For those of you old enough to remember Grover in his prime, and for those of you who have never heard it, I give to you "Grover and the Letter Y" - Sesame Street's answer to the classic skit, "Who's on First." I have loved this since I was 6 years old. Grover is the best.

Some commercial for Fiber One caramel nut protein bars has the tagline, "It's not a candy bar." Ummmmm, yes it is, doofuses. Just because you take a candy bar, pump some whey protein into it and shove a vitamin pill up its ass does not make it magically healthy.


My husband and I made our kids an indoor pup tent out of dowels, rope, and some really awesome fabric. It looks spectacular and I have never seen them so excited to play with something - better than Christmas morning, even. I am so proud of us.
