5 kids books that make great gifts

Number 1 on my list is<a href="">"Someday a Bird Will Poop on You"</a> ($16.95). Kids obviously love this book because you say “poop” a bazillion times. Crude? Yes. Effective? Yes. Why?

However, I have... Read more »

Suburban Haiku: 17 Syllables and a Little Insight Into My Own Absurdity

Six years ago, I ventured to a HS freshman-year volleyball game to cheer on my  cousin and all of her new, awkward friends. “WHAT WAS SHE THINKING?”, a  parent yelled as a 13-year-old missed  a spike. One might have even referred to my cousin’s teammate as “useless”. Welcome to crazytown. Now that I have a... Read more »
