No really, it is literally crap right now. We are in the thick of potty training our twins, and it has been an entire month of human feces and tears… my tears, not theirs. Why did this seem so much easier with my first two daughters?  Oh right, because it WAS easier.  The first reason […]

Popular Songs That Can Just Die Now

I’d like to think that music is in my blood.  My dad has been a drummer for half a century, maybe more.  He still plays to this day with his band of jammin’ grandpas (adorable, I know.)  My brother is a croonster in Colorado, (shameless plug Robby Overfield- check him out!  He is so amazing.) […]
