Hi. I wanted to write a blog about mistakes, the sort of mistakes that might keep a concerned parent awake at night. The kind of mistakes that elicit an audible groan of regret at 12:30 am. I’m not the only one who has those am I? My children are very different from each other, but they are united in their dislike of me screaming at them when frustration takes over. I feel good about bringing them together at least. As most parents say, I was unprepared for how hard it is to be the best person I can be so that they may do the same. The girl on the right in the picture above is my lovely niece Heather. The innocent looking bunny on the left is HR. I am forbidden to use her name in this blog.
