A Simple Story

“Mom, Mom, tell me again!!”
I smile, “Honey, I’ve told you this story twice already on this trip”
“Again, please Mom!”
It’s only been a thirty minute car ride but she wants to hear one of her stories again for the third time. I don’t mind telling it again, it’s one of my favourites, but I put on a show, let out a long sigh and say, “Okay, honey, but this is the last time today ”

Be Quiet

Although, I’ve only written a few articles or stories in my lifetime; each time I have a story in mind, I test it out on my family. They are given a brief outline and then because they are part of the stories I have in mind, I ask them if what I am recalling from our real life stories is accurate and whether they mind if they are included in the story. I did this last Friday in

Children Singing

I tried to think of a favourite childhood

It’s a

Oh, You Thought I Was Done!?

“Oh, you thought I was done!? No, we still have something to do … Shhh, first we need to make sure no one is here. Go look around the corner and check.”

April: “Okay Mom, I don’t see anyone.”

“Okay, now … on your mark!”

April: “What, why, where … what are we doing?!!”

“We’re racing to the Director’s office and back, but the only way we can do it is to skip.”

April: “What!! No. I’m

What Happened Here?!

Do you ever ask yourself that question? Do you look at what’s going on around you and ask ‘What Happened Here … How Did This All Happen?’ I ask it occasionally, and at a leadership dinner the other night the question came up again.

It all started in 2005 when I started looking for daycare for my youngest daughter when she was almost a year old. Like most parents I worried about the character of the people that
