Coaching voice is a very real thing, and it is several octaves higher than your normal voice.
Get out of bed and stay away from the phone. I am aware that this is much easier said than done, but I’ve been there, and hurtful words won’t make the hurtful actions disappear. Breathe in, breathe out, move on.
You can call me for anything.
I’ve asked myself this question countless times.
Hmm… I wonder what’s in the pantry…
I was that woman who, rather proudly, didn’t want children.
1. The O’clock Blues
When I was a kid, I wanted to take my doll outside. My mother told me I couldn’t because it would be ruined if I left it there overnight.
While this might have been the most-brazen example of poor parenting in a public place – which I have ever personally witnessed – it was one of the many similar situations I have seen play out in a restaurant.
You say I will never know the joys of children, and therefore my life is incomplete? I say you’ll never know what any new year of your life would have been like without children. You are not better than me. I am not better than you. We are just different.
