They Deserve Better

Last night at the grocery store, I bumped into a woman I worked with at the preschool.  She and all the other women there are very nurturing and have the best intentions, but after our conversation I left feeling very sad.  She was telling me about how she and her co-teacher already have their class […]

Back on schedule and working on my post the day before it’s due, Yes!  Let’s see Wednesday topic: Parenting.  Hmm, I could talk about how we are getting closer and closer to being empty-nesters.
