May my reaction to having a book published never be less than a tear infected, snot filled, scream fest.
Want me in your ears every week?
I’ve been having car issues. Mechanically, my SUV was cherry. Logistically I wanted to light it on fire and push it into the pond. The problem is that I have three children in car seats on a single bench seat. So what, you ask? Oh, you’ve never put a condom on a dude then tried to […]
Last week Gigi’s midterm report came home informing me she recognized no letters or letter sounds, and she was unable to write her name.
