Sometimes we just want to be a blanket burrito…and that’s ok.

My ears literally ring from the silence the moment my kids are asleep. It's like I've been standing right next to the speakers at a rock concert and the silence on the drive home is deafening.  Something occurs in that stretch of the night between dinner and bed. Is there a technical name for it?… Continue reading Sometimes we just want to be a blanket burrito…and that’s ok.
