Flappy Hands

I’m a working educational interpreter again! Huzzah! It has felt amazing to be back at work, even if it’s just part time. Part time is the sweet spot, y’all. It’s a lot of purpose with a little bit of commitment. I have not worked in a decade and SO much has changed. First and foremost, […]

She’s 3

It’s official. My darling sweet fun and obedient daughter is now a 3 year old *horror music* This is an ode to my daughter. I have to write it all down  before the 3 year old sucks the ‘early years’ out of my brain! She was such a perfect baby, minus the thrush experience we […]
