Activity # 277 Join a museum with a friend. I love this parent hack for stay-at-home-parents and their friends to save money and have more fun. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it. Brilliant.
Two love-notes to me. I’ll be theeere for you (the one where she broke her foot and I was a piggybacking hero) and 6 things I learned from Heather (the one where I know some obscure stuff that passes for life lessons).
Talking about being a WAHM. An interview with Kristen Chase about maintaining boundaries in a boundary-less-24/7 world among other hot topics like having her cake and eating it too.

Honorable mention goes to crafty cleverness: souvenir shirt for 6 Flags and a great review: leggings that post-partum women will want to make out with.
Thanks for having babies around the same time as me and being an awesome writing partner! What an unexpected adventure.
