Renewing my vows

Um, yeah, not those! come on… For the record, I don’t believe any of the parenting experiences which I share in my blog are necessarily unique. What I mean is that all parents have kid issues, I’m just sharing mine and my perspective. I vow to my kids; not literally you see, but in my […]
