Happy birthday to my youngest, who at age 3 is no longer a baby – which makes me a little sad. For those that haven’t met her, she is smart as a tack and more strong-willed than me and Wonderful Wife put together. She is also hilarious and disrespectful and loud and completely unfazed by social norms. She is awesome. Happy Birthday, Little Miss Thing!

Perspective is important

When I saw it was a rainy, grey day, I groaned and wanted to go back to sleep. When my kids saw it was a rainy, grey day they jumped and danced and sang and grabbed their new raincoats. Perspective is important.
