Hey! I have an AWESOME idea! Take that broccoli you were going to feed your kids tonight and soak it in RoundUp– let it sit for 30 days. Now rinse it off, you know, like you would if you were getting ready to cook it and feed it to your child. What? No? You don’t

The Commotion You Know

  Isaiah’s tennis teacher is a saint. He specializes in teaching 4-8 year olds tennis. Enough said. As the mother of an 8-year-old I can personally vouch for how difficult that must be. Oh wait – I forget we are assuming that child is typical. But my child is not typical, and this class includes

So yesterday I’m panicking.  What if there’s no more?  Here I said I was going to do this regular feature, cause my husband is pretty darn entertaining.  And by 8:30am, this morning, this is all I had: Husband looking at the mail yells to me from across the kitchen “Where’s this from?” (yes he even
