  • When you are a dog owner, you start to notice a shift in the hierarchy of your home.

    Teenage fans have talked nonstop about the film adaptation of the Suzanne Collins books, but I wonder if they grasp the philosophical applications or the sheer horror of what’s taking place.

  • I volunteer with teens at Severns Valley Baptist Church and they have an affinity for cake pops and cake balls. The last time I brought the treats to an event, they were gone in five minutes.

    Another volunteer in the student area once called cake pops “magic on a stick.”

  • Relax, I tell myself.

    Don’t nitpick, I tell myself.

    But I have such a difficult time letting my 3-year-old boy just be a 3-year-old boy.

    He’s silly and rambunctious and I love all of that about him. But as his mother, it’s my job to rein him in when I can. To keep him from jumping off the arm of the sofa or to keep him from hanging the upper half of his body out the open window of his upstairs bedroom.
