I used to chase my kids around the house in the morning, getting everyone ready to leave for school. Then one day, I stopped.
I keep telling the kids that when you find something that you love, don’t be afraid to admit it.
How do you tell an 11-year old to "just walk away" from something so offensive?
Parents make contingency plans for their kids on everything. But what happens when you fall suddenly ill?
As a parent, there’ll come a time when your children will judge you. Impart wisdom on the way you talk, walk or dress. Something about you doesn’t live up to snuff, and they’re gonna tell you so.
The kids’ paternal grandfather recently, and very suddenly, passed away.
Now, being a parent, I believe, instantly makes you a nonsense detector... I go from zero to ninja in 10 seconds.
I finally relented. After much badgering, I cut SweetGirl some bangs.
Today was a day for nothing. No school. No work. Today we had off from everything. And, oh was that glorious.
In honor of Easter, I offer the following…
A conversation with my 10-year-old, SweetGirl:
I’m going to say something which might be unpopular.
“… and don’t you say another word!”
My kids are growing up, and it’s freaking me out.
