A Dad’s Perspective: Three Lessons I’ve Learned From Raising a Two Year Old

I realized the other day – as my daughter screamed, “I want my breakfast, daaaddyyy!” while I was changing her poopy diaper – that I had entered a different realm of living. While I’m doing something for her, she’s already petitioning for the next thing… and the next. This is a strange reality. “I want [...]

I have always been so captivated by people. I LOVE to watch them and see what they are all about. Their mannerisms and behavior is something that can be very fascinating. It’s interesting to be able to see what makes us all different but also see the things that we can relate to.  So when […]
