    on Jun 17, 2010

    on Jun 16, 2010

  • Animals with People-Like Qualities
    on Jun 15, 2010
    My 14 year-old cat is a lot like my 11 year-old daughter. Anytime I walk in the room, he has to follow me to see what I am doing. If I move my hand, he follows it. If I make a loud noise, he perks up to see what the ruckus is about.  When I give...

  • Would You Like Fries With That Headache?
    on May 17, 2010
    Everyday is like groundhog day. We wake up, get dressed, get the kid ready for school, remind the kid to get lunch, get socks, put a belt on, get in the car ... the list goes on. In the evening, the routine is not much different: pickup the kid,...
  • Hello?! Do You Hear Me?!
    on May 16, 2010
    Children will often tell you the one thing they want, but never get from their parents, is to be listened to. I am unsure what children have to say that is so important, but what I do know is this: no matter how difficult it is to do, you must always...
