Well guys, it happened. Almost two years day for day, I wrote a post about how Charles enjoyed "girl" stuff.  This is how it ended: I love the fact that Charles is still young enough to not even be aware that any stereotypes exist.

How Do You Reset Your Mind?

Yesterday, I had a bad day. I mean, I was bitten and hit.  I burned myself and had to throw away some food because I messed up.  I had to clean up too many pee accidents to count a mere minutes after asking my toddler if he needed to pee.  I almost missed Charles' drop… Continue reading How Do You Reset Your Mind?

Wordful Wednesday

Wordful Wednesday

I saw this over at The Zero-Waste Chef last week in a post about making tofu.  The words just stood out to me and I wanted to share them with you. I've always been careful with the environment.  I've never been one to litter, I seamlessly jumped on the recycling train (so to speak) and… Continue reading Wordful Wednesday
