Life is a Sticky Mess at the Bottom of My Purse

September 21, 2014

While I’m not exactly a fashionista, I do have to admit I’ve always been a big fan of purses. There’s something about an elegant bag on your shoulder, or a chic little clutch in your hand, that just feels good, especially when compared to an utterly unchic diaper bag which just feels, well, like poop. And given the amount of time I spend in Sherpa Mom mode, carting other people’s backpacks, swim bags, dance gear, rock collections and assorted arts and crap around, it feels downright zen to hoist something all my own, something not sold at Target, something completely untouched by the Disney marketing team, on my shoulder….More

The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
