    Loved reading the article about tipping. I’m definitely not tipping bartenders enough and tipping way to much for take out. Always look forward to your Friday posts!

    I am so, so, so terrified of sexual abuse. I feel like given the number of children this actually happens to, it seems almost unrealistic to think that mine can make it through their childhoods unscathed. Thanks for posting these tips.

    Thanks for the link, Kate!

    That April Fool’s prank was crazy right? Steve was like, “I WILL NEVER MAKE A KID ANSWER THEIR PHONE ON SPEAKER IN CLASS.”

    Thank you for the link with advice on how to talk to our kids. I felt like it might be too early to start talking to my almost 3 year old girl, but then I would never forgive myself if something happens and I didn’t do everything I could to try to protect her, especially when she’s not with me. We will be focusing on the correct terms for anatomy this week. We have also been working on her saying when she doesn’t want to be “touched” (which mainly means she doesn’t want us to hug her when she’s mad at us) but I am very proud of her when she screams at me “stop touching me!!!!”. The very notion of any of this gives me a horrible feeling in my heart, but it’s something that needs to be done.
