Your five-year old keeps having melt-downs over small incidents. Your ten-year old has stomach aches every day. And your 15 year-old plays video-games until three in the morning.

We’ve all experienced a summer evening outside ruined by relentless mosquitos. Eventually we realize that no amount of swatting will stop the onslaught, and that we’ll die of exhaustion before we ever smash enough to make a difference.

Just the other day I found myself at the shoe store buying ballet shoes for my daughters. I don’t know a woman on earth that can be at a shoe store and not “just look” for her own size. So next thing I knew, there I was, trying on shoes for myself. On the bottom […]
