• XFactor

    If my daughter doesn’t fall asleep soon I will have to read about the season finale of XFactor. We are watching Little Nut Brown Hare play in a meadow. Can you think of a worse name for a cartoon character? I can. His father is Big Nut Brown Hare. I adore the book “Guess How Much I Love You.” My daughter loves the cartoon, but I want to see if this young lady wins a $5 million recording contract. Her name is Carly Rose Sonenclar. She is only 13-years-old, yet her voice gives me goosebumps: Watch this video on YouTube

  • Bank Compliment

My husband and three boys laugh hysterically over farts, fart jokes, toys that make farting sounds, etc. My toddler is well, a toddler and thinks it’s funny to replace words with poop, poopie, pooper, etc. Well, I am joining their club for this post. Let me begin by saying I love me some Britney Spears. I think my girl went through some serious postpartum depression and never got the proper help. Thus, her mental breakdown.
