Come Fly With Me

Tomorrow I’ll be rising at the ass crack of dawn so I can get on a plane bound for Chicago for an extended weekend with my mom and sister. To travel with me is an experience in Type-A and slightly neurotic behavior, especially air travel. In the week leading up to taking a trip, I’m.. ....more

Yoga Poses Don’t Talk Back or Why As Parents We Should Be Kinder to Ourselves
