The one assignment I need to work on as a parent for back to school

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

I’m experienced now, I’m not writing about the sobs. The Eldest goes back to school next week. Senior Kindergarten. She’s a big kid now she tells me, no longer the youngest in her entire school.

About this site

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, there was a man with one wife and two girls. He loved all three of them equally. I’m that man.

I’m a dad who is certainly no better than any other man is at being a parent and that’s why I like to share our stories. I, like you, figure things out on the fly. So if I can share with you a trick for something you may experience down the road, I’d like to do that.
