I am a high school English teacher, and mother of two charming little ones of my own. I teach in a high poverty urban charter school, while I live in a typical American suburb that has frequently been rated one of the safest cities in the country. It is a paradox I struggle with constantly, but it is my life.
My sister had her baby today, which makes me an aunt. It also gives Vinny and Tiana their first first cousin. Beautiful Isabella Newbill was born at 1:40p.m., 6 pounds 13 ounces, 19.5 inches. She is beautiful. She has her mommy's lips.
