I Don’t Want You to Sit Next to Me Either

The other day on Facebook a friend of mine mentioned how she hates to be seated next to a family with small children when she's looking forward to a nice quiet dinner. Oh really?

Just Tell Me, I’m Sorry, Kids Are Jerks

Friday was a rough day. The kind of day that makes you feel like you can't do anything right in the world of parenting. As far as the actual world, everything was just fine and dandy.

My son appeared out of nowhere going "Hey! What's in … Continue reading The Day the Grinch was Caught in Action
