Now with kids, I’m breaking every single promise to myself.
Here you go, Internet, one of my unfine moments. Use it to not error as I did.
Of all the gifts that a parent wants to give their child is the opportunity to share all that the world has to offer.
I haven’t said a word to anyone. What do I do?
For many women, finding the right shorts is a major concern.
I am the oldest and shortest of my brood. No question.

The beloved book and TV character celebrates milestone birthday.
A few months back, I wrote a story for the Omaha World-Herald about Skippyjon Jones.
The Skippyjon Jones children’s book series is wildly popular among tots and tykes. But during a library visit, his eyeball fell out of its socket, scaring dozens of children.

My 5-year-old son’s class is going on a field trip to see “Click, Clack, Moo” at the Rose Theater, 2001 Farnam St. I signed up to help drive and chaperone, but I confess I’m just as excited as Sean is to see this play. And he’s pretty excited.
