After I became a parent the channels moved towards more kid-appropriate shows (even though my ears bled when hearing an auto-tuned song on the Disney Channel). Now […]

A Letter to My Daughters Absent Father

You Don’t Know What You’re Missing :: A Letter to My Daughter’s Absent Father

“Sorry” is a word frequently used in this world. So common, in fact, that unless actions back it up, it’s practically useless.

The other day, I was driving my 14 year old daughter somewhere and it hit me…where did my little girl go? She was sitting next to me in the passenger seat looking at her phone while singing lyrics to the song that was playing. I began to think back to when she was a baby. The […]

How Motherhood Forced Me Out of PeoplePleasing
