EG Parent Award #65

I am in a fair amount of pain, with a suspected broken wrist (scaphoid fracture).     Right now, I have a lot of empathy for any parent who is suffering. Broken bones, gastro bouts, head lice…  But nothing beats Children Live Action Shows. They are loud. They are bright. They […]
