She woke up that morning confident and far more chipper than usual, maybe because she had a good night’s sleep or maybe because she had no reason not to be chipper. Her clothes had been picked out the night before, by her of course, and everything was set to go smoothly. And it did, it […]

Yesterday was one of those parenting days when I just had to put myself on auto-pilot and breath. I had to remind myself not to raise my voice because if I did, I was going to lose my mind. Children are darling except for when they are not. I have to say that Put Pie, […]
