The real evils, indeed, of Emma’s situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself.

I so miss those times when my son was still a baby. Enjoy the moments because they fly by. As for the pictures, there was a discussion thread a couple years back that prompted me to post those; it had something to do with keeping your inner child alive. But no, they're not of my son. They're just fun random pictures that my sister had 'forward e-mailed' me. Except for the family; that's my mom and dad, sister, and baby me.

Impressive webpage, I haven't been able to look through much of it yet, but what I have seen I thought was wonderfully done. I am debating about shooting your link over to my girlfriend..

Hi, Alison. I spent some time checking out your site this morning. It's very impressive! I read 'The Perfect Housewife: A Great American Myth'. I went through that type of phase shortly after I quit my job to stay home to care for my baby boy (he's 14 now) and fully devote myself to family. It's a long story, but that phase nearly killed me. lol 

I'm going to have to read more of your articles.

Young guys

hey guys, I have been interested in the MKP for a few years now and even began pursuing my dream of attending a weekend. After many emails back and forth as well as a few phone calls with an influential guy there (who was very nice) I was politely told that the weekend is more for older guys and while there are annual meetings in my area, in which guys get together at a local church and further share and bond, because of the nature of these meetings (they discuss feelings and their deepest…See More
