I'm a mother, a woman, a dog trainer, a couch potato, a wanderer, a motherless mom... Come join me and my multiple personalities as I try to make sense of this thing called "parenting" while trying to maintain my sanity and not spill my wine in the process.
Last night I did what I ordinarily do around eleven o’clock. I shut down my laptop computer and put it away, then closed the book I was reading and set it on the lamp stand next to the sofa. I brought my water glass and my wine glass into the kitchen and put them in the dishwasher. While my husband went outside to smoke his last cigarette for the evening, I climbed the stairs and readied myself for bed.
