Dear M&M's + honey roasted peanuts + candy corn,
You are one of my favorite fall treats,
Dear pumpkin spice candy corn,
You taste like candle wax.
Dear common core,
I had a feeling I wasn't going to like you. I tried to give you chance. I am a smart person...I have the grades and transcripts to prove it...but atlas I still find myself having to google my second grader's math homework. While I am on the subject of homework...I am fairly certain my children just spent 7 hours of their day at school...I don't really think they need homework almost every night... again you, common core, are to blame for that.
In the words of Daniel Tiger...Grow ups come back...so please stop freaking out every time we leave the house. I promise we won't leave and forget about you.
Dear Huffington Post,
You good company during those 2 am feedings. Also, the more tired I am the more funny I find things to be. I laughed so hard I actually cried when I read How to Put a Toddler to Bed in 100 Easy Steps. I found parent tweets to be equally funny. But, my favorite read so far this week was On Motherhood and Sleepless Night...grab some tissues.
We have had a small minor break through in potty training. Hallelujah praise the Lord.
Normally I loathe you. In fact I almost never shop at you, I am more of a Target kind of gal. But, this year you came through for more...in the forms of an Elsa costume. Every other place...in store and online have been sold out. I have one happy 7 year old, so thank you.
