Life From the Dark Side of Aurora is my attempt to chronicle the good and bad of parenthood, of my life.
Darth Vader, the epitome of evil. Beautiful princess Aurora, classically good. And my amazing daughter K, is the most wonderful blend of both, sweet and salty. So it should come as no surprise that her play is exactly the same. Darth Vader is all too often forced to play in the doll house with Aurora, Ariel, or any number of princesses. Even within her own self, I see the natural battle of good and evil. The very same battle we all have somewhere within us.
Some days it's all Aurora. But most days, the dark side manages to slither its way in. Really, it seems to be how you handle the dark that makes all the difference in the outcome.
