  • LOL at The Littlest Angel

    When considering a Children’s Theatre of Charlotte (CTC) production, I don’t usually ask myself whether or not it will be “good.” CTC is awesome.   So awesome, that if I had a million dollars, I would write them a large check.   The question I ask is whether or not I think my kids would enjoy the show.

  • A Whole Latta Fun

    The leaves crunched and twigs snapped under our feet Saturday as we strolled around Historic Latta Plantation to take part in their “Plantation Christmas” celebration.      The outing was special for one reason in particular: it was a rare mother-son adventure.   I really can not remember the last time the two of us – just us – did something fun together.

    Man, when was the last time I shaved my legs? Good Lord, the kids need their toenails clipped! I wonder if that kid’s cough is contagious… Who is that family with the perfect kids listening to everything? I swear to God, my son has ADHD, I don’t care WHAT his teachers say…   These were the thoughts entering my head to the count of four and exiting-two-three-four at a...
