Lately when I am frustrated with him, I take a step […]

# 3 : Best Birthday EVER!

Sometimes life surprises me, and what I thought would be a bummer due to the pandemic, ends up being the BEST birthday ever!  Ian turned fourteen on April 18th and, like any parent, I wanted to make sure it was special.  As per usual, I purchased the gifts, planned the meal (ok, we ordered Dominos), […]
