The Easter/Lava Lamp Fiasco

You might be wondering what Easter has to do with a lava lamp. Read this new story by Kris Fino to find out! This Easter for us was like almost any other holiday…..rushed and chaotic.  We want to do the best we can for the 8 year-old we have at home.  Now, we knew Easter […]

Children and Divorce

Having An “Only Child”

I never intended on becoming a parent. It’s a long story for another time, but having children was not in my plans.  Then at 40 years old I became pregnant, not planned, and my world came crashing down.  My husband and I weren’t married at the time.  All that ran through my head was “how […]
