I was one of the last of my friends to have kids, so I haven’t had the chance to be around many newborns, since my youngest grew out of the baby stage. I’ve been totally fine with that; one stepdaughter and two that grew inside of me are more than enough. To top it off, […]
I’m not a winter person. I’m even LESS of a winter person when I’m struggling with pneumonia. Being a parent with all of these things happening can suck.
I can already see people getting their hackles up, before they’ve read past the first line. Elf on the Shelf?! Whatever you have to say, you’re wrong! Right?

Okay, I’m sorry. I’m sorry things got crazy enough this summer that I abandoned whoever is still reading my poor neglected blog during the month of August…and part of September. Never fear, though! I am back and have a LOT to say. Well, I’m sure I have something to say, but I’m not going to […]
