Today’s #PenOfTheDay package is pretty incredible, because not only did it have a few pens in it (thank you!) but also two embroidered t-shirts for Roy & Viv, sporting the Skokie Fire Department emblems!
MANY THANKS to Tom & Chris at Ribbons Of Love Embroidery (847 815 3410, or firstname.lastname@example.org), as well as Nancy at the Skokie Fire Department for the kind gifts!
I’m good to go for a few days now, can you send me a pen for next week, please? Address below:
We’ve all told our kids to eat properly, use a napkin, don’t bite off more than you can chew … at the ballgame, all bets are off.
Love this shot as cameras found a toddler struggling with his hot dog, with his parents oblivious to it all.
Can you relate?
I remember playing with this for hours as a kid, and I was not good at it.
In what appears to be a new world record, this adorable 2-year-old from Brazil solves the Cube in 70 seconds. Can’t. Stop. Watching.
Do you think you could do this too?
We’ve had a snowfort in the front yard since the Super Bowl blizzard … with so much snow, it’s a full igloo with tunnels as well.
That said, I’d LOVE to have a luge track like this, from the front yard all the way behind the garage.
Ever seen anything like it?
According to a recent survey in Parents Magazine, there are a few phrases we use that are actually hurting our kids, rather than helping:
* Let me help
* Great job!
* Hurry up!
I’m not sure I understand the logic behind why these are “bad” but it reminded me that I use the same phrases my mom did (that I hated!).

Hey, intern Dom here!
Around Christmas time, kids sometimes ask for the most over-the-top, unattainable things, right? Santa Claus is working hard in the North Pole to bring them exactly what they want, so why not take full advantage of it!
Check out this 7-year-old’s Christmas list HERE …
Some of the items on the list:
- A new canopy that glows up.
- All of the beanie babies!

An amazing night at our house last night, as the Tooth Fairy made her first-ever visit … our 6-year-old Roy put his lower front tooth under the pillow, and when he woke up, a gleaming 5-dollar bill was in its place!
Jill & I couldn’t believe how much the Tooth Fairy has increased her giving since we were kids and got quarters. Has she ever brought something truly interesting or BIG to your house?
Hey, intern Dom here!
A recent survey found that 2/3 of moms say they have hidden in the bathroom for alone time (it’s pretty well documented mothers want more time to themselves!).
Is this you? Where’s your favorite spot to disappear for a bit?
With everybody back in school now, I loved the message of this video … no matter what age your kids are:
A family in Charleston, NC was alerted to something fishy when their “always good-natured” dog started to growl every time the babysitter entered the room … after leaving an iPhone recording audio under the couch one morning, the young parents learned that the babysitter had been physically abusing their 5-month-old (!).
Thank goodness for the dog!
Ever noticed anything crazy happening when you arrived home unexpectedly?
