Each of my stepdaughters are non-stop chatterboxes, but if you had to determine which is the fastest, Stepdaughter MORE »
Last week I posted a story about telling my 9 year-old stepdaughter that Santa Claus didn’t really exist. Now I’m going to tell everyone why he actually does. This weekend, my wife shared with me a story about a single mother named Sharon that she knows in East Texas. Sharon has two children, a son and MORE »
