I appreciate your interest and really want to work with you.
Being a mama is hard, hard, hard.
When they are acting up, they have a hard time paying attention - in class, to the rules, to their own safety.
And then, in a moment, his "together" cord will snap and he'll lash out - somersaulting, hurling himself around in giddy silly aggression.

But in both roles, I'm often more than frustrated. I rounded the corner onto Division and headed past Stumptown, and knew I could keep going.
I gave a little bit of cash in the great Weblogs, Inc.
Where do we draw the line between his obligations at home and his desire to save humanity?
He'd have to switch to the National Guard.
