Have you ever heard of the fish hook? No, not a fish hook, THE fish hook. It’s when you hook your finger in someone’s mouth and jerk back as if they were a fish and you were a hook. It’s one of the worst things you can do to a person, it renders them completely
Tom has started riding his bike to work a few times a week. It’s all part of our overall goal to live frugally and stay healthy. Plus, it means less wear and tear on the car and it’s good for the environment. His goal is to cycle to work 2-3 times a week. The weather
A few weeks ago I went to my first post-pregnancy dentist appointment. I was nervous; I’d heard pregnancy can wreak havoc on your teeth. I was not, however prepared to hear that I had THREE cavities.

Two notes to accurately set the scene: 1) That small plate of chocolate does not represent the amount of chocolate consumed. The measurement was “brick”. We ate a brick of chocolate.

And how did he repay Mimi and Pops for their hospitality, kindness and generosity on Christmas?

Moments before Kanye and I started our performance, David was screaming his way to Santa’s naughty list. I’m dreading the day he sees people with REAL moves; someone like Usher, Justin Timberlake, or Amanda Giobbi. The moment he’s exposed to good dancing, I’m ruined.
But he loved the bows. Can you see the glitter on his face? It’s because his mommy let him get aholt of a gold glitter ribbon. Consequentially, he was a glitter baby for the rest of the day. And I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “aholt” isn’t a word. You’re thinking, “I can tell she
