Well... I have three kids, currently aged 4, 5, and 8. This means there are lots of yucky carbs in the house, and despite my best intentions, I have been known to graze, nibble, and sample my fair share of these goodies. My waistline doesn't approve.
of my successes (and maybe a failure or two...) .

The story unfolded into the panoply of crazy that surrounds a narcissistic personality. This was portrayed very well, and you really felt the sisnister characters and the pain that was caused to everyone involved.
I really can't say much more without giving up the plot! Give the book a try: Emma In The Night

My parents hadn’t seen my son since Christmas, so it was time for a trip. For all the (shudder) pictures, I decided it was time to freshen up my hair color. Hmm, how about a nice medium blonde, to match what I had been growing out for the past few years? Sure! I used an at-home kit, and I SWEAR to you that I picked medium blonde. Yet, when I got out of the shower, my hair looked disturbingly red. I thought it was perhaps that my hair was still wet – I ran all over looking for a dryer, no luck. Convinced it was no big deal, I let my hair air dry and went back to my day. Whoops.
Several hours later I got a chance to look at myself in the mirror. It.Was.Still.Red. Really red. I checked the box – had I made a mistake? Nope, girl on the front still smirked at me with blonde hair. I checked the bottle – had someone mixed up the colors? Nope, it claimed to be blonde. Disturbing.
Until I started to think about it… what day of the month was it? Uh-oh. I made a quick stop at CVS, bought one of those digital pregnancy kits that can’t be misread – it either blinks pregnant or not pregnant. I was on my way to lunch at the time, so I had to take the test in the Cheesecake Factory bathroom. Yeah, classy! I sat down at the table with my friends, only mildly thinking I could get a pregnant – it just didn’t add up. Well, a few minutes later, I reached into my bag, and WHAT?! I shook the test; it was playing a prank on me. Nope! I was pregnant!
I had read that this could happen – the funny hair color deal, but didn’t actually think it could happen to moi. Seems those funny first trimester hormones have a wicked sense of humor. Luckily, my hair magically went back to blonde in about a week, so other than being a redhead in some pictures, no harm done.

Adorable product, safe for baby
Pros: Durable, Safe, Soft
Cons: Smaller than pictured
Best Uses: Baby's first christmas
We received this for our son's first Christmas a week ago, I wanted to let him play around with it before I reviewed. Other than it being slightly smaller than it looks in the picture (no big deal, it was just the way the picture was angled) it's really a very clever and cute idea. Most nativity sets are basically hands-off for small children, but this one has had my 10-month old stuffing in his mouth and playing with the different dolls. Each doll comes with a little slot for a finger on the back, so they make great finger dolls. We got the bag personalized, which looks great, and the whole thing just zips up so you can port it around. We will probably be bringing this out on the holidays for years to come!
