Fun Facts

  • My parenting motto:

    Parenting is guiding little people from childhood to adulthood. If I raise them to be healthy, functional adults, they’ll be able to work through all the ways I messed them up in counseling.

  • Proudest parenting moment:

    I gave my son a child-sized broom for his 3rd birthday and when he saw it, he grabbed it, singing, “Oooooh! I love it!”

  • My guilty pleasure:

    Donuts are my gateway food.
