Feeling Inadequate

Well, it has been a while, yet again I’ve had very little motivation to even sit down and write for the past week.

A Trip to the Zoo

There’s nothing like taking your child somewhere that theoretically should be enjoyable. I mean what child doesn’t enjoy looking at animals? My child. Now it’s not that she wouldn’t or didn’t have a nice time. But it wasn’t the conventional time you would expect to have as a parent. it wasn’t the experience I’d hoped for when she was born. But we knew so little...
