I just had the privilege of having the most fascinating visit to my hooligans’ school.  Ordinarily my wonderfully amazing fantastic father (love you still Daddy!) picks up my kids from school.  However, due to extenuating circumstances, I’m on kid duty for the next few days.  I arrive at the school and am standing out front talking to a couple of t...

I should probably start with a disclaimer that I am truly biased because I have the best Daddy ever made—EVER.  No, no, I understand that some of you may THINK that your own Daddy is the bestest, but I’m sorry to tell you he’s not because mine is. 

Now that we have that out of the way…

My friends know that I have practically placed my father on...

As a parent I find my children fascinating—most parents do.  But for me, it’s a little different in that I’ve found children fascinating my entire life.  I’ve been told I have an old soul, and would buy into that given that I always felt older somehow than my peers. 

Now, I find children fascinating in so many ways, but in particular when...

Life is all about reaching markers of achievement.  From the moment we’re born everyone around us counts them.  Our first word, first crawl, first step, first haircut, first date, first wedding…ok, we all hope there is only one wedding, but… 

Today was my youngest son’s graduation from Kindergarten.  A big milestone.  Now, there is part of...
