The countdown to vacation is on! And oooh boy, do I need it! See, every year (well this will be year #2) my other momma, aka Mema, takes the girls for a week during summer vacation. Not only is it awesome Mema/Grandygirl time completely saturated with fun and laughter, but it gives the tired Momma [...]

July 4th, Independence Day, 2009
God bless America, so say we all.
