My Emotions

(3)
December 28, 2019

Note: I haven’t written anything in a while. This will probably answer why. If not, then I am ok with that and you and us and all. A lot of kiddly things written focus on children’s emotions. How to deal with them, how to embrace them, how to talk about them, etc. I find dealing… Read More ›

Happenstance Happy Dance

Picking up the littlest from daycare the other day provided me with a healthy reminder to check my assumptions. “Before you check out, I have an incident report to review with you.” the daycare employee said to me. Oh shit. Oh shit. Oh shit. My brain screamed. I turned my head. I squinted at the… Read More ›

Free Grinch

I really didn’t expect much from the newest Grinch film. Sure, it had Babycakes Mumblecrunch (Benjamin Cumberbatch) voicing the Grinch, but I really wasn’t aware of much else. I just assumed it was another Christmas money grab. When I was approached to review it and get some stuff, I said, “Sure, I like stuff”. And… Read More ›
