A single parent working multiple low-wage jobs doesn't have free time, y'all. Free time is wealth.
Re: last tweet. Many interpret "rich" as "large bank balance." Rich also means "has free time to work on side startup."

Learning the hard way thru @thinkup: constant, iterative "it gets better" releases don't get the attention a single massive reveal commands.
I love watching my 2-year-old celebrate her belly fat in nothing but a diaper with zero self-consciousness.

My toddler just threw a spoon in the toilet, chewed on a live wire, and tried to drink out of a beer bottle she fished out of the recycling.
