Netflix Social Experiment… Teens

Every day, after I pick up my daughter from school, I ask her how her day was. I get creative because I know that this type of closed ended question can lead to answers like, “fine,” “good,” “okay.” So I ask her what songs they sang, what games she played at recess, who she hung…

I’m THAT Mom

Last week we were invited to a school BBQ, an opportunity to meet the teacher, see the classroom, and mingle with other parents. We received a reminder call the night before, the little voices on the other end reminding us to bring money. I was giddy. You want more money? Ok! Anything! Just let me…

But Will You Have More?

Now that we’ve made the decision not to have anymore children discussions surrounding babies, children, and pregnancy has become harder for other people than it is for me.
