A letter to my children about marriage and kids

I wanted to write this for some time now talking to you about marriage and kids! I want you to know that there are alternatives to being married and having kids. As we grow we see marriages, children and white picket fences everywhere from our own families, to friends, in movies, in TV… Literally everywhere! It’s instilled in us at a very young age. I want you to know it’s ok if these are not things that you want in...

I don’t want you to be me!

I want you to be a better than me! I want you to take the things from me that you like about me and keep them if you like, but be a better person than me! Some of the things that are important to me is that you make better decisions, set better examples and have more patience. I have written many letters to you three, but this may be the one I want you to take to heart the most. Tell the truth – Now I am not just talking about...
