Toddlers on Heels

My two year old has been wearing my heels ever since she started walking.  Actually, she’s got her own one-inch heels collection, thanks to the many costumes and costume sets we’ve accumulated here at home.  Role-playing is a favorite activity in this household, especially since my daughter is now recognizing her ability to “pretend” she is […]

That Tugging Feeling

I felt it that morning when I woke.  I had slept through the night.  That meant my toddlers dreamt of nice, silly things.  An uninterrupted night happens rarely as a cry or two usually gets me out of bed around 5 o’clock most days just before dawn.  Or at 3 o’clock.  Or both.  That morning when I […]

On Change, Part 2

It’s crippling.  And it definitely takes a lot for me to admit.  But it’s true.  I have an uncanny disability to stick to something.  I can’t stay on track.  I can’t finish many of the things I start.  I can’t deliver on personal endeavors.  I can’t give myself what I want.  How else can I […]

Guard Your Manhood

It makes me chuckle a little bit.  The notion of “manhood.”  Tough.  Unbreakable.  Very…..manly, I suppose. I’ve only seen the commercial once.  I didn’t even know it was really an issue for men.  Apparently, bladder leakage affects roughly “23 million men, including one in five men over 60,” according to adage.com.  If you’re a female […]

In the World of Success

The intimidation I felt today was innocent, almost childlike.  Palms damp from overactive pores.  Body tingly from rabid nerve endings.  Pulse rate just a tad elevated from the anticipation.  I have to admit I was nervous in a way that I hadn’t felt in a while. I was invited by a friend to attend her […]

On Change, Part 1

Do people change? Not from wanting a certain type of car or switching a career in medicine to that of music.  I’m talking about a deep-rooted change, one that sits beneath the psyche.  A change that resonates and rattles the bones of one’s being.  Morals.  Values.  Core personal beliefs.  Your internal being.  Your inner self.

It Could Happen To Whom?

What could happen?  2014 could.  Let me tell you how it happened. There are two stories to tell.  The first one happened over the course of four years.  It’s a love story quite like most.  Girl meets boy.  Boy likes girl.  The plot quickly thickens, though, as we find out that boy was at the […]
