Wow, so many places to go.

85: You’re overqualified for the GOP VP slot. One more college, one less degree should cover it.

15: Hard to believe Kevin was not a Democrat. 🙂

57: Don’t tell anyone, but our daughter just got her training wheels off about a month ago. And she’s 10. She also wants to 91.

I have 76’d … many times when I was younger and much larger.

And 44 — all parents are. 🙂

Thanks so much for sharing.
I didn’t know you were such a crier. You have been witness to me polishing down a can of pringles and then some in recent history. You are an awesome mom! I know, just from today, I can never, ever be a stay-at-home mom. I will always strive to be employed.
