ASK Day

Today, June 21st is officially ASK Day.  ASK stands for Asking Saves Kids.  The campaign encourages parents to ask a simple question when their children go to play at another home “Is there an unlocked gun in your home?”  Pretty simple, right? I became a parent a few years ago, and I never thought about […]

Blowout For Dinner-

Blowout For Dinner?

My husband and I were in that newborn-first-child-we-can-still-do-everything-we-did-BEFORE-we had-a-baby-phase.  We were young and naive.  Well, I was young.  He was just naive.  {LOVE YOU BABE!}  So of course we decided to go to dinner.  Easy as a blowout pie, right?

What Were They Thinking-

What Were They Thinking?!

Do you ever see your child’s actions and wonder, WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!  I have those thoughts almost every single day.  It’s only when I start to remember how ridiculous I was when I was a kid that I realize people are weird.  Not only are kids weird, but people in general are weird.  So, to […]
