Fathers Day not my cup of tea!

The thought of a day where people celebrate my fatherhood has never really been my thing.

Reflections on Anti Bullying Awareness Month (Guest Post)

As a single mother of three children I thought I understood bullying.  I’ve read every  definition and policy on it from daycare to preschool to grade school now.  I’ve preached against it to my own children, I’ve tried to teach against it and redirect it on the playground and at play dates.  We watch movies like Mean Girls and celebrate Pink Shirt Day every February.  For someone who thought she had “got it” I’m feeling awfully...
