Why I Refuse To Let My Daughter Watch The Little Mermaid

There are a lot of movies from my childhood I’m not real keen on my kids watching. The Lion King for instance has a pretty disturbing beginning where poor Simba watches his father fall to his death. It’s heart-wrenching and far too advanced for a young child to see. I prefer my kids don’t have […]

So Tired – A Taylor Swift Parody for Sleepy Moms

I think I’ve made it clear here a time or two that I adore Taylor Swift. One day on my way to work while blaring her tunes, some different words came to mind. I thought to myself, instead of “James Dean daydreams” I’d probably write “big black circles”. And instead of “you come and pick […]
