Someone I love is being impersonated on Facebook.In order to limit further exposure, I’m going to call my friend Sally. An “impostor” has set up a Facebook account using Sally’s name and her personal photos. This impostor makes regular updates by posting pictures of Sally’s children (and other people in her life) and referring to them by their real names while making up false information about them.

When you look at me, I still get that giddy feeling and butterflies in my stomach like the glorious day we met. ...more
It's the end of another school year.At our home that means an onslaught of performances, recitals, and other end-of-year achievements.For my Facebook friends it means an onslaught of sappy (read: braggy) status updates. I could put an obligatory "I'm guilty of" in front of my admission that I talk about my kids A LOT. But I won't, because I don't. Feel any guilt, that is....more
