    Finally, the good-natured boss was compelled to call Smith into his office. "It has not escaped my attention," he pointed out, "that every time there's a home game at the stadium, you have to take your aunt to the doctor." "You know you're right, sir," exclaimed Smith, "I didn't realize it. You ... Read more

    Today was another challenging day! My new escape artist had a field day today, grabbing iPads and yanking on cords plugging them in, got into my normally locked closet, broke the hook to hang her coat and book bag on, and the list goes on. She never closed her eyes, never stopped babbling, and never... Read more
