For Better of For Worse

The card I never sent

September 21, 2016

  “Oh my God! I think I’m turning into mom!” My sisters and I used to joke. My mom was a good sport about it 😉 Which is why I bought this card for her many Halloweens ago. And for many Halloweens I thought I would get around to sending it to her… Because it […]

December 2, 2015

Guest Post by Lisa Smith Last week, my 11 year-old boy woke up on the wrong side of the bed. He was very unhappy with everyone and at everything (including me). I couldn’t do anything right. My mere existence irritated him. We rode to school in silence. When we got there he continued to look […]

February 9, 2011

It’s 6:33 am. I’m sitting at my desk. I’ve been up for over an hour. I’m hoping to get some work done before the baby and my three-year-olds wake up. Then it’s time to get them dressed, fed and off to school. There’s a mountain of books next to me and one on the floor […]

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

I am about to make a very embarrassing confession.
