Trying to draw this on your cat’s foot (ok, both cats’ feet) is not a good reason to miss a return call from the pediatrician explaining why the injection site of your chid’s vaccine is swollen (even if drawing on the cats’ feet got the child to stop crying for a minute).  Really.  For really reals.

Parenting Tip of the Day:

Thank goodness for procreation; without out it I’d have no education:

Me: [watching fireworks with the child] Sometimes I like to pretend they might rain down on my head, you?

Child: No. I don’t like to pretend that anything made of fire is going to land on my head.

Parenting Tip of the Day:

Happy Fourth of July!

Gotta love a parade!

Celebrate your Freedom…
(to stand in the street, take candy from strangers, eat the candy that falls on the ground, talk to men with giant tubes in their pants, and hug men dressed as animals)!

Happy Independence Day, all (yes, even furries)!

No matter how many times a piece of glass goes through the washing machine, it will not become sea glass.
