What I Share
"Sharing is hard!" So says my four-year-old. But we share snacks, toys, blankets, and a love of dancing. I've been known to share recipes, money (charitable donations to legit organizations and a Street Sheeter, if I can spare it), a cab, books, clothes, and in desperate situations, a toothbrush.
