I mentioned it a few weeks ago, but I’ll say it again, Caidin is going through a challenging growth period. This isn’t a physical one; it’s one that has elements of spiritual awareness, emotional growth, mental awareness and add to […]

Every so often Caidin goes through phases where he needs to test out and try on the behaviors of others. He happens to be in one of those phases right now. Now, if you have kids, you might be thinking, […]
