The Mom Stop: Time to kick clutter to the curb

By Lydia Seabol Avant More Content Now. Tue, 15 Jan 2019

My grandmother was a meticulous homemaker.She was a skilled cook who was particularly adept at entertaining. She had an amazing garden out back, where she grew most of the produce she and my grandfather ate during the warm weather months.

When you’re a woman who happens to be 6-feet-tall and sometimes wear heels, you [...]

I was watching the news about former President George H.W. Bush’s death last week when my 9-year-old daughter walked in the room.“The president died?” she asked, worried.“No, not the current president, but a former president, the one who was president when I was your age,” I told her.“Whoa. And he was still alive?” she asked, inferring that my childhood must have been eons ago. I suppose in the political world, it really was.I was [...]
