Back To College: Behind the Scenes

So we just moved Thing 1 back to college this weekend. It was a great summer having him home but we knew he had to go back.

Open Letter to the Dentist and My Dad

Dear Dentist, You lied. All those years you’ve asked me if I flossed while having both your hands and dental tools shoved in my mouth.
