“Have you had a fantastic day?” The question came from the lady at Enterprise Car Rental. She was professional, beautiful and positively upbeat.

Bird watching had become the new rage for Z and me. It is intriguing, educational and outdoorsy. It also doesn’t require much energy which is a bonus for this mama because my butt is lazy. Or maybe it’s just tired…that sounds better. Either way, it’s the perfect activity for my little man and me to do together, so last spring I bought a few items to assist with this new adventure.

Writing_Ivan Prole_FreeImages_SerbiaHOW A SIX-YEAR-OLD SCHOOLED HIS MOM ON MOTHERHOOD

It occurred to me one night that it might be fun to get my son’s perspective on motherhood while he’s still little. So I interviewed him. (That’s normal, right?) I got a notebook and pen and sat at the kitchen table with him. I told him that I would like to interview him and then explained…  Read More
