The Terrible Wonderful Thing

Picture 123

I’ve been having a lot of those ‘it’s so nice to have older kids’ moments lately. You know, those times that hit you as you all spur-of-the-moment go out to eat, and don’t need to pack sippy cups or diapers ahead of time. When you go to a friend’s house, who also has bigger kids, […]

It is not lost on me that my dad is celebrating his 70th birthday today. Not sure if it’s due to hearing about it more, because of social media, or if life is just taking these difficult turns more frequently for more people, but too many I know do not have this gift. To have […]
