Is This the Real Life?*
(Is this just fantasy?)* . . . This morning started in ordinary fashion: soft baby grunts, a bottle feeding, and our son happily kicking about in our bed, trying to snag Daddy’s iPad from the nightstand. (I also snuck a bite of raw cookie dough from the fridge at about 4 AM.) And later on,…
I’m still here, yo! And doin’ just fine. . . . Hello, Dear Reader. And greetings from my shockingly somewhat-cleared-off dining room table, where a fresh iced coffee patiently sits within reach. I’m in fruit-punch pink sweatpants. My lips are annoyingly chapped. (takes a deep breath) Blogging is a funny thing: Really, it’s a strangely…
‘Cuz it’s the first day of the rest of our lives, right? . . . Hi. (waves) Today is my first official day of being a full-time, stay-at-home mom. And despite the whole working remotely thing happening for months on end, it feels pretty good to be 100% done. Close the book. Wave goodbye. It’s…

Let’s Be Friends.
(Unless you’re a close-minded jerk. Then I’ll take a hard pass.) But I’m sure you’re cool, right? Hello, Dear Reader. Maybe you’re a follower, or maybe you’ve stumbled upon my cauldron of creative musings and are asking yourself just what this site is all about. What’s a SnapDragon? I am SnapDragon, friend. Allow me to…
Because sometimes it’s the only way to get shit done. You all know I’m a teacher. I delight in the idea of back-to-school sneakers, a new lunchbox, and untarnished notebooks ready for use. And while I tried not to assign homework. . . well, sometimes it just had to be done, friends. So for the…
