Chronicles Of Baby Cassidy

Balancing the role of Mom, Career Woman & Friend. And learning more and more about myself as I go.

Show me a child and I will show you their parents

A taxi almost swerved into us. I panicked and shouted, “YOU IDIOT!”. I heard a slightly softer but firm voice that said, “No. You must not say that. You must be kind and loving always.” It was Cassidy.
