Why I Hate My SUV

I hate my SUV. I gave up my little gas-sipping sedan when we got married.  That car, I loved. That car carried my babies and my receipts and emergency ballet flats stuffed under the seat.

BBC Dad | Parenthood Considered at Odds with Professionalism. But Why?

This is a guest post in a series of posts from Special Needs parents by Kathy Radigan. I’m a girly girl that was born to a mother and a family that never really appreciated nor indulged my passion for all things pink, sparkly, and shiny. Both my parents had the crazy idea that my sisters and I should grow up feeling that we were more than just pretty objects to be taken care of and admired. We were raised to […]
