Guest Post: Coffee + Crumbs

  Today I'm over at Coffee + Crumbs with an essay called "Mind the Gaps." Here's an excerpt:

I often find myself parenting the little girl inside of me, trying to fix the gaps and heal the wounds of my own childhood. This is why cool, summer mornings make me feel like I should take my kids on a walk and teach them the names of trees as my mom did. It’s why I hate sending my son to his room alone when he’s upset because I remember sitting in my room after stomping off, wishing my mom would come comfort me.
