Over and over again we're seeing it on our ballots: A millage to keep our community's library open. Nobody enjoys paying more in taxes, but I know myself, for one, would hate to see a wonderful thing like my library get shut down.

...she may ask you to read it to her 1,000 times. Little K is obsessed with reading. In fact, it has now trumped couch cruising and gnawing on puzzle pieces as her favorite daily activity. We sit on the floor in front of our book basket and read. And read. And read. And unfortunately, her … Continue Reading..
There's no way to sugar coat it: Our daughter's room smells like a farm. That's what my hubby says at least. And I take his word for it since he actually did grow-up on a farm. Poop + pee-filled diapers and a disgusting diaper genie = one heck of a stink. With the weather changing and our … Continue Reading..
