The Preparation H Incident

Before I get into what happened, let me start at the beginning. We had a rough month. The kids had the flu and double ear infections. One also had strep.

I'm not a cool mom. I came to terms with it long ago, I'm no longer sad about it, life will go on. I was cool back in my younger days. I had tons of friends and knew about everything going on. Lies. That's all lies. I've always been oblivious to all that is cool.… Continue reading Midnight Flossing
