There are no more normal families

I am drawing a simplified family tree for my son to show him how the cousins of my generation line up to the cousins of his generation. We get through most of it, and he seems to understand it all, even when I include the names of my step-siblings and their children. I thought that this last concept might be a bit confusing for him, since I got my step-siblings when I was already a teen and only saw them for a few weeks over the summers…

Adding to my husband's lifespan

My wonderful husband and I have been together for more than 20 years. (Not married for that long, but together.) When I tell people that number they look at me in shock and then ask if we were high school sweethearts. I am hopeful that their initial shock is because I look too young to have been with someone for 20 years and not shock for some other reason.…

Does Valentines Belong to a Woman or A Man? BOTH

The shortest month of the year has arrived, and we are less than 2 weeks away from what we observe as a day to display the love we have for our significant other. Department stores and retail establishments alike have already begun to market and advertise life sized teddy bears, giant boxes of chocolate…

The size of families

I drive a boy in our neighborhood to school in the mornings, and he often talks about his life at home with his brothers and step brothers. The stories are filled with rough housing, complaints that he doesn't have enough attention and how he hates being the youngest. My son (somewhat snarkily) counters the conversation with his views about being happy he is an only child.…

My partner in life

more extensive than mine. So while I could spend additional time learning how to do the maintenance he does for the house or acquiring his technical knowledge, instead I focus on how lucky I am that I have a partner in life who rounds out my skill set.…

The bedtime I've imposed upon you

My son knows a lot of things: He knows how to tell time (both analogue and digital), how our hemisphere is tilted closer to the sun in the summer, that he gets a break from school through most of June-August, and (of course) he knows how important sleep is.…

Spending time with the one you love

My husband and I try to have lunch together at least once a week. He and I are fortunate enough to work only a few blocks apart, and that Tuesday lunch is a treat. It is wonderful to see him in the middle of a busy working day.…

Love now = love later on in life

It must have been a particularly bad dream.



My son doesn't have bad dreams very often, but this one was awful enough for him to leave his bed, make his way down the stairs and traverse through the dark all the way to our bedroom. I woke at the sound of our door opening. He wasn't crying, but I did let him…

I don't watch enough TV

My husband and I don't have enough shared television shows. This is entirely my fault. I don't pick up new shows very frequently and so there is often a dearth of entertainment for us to watch together at the end of a long working day.…

The divorce list

We have all been to that wedding. You know the one. The one where you are trying very hard to be generally happy for your friend/relative and not say anything overly snarky, but - way down deep - you have a suspicion they are not going to make it as a couple. You don't want to be right, but you can't help how you feel. Then, after time passes and you hear word of the breakup, you have to bite your tongue and never admit to anyone that you…

Forgiveness In All Areas of Your Life

I've been spending a lot of time lately thinking about forgiveness and the impact it can have on your life and your relationships. Personally I've found that, while difficult, it can be so incredibly freeing! Looking back at the hardest times of my life, my turning point has always been when I've been able to let go…

Growing old together

I normally get dressed before my husband and he doesn't usually see me until he is also fully dressed. It is at that point that we realize we are dressed in similar colors.



Is this because we own too many of the same shades of clothing? Maybe. Maybe not. I'd like to think it is because he and I are in…

Where did you meet your match?

My Mother set me up with a guy once when I was in high school. He worked for her, and at the time I didn't realize I was being set up. It was well-intentioned, I have no doubt, but ultimately very weird and awkward for me. So let's not talk about that.



At some point, I tend to ask my married friends how they met their partner. And then they get to tell their origin story. Most of these tales have been honed over the years of the relationship to become coherent stories. I like the…

Finding love on the job

My son often tells me that when he grows up he wants to come and work at my job. He has plans to sit in the cube next to mine and be on my team. He also wants to help distribute candy when the team needs a little pick-me-up on rough days and have lunch with me every day.…

Valentine's Day Honesty

I'm annoyed with Valentines day. It just is too dramatic for my liking. The worst part is that it's dramatic in multiple ways. Whether a person expects a thoughtful gift and high level romance or the HATE VALENTINES DAY, IT'S A HALLMARK HOLIDAY.. blah blah person.. Or that you are single 364 days out the year. Yet if on Valentines day you don't have a date, it's some how the worst thing ever?

If you are only affectionate or thoughtful to your spouse  3 days a year. (Valentine's…
