Re: LOL The FUN never ends....

You are such a great writer! I love reading your stories, but I hate that you actually have to experience them, too.

Re: Letting children fail

Thanks. She moped yesterday. She's better about messing up that opportunity today. The good news is that it's not a permanent failure. I know, the boy knows, and she knows. She can do better in...

Re: Help, need assistance and guidance, please. Mother in law.

Re: Help, need assistance and guidance, please. Mother in law.
