Really the only link I need to post today, particularly if you're shopping online; Mir is your gal.
Both Rob's parents and my parents came from large families, and I can so relate to this statement from Dana's recent STL Today column. "It’s like speed dating, but with gobs of food and obligation."
"One of the weird things about parenthood is that one of the more gratifying experiences you can have is taking care of a sick kid. Sick kids are just about the saddest, most pathetic creatures this side of three-legged dogs." Bob Rybarczyk is another STL Today columnist, and I use his full name because he admits to sometimes googling himself. Hi Bob!
