On the Eve of Your First Day of Kindergarten

To my dear sweet girl on your very first day of school, Welcome to the wonderful world of kindergarten! I knew this day would come, but for some reason it always seemed so far off. I know it’s such a cliche, but  it truly does seem like only yesterday that you were a tiny baby in my […]

Kid-Friendly Rap + Hip Hop. Yes. You Read That Correctly.
