Sorry about the quality.} Tonight, just before bedtime, I told The Diva to change her Pull-Up {It’s actually an Easy-Up, but Pull-Up is the only thing she lets us call them}. […]

My Daughter, Commercial Watching Freak…

So I was in my bedroom perusing a cool article on MomDot.com, when The Diva comes running in yelling “Mommy, you have to come see THIS!“. I told her to hold on because I was reading this article and I wanted to finish it. She said, “But Mommy, you HAVE to see THIS! RIGHT NOW!” […]
