"Curry answered the questions, his daughter got some quality time and in a world of super serious stuff, we got a peek at something so pure and wonderful.. a dad making sure his kid knew that she was an important part of his life.
What do you think? Do you think Curry should have had his daughter at the podium? Are the sports writers justified or do they need a coffee enema?"
"Let me explain how out of my comfort zone I am right now. The last time I was actually single, Seinfeld and Friends were both on television. I didn’t have 1 kid let alone 4 of them…let alone raise them alone…let alone face the fact that they may not be very happy I’m dating at all. Add to this the myriad of worries I have…what happens when you go out, do you kiss her goodnight? I haven’t kissed anyone in so long…what if I’m terrible at this? What if they want to have sex?! That means more kissing again! What if they are freaked out by the fact that I have so many kids?! Dear God I hadn’t thought about sex. What if they don’t like that I have grey hair? OH MY GOD WHAT IF THEY WANT TO HAVE SEX?!
DEAR GOD WHAT IF THEY ACTUALLY SAY YES TO A DATE?!"
OMG I LOVE David Manoucheri for being so transparent.

"I want all my children to feel safe, but especially this one child. A few years ago when we traveled from Ethiopia back to the states he was scared to death that we were going to kill him. Of course, we didn’t know that the older boys in the orphanage had told him that when you leave with the foreigners they take you home and kill you…but that is another post.
Often I’ve wrestled with finding a balance of sheltering and helping my children process the hard realities of this world. In an idyllic way…I want my kids to enjoy a carefree childhood but as they grow it must be balanced with what is going on in our world today.
So, how do we bring these things up? How can we teach compassion and empathy when the world is scary and filled with so much hate?"
