and easy to make.

Tooth Fairy Trickery: A Fairy Tale for Grown Ups

Tooth Fairy Trickery: A Fairy Tale for Grown Ups

My 11-year-old son will be entering 6th grade. He’s becoming something of a young man, and he knows a thing or two. We’ve already had “the talk.” Yes, THAT talk. So, really, would it be a surprise to him if I outed the Tooth Fairy?

About This Blog

Hi! I’m Mari Farthing and I’m a mother, wife and freelance writer and editor living in Moore. Originally from Wisconsin and formerly the editor of MetroFamily, my husband Tony and I made our home in Oklahoma via orders from the USAF after spending years living in Germany and Washington DC. When Tony retired from active duty in 2011, we became official “Oklahomies.” I’m a former multitasker and current work-at-home mom, which sometimes is an exercise in futility. I am interested in books, music, knitting, running, cooking, laughing and writing and occasionally I get bored and add a few more interests to fill up the final 15 minutes of my day.

I sometimes succeed, sometimes fail, and consistently rewrite the to-do list that manages my day.
