Field(Day) Of Dreams

  Who remembers Field Day?! I always looked forward to this day in elementary school as one of the highlights (if not the single best day) of the entire school year. An entire day of limited (or none at all!) formal instruction that was instead filled with games, prizes, picnic lunches, Popsicles, music, the works. […]

Indecent Promposal

Eager to join in the increasingly popular wave of social media- worthy “promposals”, Florida high school senior Noah Crowley came up with a surefire way to make his grand gesture stand out from the pack:   Sigh.

L is one of the youngest on the team, so these girls […]

Judging a Book On its Cover…And A Few Pages Inside, As Well

  The Babies and I recently finished Judy Blume’s Superfudge, and they loved it. I found little Farley Drexel Hatcher to be just as funny now as he was when I was a kid, and the book overall to be even more identifiable now that I have experienced raising my own little 5-year old boy […]
