Seemingly Overnight
All parents are victims of the whimsical naivety in admitting our child's development happens "seemingly overnight". We all, and I'm assuming first time parents the most, are peering constantly at every sound, smell, and motion while our child is awake and ...

Gunner is now 2. Terrible 2? Far from far (knock on wood). It has definitely been an interesting two years. There are some very tough times, a ton of decision making and second guessing and third guessing, brain racking, patience and endurance tes...

Oh the Dread....
Once again, I have gone longer than desired with releasing a new post. It is been 2 months. While I would like to attribute it to the time constraints of my loving, attentive, and constantly thorough parenting, truth is when the kid goes to bed and you find...
