"One thing they never tell you about child raising is that for the rest of your life, at the drop of a hat, you are expected to know your child's name and how old he or she is."

Erma Bombeck

Welcome to the place where I keep my thoughts, dreams, and goals. I write because I gain clarity as the words escape my fingertips. I record my day to day experiences to keep a record for my children, and to find joy - one more time.

I'm happy that you're here, and I welcome any thoughts you want to share. My greatest blessings in life have come through the relationships I've built, and many of them have started online. We are all more alike than we are different, so sit back, relax and enjoy a story or two. Our family is neverending entertainment, and there may be one or two of you that resonatte with my thoughts. I don't have all the answers to raising children, but I do have a lot of practice!
