My friend Nicole sent me a screenshot of an ad for pumpkin spice cereal. Now, I don’t eat cereal. I haven’t eaten cereal since I discovered the quarter-cup of sugar I mixed in with the two drops of milk to coat the cereal wasn’t exactly the best choice for a healthy breakfast.
Two years ago, when my mom suffered a debilitating stroke that left her unable to live by herself anymore, my husband suggested she move in with us. Knowing that my mom would be requiring a lot of my time, he willingly took on the lion’s share of the activities for our two daughters.
