How I Met Your Father: Más Sangría!

Lucia’s latest trend is to start every sentence with when I grow up.  She sees me changing clothes, and immediately tells me when I grow up, I’ll wear a bra.  We are having a glass of vino and she’ll follow with when I grow up, I’ll get to drink some wine. I am putting on... Read more »

Mixing Business with...Kids

Last week, I was on a business trip for eight days; however I was lucky enough to be able to bring my family with me.  Even though I was going to be working 16-18 hour days, even just a little time with them was priceless to me.    So Ken was going to be on... Read more »

Milestones & Disappointments

Even though Dylan was now officially our son, during the 15-day appeal period after court we could see him only during our allotted two hours of daily visitation. You would think that, having been through this routine every day for two months, those last 15 days would have been a breeze. In truth, they were... Read more »
