(Spanish Edition)

Forget the celebrities who are “over the moon” in People magazine. This is what it’s REALLY like to get pregnant with, be pregnant with, give birth to, and take care of more than one baby day after day (and night after night). From someone who’s been there. What am I saying? She’s kind of still there.


Laughing IS Conceivable: From End of School to Back-To-School

So, school's over... and...so... now what? Do they go to camp? Even if they do, there's that black hole between when camp ends & school starts. Of course they'll expect me to entertain them...constantly. There's local stuff to do. Fairs & stuff. And then, oh wow look at that... it's Back-to-School time again: Shoe shopping with triplet fourth graders: Six feet to find shoes for that won't be ruined before the first day of school.. & clothes shopping... & dentist appointments... & physicals... & haircuts... Then the dreaded annual scavenger hunt for school supplies (most of which will never get used), meet-the-teachers, carpooling / bus issues.... It's no wonder there's a spike in parental strokes in the weeks before the first day of school.... I mean, there must be. Don't you think?
