For the third time in a year Mo is in a cast. The first time he was a good sport about it.  It happened in the Summer which deprived him a little bit of fun but we improvised and found some non sports related activities to do. The second time, he was DEVASTATED initially.  He […]

Feeling High

It’s easy to get caught up in life and lose sight of what really matters. Day to day meanderings are part of living but don’t beat yourself up over things you can’t control. Years from now I won’t care that my outfit wasn’t quite the latest fashion, I didn’t have the most stellar day, I […]

There comes a point in life when you need to garner a sense of accountability.  A time to be liable for your actions.  A time to GROW UP.  The minute you’re responsible for the union of sperm and an egg is a good time. As an adult your child deserves more than mediocrity. Your father […]

First Day Of School

It’s hard to believe the boys are finally off to school together.  For the first time. Their 4 year age difference will have them apart in school more than together so I am really loving this moment. Mo being in 4th grade really affords him the opportunity to play the Big Brother role to B, […]
