A Birthday Wish

A few years ago, when my oldest turned four, I wrote him a little letter that turned out to be incredibly popular with my readers.

Two years later, for his sixth, I wrote him another one:


There are a few things in life I am simply not good at: Fractions, balancing a checkbook, and remembering to clean the litter box top the list. And, I'm ashamed to admit, letting you know how incredibly amazing you are is also up there.

I'm sorry.

One day, when you like girls and think I am totally lame, I'm going to show you this letter. And you may roll your eyes and walk away, but I know you'll read it:

4. It's a wonderful feeling to know I can trust you'll uphold and honor our rules when you're not in our house. (Maybe shouting at the top of your lungs that '"Y7" ratings are inappropriate' isn't the most ideal way to make new friends, but we'll work on that.)

5. I will honor your.. (jump to it)

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
