When taking the kids to camp this morning, an old Bryan Adams song popped on the radio and BAM! I was gone in my head, motivating Toots to finally ask, “Was this your prom song?” Despite wondering how a nine-year-old could make that immediate assumption (repeated High School Musical viewings?), I had to acknowledge that […]
