My four-year-old has moments where he will just “kind of” eat his dinner in that push-my-food around my-plate-to-make-it-look sparse kind of way–because no parent would catch on to that one .

Lessons in Gratitude from Grand-Mama

I’m Grateful to Have a Spouse Who Manages My Car Repairs

On Sunday afternoon my car started having little seizures as I was running errands. I thought maybe these were because of the cold, but then I know little about cars. By Monday morning, if I were in an early 90’s Dr. Dre video it would have been kinda hot the way my car was bouncing […]
