In Sickness and in Health

There are many things I had forgotten about having little people in your life, such as the dangers that lurk in every corner of your house, their resistance to sleep despite being beyond tired and lastly, their ability to catch bugs, spread it around and bring down households of adults.

The Maternal Bond

My finger has been hovering over the publish button for the last hour.  Like anything in life, there are highs and lows and I feel as if I should keep everything upbeat, even when its not the truth.  At the very outset, I declared that I would be real.

The ugly box

In my About page, I talked about taking a good hard look at myself.  Well, here goes...
