Teeth Brushin’

Where did the weekend go? Probably the same place rhetorical questions go to die. Either or, I know at least forty-three percent of it was spent trying to avoid thinking about the fact the pool opens this week and I still need a swimsuit. But, [...]

Serves Me Right

A couple of days ago, the twins found a thirty-five count pack of envelopes in my room, opened it, and sealed every, last one. I now have zero envelopes. Ok, now that we’ve gotten last week’s parenting high point out of the way, [...]
