Feelings, Nothing More than Feelings

Last weekend, my six year old son told my husband, “Mommy doesn’t know how to do anything.”  Simon shouted this soul-crushing sentence to my husband as we biked around town, me with my son on a trailer bike attached to the back of my own.  Apparently, my caution before turning across a lane of traffic… Continue reading Feelings, Nothing More than Feelings
