On the flip side
So, grownfolks, I live in one of the states within America that has begun opening up in phases and boy, what a difference it has made!

Boy am I learning a lot in this journey of being a parent. One major thing, which I’ll dwell on today, is the issue of laziness. Now, I realize I haven’t gone far in the parenting deal. There are people who are parents of 6-year-olds, 12-year olds, 30-year-olds. So I’m clearly just beginning. I’d…Read more Parent away!
