*Disclaimer: This post got unintentionally long-winded. It started out with me sitting down to write out my list of favorite moments from the past year and somehow inexplicably took a strange and 180° turn right out of the gate.

Much like all the boxes of ornaments in your basement dating back to your own childhood and the ugly ass Santa pillow that you continue to put out because your dear departed Grandma made it for you, today I’m dusting off and putting an oldie on display. Sure, this oldie is only a year (or […]

Thing 2 is pissed. For the past few years, she’s been anxiously waiting the day she can finally sit in the front seat of the car, and for the past few years we’ve told her she had to wait until she was 12. She turned 12 almost five months ago and we’ve done a pretty […]
