July 15, 2012 in All Posts, Laugh

They say that children teach us, not the other way around.  Whoever they are -they were right.

{Live} Our Holiday In Quotes

December 31, 2011 in All Posts, Laugh

I was nauseated for most of the holidays, which was great for me because I lost six pounds, but horrible because I couldn’t make or shop for presents and stocking stuffers or properly prep for all the festivities.  It would have been totally awful except that I have these wonderfully fond memories to laugh back […]

November 7, 2011 in All Posts, Parenting

In Clueless, my own personal bible, Cher defends her high school virginity saying, “Well, you know how picky I am about my shoes – and they only go on my feet.” I can relate.  Not just in the realm of fashion, but in all aspects of my life – including finding the right child care. […]

{Live} Survival Of The Fittest | Paul Smith Spectacles Review

June 21, 2011 in All Posts, Laugh, Parenting
