Did You Know I Don't Actually Exist?

The Returning Lego Piece

My son, Bodhi, was showing my older son, Kaleo, a Lego piece that was chewed up by our dog. I heard Kaleo say, “Whoa! How did that get there?” When I asked what was going on, Kaleo told me that he had thrown that piece in the trash a month ago. It somehow reappeared. He said it was the same piece because it had the same markings on it. I said, “Maybe it stuck to your hand when you threw it away.”He said, “No. I saw it land in the trash.”I said, “Maybe a leprechaun did it.”Bodhi said, “Stupid leprechaun!”...more

Too Pretty (For My Mom)

My mom was a dear, sweet lady.  Loving, yet quiet and reserved – a lot like me (yeah, right).  She held deep religious beliefs and lived by those her whole life.  My mom always encouraged me and let me know that she valued and loved me.  That’s not to say that we didn’t have some awful times – ah, the teenage years – but I always knew my mom loved me and I loved her.  My mom was not much of a disciplinarian; that was left to my dad and, actually, to my grandmother who cared for me as my mom was one of the few moms working outside the home back in the 60’...more
