Is that a bird, butterfly or spaceship in the sky?

It’s a kite. Recently, we went for kite-flying with J, my brother and Dot. It has been so long since we last flew a kite. Anyway, I didn’t fly the kite that day. I was watching and observing Dot at play on the field. A child learns to know the world through the senses. She...
Being a mom takes on a new perspective

Being a mom takes on a new perspective

The transition from a pregnant mom-to-be to a real mom is tough. The learning curve was very sharp and there was no way I could just throw the towel and call it quits.
