Such is the case of a Massachusetts dad dealing with the world’s weirdest (and best?) home invasion. A person(s) broke into his house… and […]
I cried at my son’s preschool graduation. Oh, big deal, right? Here’s the thing: I didn’t cry at my wedding; I didn’t cry at his birth. But I cried at his preschool graduation. Partly because it means he’s a big kid now. Partly because I’ll miss his amazing preschool. And partly because I’m about to […]
My 5-year-old daughter has been to her fair share of birthday parties. When she was in daycare, she attended an event at an indoor playplace — complete with pizza, cake, and an impressive Disney princess. In preschool, she was invited to a museum party, a carousel party, a children’s play, and everyone’s “favorite,” Chuck E. […]
I have friends on Facebook who share their relationship details candidly — every fight, every cruel word. I know all their drama. It always seemed tacky to me. I could never. So many of my family and my fiancé’s family look at my page. It would be embarrassing to air out dirty laundry like that. […]
As I enter my doctor’s door, he cheerfully blurts out “So, do I see a little bump there?” No. No. No, for the love of God, do not ever ask. Don’t ask anyone if they’re pregnant. Don’t ask if they’re trying. Don’t even ask if they’re thinking about it. Even women that appear to be […]

In the early 1980’s my family packed up our rental home in Dallas and headed southbound 35 about 90 miles to a tiny town on the interstate called Waco. I was too young to remember the move, but my parents decided that our family would plant roots there. Now, over 30 years later, those roots […]

I live in the Midwest, but as a Southerner by birth, my heart goes out to the folks in Alabama and Georgia. What’s happening now is reflective of all the worst things that are associated with Southern culture. I’m disgusted but not surprised that men all over the country are standing at the front lines […]

If she were my first child, she’d have been my last. Or at least, that’s the phrase we use around the house when discussing our youngest, Aspen. It’s funny, because we used to complain about our oldest, Tristan. We talked about how wild he was. How he didn’t sleep well, and how I couldn’t get […]
When I was a kid, I loved reading about Laura Ingalls Wilder and her adventures on the prairies of Minnesota. I devoured the books and delighted in watching the television series that depicted a cute, bucktoothed girl in braids skipping through life on the banks of Plum Creek. I wanted to be the girl who […]
Three-year-old Truman Scott loved pancakes for breakfast, which his mother Tiffany says he called “pan-takes.” He loved running outside on the family farm in the sunshine wearing nothing but his tiny cowboy boots. He loved bossing his siblings around even though he was the youngest, and shadowing his father as he took care of chores around […]
The spring and summer youth sports season is upon us, my friends. I love it. I really do. In fact, you could say my family’s “all in.” My son plays soccer, baseball, and summer basketball; my daughter plays softball and my husband helps coach. Every weekend and several evenings during the week we find ourselves, […]
“My son is saying he is a girl because a friend at school recently transitioned and he thinks it’s cool to be transgender now. ” “My kid thinks she’s a he because of the YouTube videos she watches endlessly.” “‘Transitioning’ genders is not a real thing; it’s made up by internet trolls and lefties.” “There’s […]
