“What is a kink?”  I looked up from my magazine to find one of my children hovered over my bed asking me this question.  I said I didn’t know what she meant.  Then she proceeded to tell me about a boy who asked her if she liked to get her kink on.  He asked her... Read more »

Yeah for Loving Day!

As I was trolling facebook in the wee early morning hours before the birds got up, I came across a post on someone’s wall.  It was all about her relationship with her biracial lover.  But wait, I was confused.   She was Hispanic and he was white, a.k.a. probably a mutt, mixture of german, irish, Swedish,...

Goals. Slay em.

Couples Goals!  Mom Goals!  She’s goals!  Body Goals!  They’re goals! I was hearing about these goals over and over and over again.  For pretty much the past year.  From the mouths of my teens.

Okay so it’s been a couple of months since this phenomenal catch phrase was first spoken out of the mouth of a troubled teen girl appearing on Dr. Phil for help.  It has only just come to my attention however, so that makes it new and current and definitely relevant and something I definitely want...
