Stef Daniel

Stef Daniel is the 40ish year old, experienced (meaning crazy already) mother of count ‘em…4 daughters (yes, she takes prayers) who have taught her nearly E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G she needs to know about raising kids and staying sane. She hails from a small town in Georgia where she lives with her family in a red tin roofed house (with just ONE bathroom mind you) on a farm - with tons of animals of course. One day, due to her sheer aversion to shoes and her immense love of the sea, she aspires to penning her way to fame on a deserted island in the Florida Keys. For now though, Georgia will do. Stef moved from Maryland to Georgia on a whim that proved transformational at the age of 21. Soon after she met her husband, got pregnant with twins and decided to give up a career in law enforcement to become a stay at home mother to her children. In an effort to pursue her personal passion for writing, earn some income (for beach vacations), and remain available to her now 4 children she began her freelance writing career from a used laptop in her living room. To date, she has several published works for both adults and children to her name, thousands of credited works and a laundry list of clientele that she works for on a regular basis. Stef Daniel is also the author of http://www.softballisforgirls.com/, and several children’s books about softball. Stef and her husband are extremely active in empowering the girls of Fastpitch softball (and other sports) and currently coach three Fastpitch teams. Currently, most of their free time as a family is spent sweating in dugouts at various ballparks in Georgia chanting cheesy softball cheers while encouraging girls to wear deodorant. (But they wouldn’t have it any way!) Stef believes that motherhood and womanhood should bind each and every one of together, rather than tear us apart. Her primary focus in life is her family and hearing the laughter of her daughters. She is also interested in nearly anything metaphysical, adores Reiki and meditation and her LIFE MANTRA adopted from her own mother is, “All is Always well!” Which, she is finding out on a daily basis, is pretty much always true!

You need to run to the store.  It's 5 minutes away – and your 10 year old is happily sitting on the couch catching up on episodes of her favorite show, in her pajamas.  All you need is a half gallon of milk.  If you try to load her up she will whine about not ...

We all know that children grow up. Sadly, this fact never hits you quite as hard as it does when your child suddenly becomes embarrassed by your hugs, kisses, or hand-holding. They become too old for mom. There is nothing in the child development books that warns us about this key moment in our parenting career. In fact, the parenting books and ...

What’s in a Name?

Friday, August 23rd, 2013 by from Mom, Myself, & I
Unless you have been living under a rock, chances are you have heard about the little boy whose parents were court ordered to change their child's name from Messiah to Martin. But this isn't a post about whether forcing that change was right or wrong; an exercise in too much government or necessary for the well-being of the child. This post is ...

As a mother of 4 daughters, I have gone through the budding chest stage a few times.  Admittedly, its sort of awkward, especially with your first daughter.  The thing is, for many girls this stage where they start to experience pubescent changes is occurring as early as the 2nd or 3rd grade. ...

It's August, which means that all over the United States, kids are either back in school already or are soon going to school for the first time. If you are anything like me, the August Back-to-School Rush also may come with a bit of turmoil, which challenges your common sense to make a decision that ...

I am no fashionista. As I get older, I am finding it more and more difficult to find "mom-appropriate clothes" that also fit with my lifestyle. At any given time, you could pop over to my house and catch me wearing comfortable shorts, an aged, softened T-shirt with no bra (and likely some paint stains on it), barefoot, and HAPPY! (Of course ...

Pregnancy is all fun and games until something goes amiss. For me, my ‘amiss’ occurred at 28 weeks pregnant with twins when I started experiencing what I assumed were Braxton Hicks contractions. They weren’t. A quick visit to the hospital confirmed that I had in fact started going into early labor. This, after 28 weeks of a perfect, ...

Certainly, you have those days when you are so overwhelmed with motherhood that you consider (or dream about) going back to work, because not only would it be easier - but you would also get paid. Right? (Please say RIGHT so I don't feel all alone!) Or, you start looking forward to the days when you will have all of your kids within the brick ...

  The other day, sitting at the ball field with a bunch of 11 and 12 year old girls, I overheard a conversation the kids were having about the 'state of the union,' so to speak.  It was almost laughable to hear them discussing politics, using words that they didn't really know the meaning of ...

Creating Good Karma

Friday, August 9th, 2013 by from Mom, Myself, & I
Do you believe in karma?  As in the ever popular simplification that 'what comes around goes around'?  This perception of karma is one of the most widely held beliefs among people of different cultures and religions around the world.  Karma, and karma creation is also one of the new age foundations for most ...
