Anyways… 8 Rules for Living with Teenagers: Do not try to engage your teenage son in conversation before the bus. He […]

Five Inadvertent Weight Loss Tactics Created By My Kids

I’m no stranger to small children trying to eat, touch, use, or break anything enjoyable that comes across my path. It’s part of the job description. Eating ice cream?

Documentation of Grievances

Documentarian of Grievances

I’ve always found it interesting the way women express themselves. Some women quietly maneuver throughout their world while others (like me) need a microphone to express every last detail.
