No, this is not going to be a post about the British royal family…though I have been keeping up with the gossip online. “Megexit” is oddly fascinating, but who has time for that?

I am the mother of two fine sons and a pretty awesome husband. We raised them to be good men. They are kind, loving, secure and confident, but not arrogant.
