RICH IN THOUGHT – Being Papa For Grayson

RICH IN THOUGHT – Being Papa For Grayson

 

After the excitement wore off when I first heard I was going to be a grandfather, I wondered if I was destined to be a loveable old man who wore a little fedora with a feather and plaid Bermuda shorts with calf-high dark socks in sandals.

Mommy Musings - Living the Words

Last week I shared my struggle as I prepared for my duo to return to school. I also acknowledged the necessity in letting them ‘fly’, thrive and just get back to learning. Those were true and wise (if I don’t mind saying so) words, but that doesn’t make them easy.

Breaking The Cycle

 

DEAR DIDI: We have a six-month-old male pit that we rescued from the shelter about three months ago. He is such a wonderful and sweet dog that we love to death. We have one issue though. When my husband comes home from work at night our dog greets him at the door enthusiastically and then rolls over on his back and pees!
