posted by Catherine Connors

I don’t get outraged about a lot of things. It takes a lot of energy to get outraged, and I don’t have a whole lot of energy to spare, what with wrangling two manically spirited children and training for half-marathons […]

Wordless Wednesday: Even Princes Need A Potty

posted by Catherine Connors

(What? That frilly get-up is so totally princely, if we’re thinking princes circa 1492. Totally.) (I’ve missed two days of training because of a terrible, sinus-and-eardrum-busting head cold. Tomorrow – fingers crossed – the fairy wings go back on and […]

There But For A Rocking Chair: On Love and Fear and Keeping Our Children Safe
