As I turn the pages of our family photo albums, I see countless pictures of our children growing up.
Most of the shots capture moments of happiness or achievement: my daughters are laughing on care-free holidays under azure summer skies, or clutching a medal, holding a certificate, winning a race.
These albums, stored in a memory chest I have created for my family, are a record not just of my children's happiness and achievements, but my own as well. I love to look at the pictures of us, it's a sort of proof that I'm living the 'parental dream'. Or that's what I thought.
Parenting - Interesting study for review. Let me know your thoughts.
A recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Virginia and George Washington University, has found that “it’s the quality of the parenting that creates a psychologically healthy child, not the sexual orientation of the parents”.

There are many practical reasons for your children to rejoice in the fact that they are Children of Gays (COGS), and college admissions is one of them.

They must sell themselves. And the admissions essay is their one opportunity to communicate their unique selling proposition—their platform.
Okay, I want to start this post by stating that the person about whom I am writing was very sweet and I am sure meant absolutely no harm. However...
About two to three times weekly, I take my 14-month-old son for a morning stroll down to Peet's Coffee. I find Peet's to be much better than Starbucks, but I shall leave that topic for another discussion. Anyway, the stroll is about one mile in each direction, and it gives us some time outside before his morning nap. Generally, I take some fruit and a yogurt for him, and I order a muffin and a dry cap. This morning was no different.
