by googling “what did one paper towel roll say to the other”. Should I answer this question? Nah, I think my cheesiness would show itself. K is turning 6 on Saturday.

That I couldn’t see, you were always there beside me. I’m so sweet. I wrote that myself. Okay no I didn’t. I admit that I have a High School Musical song stuck in my head. That movie…. oh that movie… It’s been watched in my house many many times over the last few months. • [...]

LOVE them. Seriously… I love how clean they are. I love not having to keep them in my kitchen sink. I love that they don’t have the chance to get smelly. I love that I can use one for a single mess, then throw it away and use a new one for a new mess… [...]

–you have pee on your shorts and don’t notice until your hand happens to touch them. I should add, it’s my 9 month old baby’s pee… otherwise… yeah that’d be weird.  Should I be admitting this? E’s diaper apparently leaked because…. apparently I have not changed her all day. C’mon… you know you’ve done it…. [...]

Two words: another. birthday. That’s right. Today, along with many other people *is it just me or are there scores and scores of people born on May 7th?* is my sister’s birthday. So what am I going to do? Write her a poem. Yep. No, I’m kidding. That would be weird. I mean maybe not [...]

Dear K, I want you to know how beautiful you are. You are so beautiful. You have these big blue eyes, and the fairest, most beautiful skin. Your cheeks are tinged pink when you laugh, and you have 2 adorable dimples on the left side of your face: one in the middle of your cheek [...]

Gotta love blogs. G.o.t.t.a love ‘em. Here’s the thing about a blog: I can say whatever I want to say about whoever I want. Okay that’s probably a bit of an exaggeration there are things best left unsaid…err….. untyped…. but you get the picture. Today is my brothers birthday. I will omit his age at [...]
