So today was rough. I yelled too much. I zoned out too much. I disciplined too little, too late, to inconsistently. I whined about my kids on facebook. (To my facebook friends, which is to say… all of you, I’m sorry about that.) That’s kind of graceless, whining about a privilege that some women would give appendages […]

Hello again, there, my girl. (Did you know I love the excuse to write you a big long letter? To put together many of the words that I think about you all at once? This is fun.) Happy birthday, baby. Did you know you’re beautiful? Seriously. Inside and out, regardless of whether or not you have a […]
