And not just because I had a surprise visitor this week from someone I haven't seen in over 2 years I think: my period! I'm thrilled because it means my hormones and my body are starting to work again as they're meant to. It also explains the ne... Read more

I feel like I've betrayed my daughter. I feel like she has spent her life being rebuffed and rejected by her father, at times her paternal grandparents, friends, teachers, and that now I've added to that long list of hurt. I must keep reme... Read more

Sigh. I have to admit, much as it pains me to, that when I drop my daughter off at her school at 8am on a Monday morning - knowing that I will be home alone until I pick her up on Frida at 2:45pm- I breathe a massive sigh of relief and fee... Read more
