Make a career decision

Mama had great stories. My favorite was the only one I asked often for her to repeat. It has become something of an anthem in my life.

Discipline is easier said that done

My daughter takes after her father in nearly every respect, especially when it comes to the traits and characteristics my husband exhibited as a child. From her sandy blonde hair to her blue eyes and left-handedness, Reese and Noell are two peas in a pod. I'd even go so far as to say she gets her fiery temperament from her dad, although I'm sure he'd say it's from me.

What you see isn't always what you think you're getting

About once a week I go food shopping for my mom. Without a doubt, ice cream is the No. 1 item she requests. Bread, milk and chocolate syrup are also high on her list.

Senate bill protects coastal treasure

Day 15 (Feb. 3) - After a short weekend, we were back in session with three bills on the calendar, including Senate Bill 296, a bill that sets the acreage limit of developable land on Jekyll Island. This bill is the result of many hours of work by the Jekyll Island Authority members and other interested parties and is a great compromise that ensures this coastal gem will continue to be a treasure for many years to come.

Parents, nip biting in the bud

My 21-month-old daughter, Reese, is sweet, gentle and trusting. My husband and I have gone to great lengths to teach her not to express her emotions through toddler-like acts of violence - hitting, kicking and biting. As a result, she's mild-mannered and happy-go-lucky. So, it's easy to understand why I'd be particularly aggravated at the fact another child at Reese's day care seems to be working hard to undo all of our teachings.
