Accidental Homeschooling

Recently, we had the opportunity to enter our 1st grader into a Spanish Immersion program. When we first looked into it, we thought: this is amazing. And I still think it’s great. But as the summer wore on, we started thinking: maybe we want to keep homeschooling? FYI: this is totally weird because when we [...]

‘Twas the night before kindergarten and all through the house, not a creature was stirring… except Mommy. And I have no idea why.

I met an old friend for drinks a few weeks ago and a conversation we had has been on my mind ever since. Understandably, she was quite upset because her husband asked her why she never dressed provocatively or sexy anymore. I feel like the fact that she has three little kids at home is [...]
