Reese Lorraine Beatty 

Today, I became a first-time grandmother! Reese Lorraine Beatty was born at 2:57 a.m. on December 7, 2017 and weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces. No child was ever more loved right from the start.

My site is dedicated to this precious little girl and all the parents, especially hers, who are doing their best every day trying to raise happy, healthy, caring children. There is no more important work.

Every time I question the craziness and uncertainty in the world, I just have to look at that amazing little face and be reassured at the importance and meaning of life.

This blog is a compilation of previously published articles and new observations about raising children, and the world around us.

I hope you can relate to and enjoy these stories — Kathy
