Sometimes I’ve found myself wondering, who am I exactly? What is it that makes me, me? In my younger days, I thought that I knew exactly what I was all about, but youth sometimes plays tricks on you and makes you think that the world is a much smaller place than it actually is. As my world grew, so many things began to change and I began to see things through different eyes. Our race, gender, education level, social class and so many other elements make us who…Continue

After two intense weeks of tantrums, screaming, flopping, crying and whining, my kids have finally had a language breakthrough. For the past four days or so, they have not only been pointing at objects and telling me what they are, but they have been connecting abstract ideas together, using adjectives and nouns to specify their meaning, and using verbs and nouns to create basic sentences and to tell me what they are doing.
They’ve got the command down pat.
