    Fun In The Snow

    As anyone who has read my stories would know... I have a son. A very smart, rambunctious, kind, infuriating, loveable 4 yr old. When we walked out of the house yesterday... after carefully walking down the 3 steps he figured he was safe and took off through the snow... what he...

    Always Have and Always Will

    I have been trying new thing on my children for all their lives.  I now hear my daughter saying some of the things I used to tell her when she was younger.  I have to laugh when she comes to me for advice about getting her kid to do something they don't want to do.

    Done It

    I always tell my daughter you don't know if you are going to like it until you try it. Now I'm not referring to food as I'm the pickiest eater around, but in life. She's tried high diving, horse back riding, rock climbing, she's performed solos, played sports and more. She's very...
