My Baby Graduated From Pre-K

In August 2017, I reflected on the philosophical meaning behind my first child’s admittance into pre-kindergarten in a blog post. I talked about adjusting to a new wake-up time and an odd pick-up time. Jrue used to verbally disgorge everything he’d heard in a day in to-the-minute vocal tones…

When I first heard of a “Pinterest,” it was as I scrolled down my primary social medium’s timeline. What was a what? I couldn’t even say it correctly. From my first curious glance at the app, I could determine that it included the essential ability to…

My Favorite Olympic Sport

I think bobsleighing is cool to watch. I couldn’t drive the bobsleigh out of the sheer terror of flipping us over and down the banked twists of wickedness, but I could lean with the best of them. I have loved figure skating since my younger days watching Kristi…
