It's Not A Bribe
January 31, 2011 12:09 AM by Devon Alley
Every night, when I tuck my daughter into bed, I always ask her if she's had a good day. Occasionally, I'll even ask her what her favorite thing was about the day, especially if she seems to be having a difficult time finding something good about the Read More...
Struggles and Compromises - Going Back to Daycare
January 27, 2011 9:54 PM by Devon Alley
Going back to school after the holidays wasn't nearly as traumatic an experience for A. as going back to daycare. There were several days before school started that A. had to actually spend the entire day in daycare, and she was none-to-happy about this Read More...

I think I may be fighting some sort of impending illness. Several people (including my direct manager) are sick at work, and I'm feeling rather under-the-weather tonight. I have several things that I want to write about, including a Long And Intricate Read More...
Take-My-Daughter-To-Work Day
January 3, 2011 11:12 PM by Devon Alley
A. and I don't really agree as far as our opinions of her day care center establishment are concerned. I see them as extremely organized, amazing individuals, willing to work on the hard issues that matter with A. on a daily basis -- in short, I love Read More...
