The six year old artist of the house is constantly creating hilarious, unexpected things. The latest? Her very own aquarium. In a Ziploc bag. Pure awesome. Here are the instructions, straight out of the six year old’s mouth. 1. First, you get a small plastic bag that zips up. 2. Now, you draw some sea [...]
Oh hi. So it’s been a long while since I last posted – not sure if anyone besides my husband has noticed but in this case, it’s been unavoidable.

I just finished the back to school shopping for the kids a couple of days ago (school starts September 4th here), and I was able to take advantage of some great deals. My kids have this funny way of outgrowing everything this time of year, so short of socks and underwear, we needed a lot. [...]
