Today, I am writing this in on my mobile phone while my son is undergoing his Board of Review to become an Eagle Scout.

Columnist Kym Seabolt on parenting: "I am raising adults — not children. If my children were to stay children all their lives, I would have done things a lot differently. I would have worried less about character and their ability to make it on their own."

The good(ish) news is that GirlWonder is learning to drive! This is probably just a defense mechanism since we keep leaving her places.

Seabolt celebrates her son's 18th birthday.

I had cookies for dinner last night. Who over the age of 4 does that?

Today, autocorrect on most devices has made it easy to pretend that spelling (and proofreading) doesn’t matter.

I swear 15 years of selfless — and entirely decent — parenting and I will probably be remembered for the time our daughter went to her sporting event alone, was locked out of her own home and ended up sleeping on a table in a (semi) public place.

Nearly 20 years together, and looking forward to many more.

Sometimes making a mess is worth the memories.

It's funny how the things we loved can one day become the things we can no longer stand the sight of.
