Well who would have thought that we, parents of the year would make the unsettling discovery that our 14 year old son would be caught with chew? Considering our year of parenting teen firsts this somehow came as a great big surprise to my husband and I.

…that should cover it! I find this time of year even more challenging than the holidays in December and am always looking for creative, beautiful gifts for Teachers, Grads, Father’s Day, Baby Showers, Weddings…Whew. I am probably forgetting something, too. Really, I am frequently forgetting things…peri-menopause or something worse? You make the call.
Since our school system has a strict no gift policy that no one adheres to…oops, I mean, everyone does…really, they do. It is not as if…Continue

More and more, the following conversation seems to take place, usually at pre-school or on a play date.
Random parent or teacher, "You know Richard, you really should have a girl, you would love one".
Me, "If they sold them at stores, I'd think really hard about it."

Today my 15 year old boy started his summer job as a summer camp counselor. He did all the leg work, calling, applying and was up and ready to go early this morning. I'm not sure why but this made me a little emotional. it could be becuase my only child is turning a corner and becoming a young man. It's a great thing I know, but I can still picture that 3 year old running towards me with his little legs pumping away and ready to jump into my arms. Oh, he stills hugs me because he is…Continue

Just this morning, my youngest Arman woke me up and asked for his DSI. I told him, “Remember the deal? That since everyone…Continue
