One of Those Things

Anyone else have a Mother’s Day hangover this morning? I’m not talking about drinks though. Yesterday I wrote a short story about one of my experiences with sexual abuse and the way mothers try to hide from it. I sent it to my mom. And some other mothers in our family. Since I’ve had no reactions just yet (I think it’s a good story). I’d thought I’d post it in case it helps anyone else besides me.

That’s the Tooth!

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! With my late-talking son almost finishing another school year, I wanted to post what I sent my son’s teacher. She’s great! And my son’s school has a program which allows one educator to teach the same class of kids for 2 consecutive years.

Are you worried that you can’t pay your bills, even though you have a job? Well… I just lost my job, and I’m worried how I’m going to pay my bills. But I pranked my employer on my way out! Enjoy!

So I work for a company.... Okay, let me start again. I worked for a company called Grizzly Industrial. It's a pretty weird place. I got the job after my divorce, and Grizzly really kept me afloat through a tough custody/relocation case with my ex wife. Since parting ways with the company, I've since realized...

The Last Cookie

After a divorce, will you change the way you discipline your kids? How does a divorced dad deal out Rewards and Punishments when the landscape of parenting has changed?
