I love this show on ABC called What Would You Do? It puts people in certain situations that they don’t know are staged, and then the people are secretly filmed see how they would react.
So I thought I would every now and then have posts where I pose certain scenarios to my readers. They could be made up, or they could be something you told me, and didn’t think I would use.

Dear Ben, Jack and Julia,
Next week I will be going on a little vacation with Amy to California. I know. Why do I need to go away without you and Daddy? How can I say this without sounding too harsh?

Not even seeing other people enjoying their turkey legs with one hand, while professionally navigating their motorized scooter with … Continue Reading »
Aren’t these men in this picture adorable? They are at the grocery store buying their Mother’s Day treats. They have let the moms sleep in, they have probably taken care of the grocery shopping for the week. They are making their wives feel special and appreciated.

I have poured 3,975 glasses of water for my kids. Of those said glasses, I have cleaned up at least 1,000 messes. I have worked on 20 science projects and had 300 well check visits. I have made 6,000 school lunches. I have driven in the car for four hours straight, all while staying within a 2 mile radius, having never actually stepped foot out of my car. I have been asked by another mom at a restaurant if I had any rubber dinosaurs for her baby to play with, … Continue Reading »
