I try not to do the whole “when I was your age” thing on my kids. Because it doesn’t really have any effect on them. And? It makes me feel old. And that? Is not cool.

But today, while driving down the street, pumping music the way only a mom with 3 kids in a minivan can….which is fairly lame…Peyton had a revelation.

Only to discover that you only had enough tape to get through the middle of the first chorus of “Total Eclipse of the Heart”. Tears. Flip tape over. Wait another 2 hours.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
