August has me sighin’ like, whoa. This summer has been super dee duper! Okay, my apologies, by child is watching Barney and that was uncalled for. I begged her to change it but she’s mesmerized now and there’s no turning back. I’ve lost her to the purple side. I’m not ready for summer to be…

You Want a Tattoo Where? How Netflix can Help open a Dialogue Between You and Your Kids

4 am is peak time in our house. It’s the time of the morning that our elderly cat starts the call of her people. It’s the time of morning that the fat cat begins to beg for attention and shoves her very large, unusual paws in my face. And 4 am is the time of…
