Who You Really Want to Be

I recently told you about my baby daughter’s new activity, which we descriptively call the Yell and Run. Aside from getting me out of breath inappropriately in public places, it has been teaching me about where I need to be more me in my life as of late. The reality is that I’ve spent a […]

The Yell and Run

Baby Lucia is getting big. And, in one of her “I’m a big girl now” activities, she is all about the running. But it’s not just any old running. It’s running while yelling. We call it the Yell and Run and it’s about as complex as it sounds, and about as complex as an 18-month old […]
