Are you Irish today, or are you Hibernian? Hmmmm…..
Liam Dutton, a weatherman in the UK, managed to rattle off the name of a 58 letter town flawlessly and received countless, big-old slaps on the back for it. Yet this little guy gives “tongue twister” a whole new meaning. I challenge you, @liamdutton!

I wrote a little book! This is a short and sweet bedtime read; something to read to your little one after you’ve both driven each other insane all day. Think of it as a sort of an apology to them: “You were a bit ‘difficult’ today, but I still love you because I have to.”

I found this link online today – people posting fabulously creative images of their Elves on Shelves. Mine, unfortunately, haunts my daughter like the clown from Poltergeist. She has asked to put him back in the basement, but I refuse. I spent $29.99 on that little sprite and he’s being put to good use this year.

So in addition to a college fund, I’ll start setting money aside for therapy. For the month of December, however, I’m appreciating the fact that I can use this little guy to get her to do as she’s told, stay un-naked for most of the day, and wipe her own butt. Merry Christmas! (He’s watching you….)
