And really?  I am not crazy, I have teenagers.

I used to think that the hardest part of motherhood was toddlerhood. I was sure it became easier as they grew older. I was wrong…


Go over and say hi!  Let them know that I am not writing into the void.  It would be great to see some familiar faces over there.
