Misty Mathews

In 2011, I had a baby, lost my dad, saw my town destroyed by a tornado, managed PPD and PPA and started cloth diapering. And life is still good, even if I haven't managed to smile through every second of it.

No, Noah, There's Not a Santa Claus

In the 1890s, a little girl named Virginia wrote a letter to the editor of the New York Sun, saying that her friends told her Santa Claus didn’t exist, seeking reassurance from the newspaper because her daddy told her that if it was in the Sun, then it was true.
