Kids Have it Easy These Days

When my dad was in school, he had to walk to school barefoot.  In the snow.  Uphill.  Both ways.  Uh-huh.  He told me so and I’m not going to argue with my dad.  Things sure were different when my dad was young than when I was.  When ...

If You Were Listening, You Would Know

Have you ever been someplace where you see a kid just totally misbehaving? Before I became a parent, it drove me crazy. I promised myself that once I had kids that I wouldn’t be THAT parent that had THAT kid. I swore that I would take ...
