There was also whining, a missing kid at the restaurant for a few panicked minutes, a black eye and the Virus That Does Not End that had me and Steve and half the kids still feeling wiped out and coughing every ten seconds.

Mother’s Day: where Reality supersedes the Ideal but you realize that Reality is still pretty amazing and beautiful, despite the imperfections.

    Kudos for getting all four of you to look at the camera at the same time. That in itself deserves a medal.
