Happy Birthday Little Boy

I love you very, very, very, very, very much!


We're sick at our house. Sneezing, green, runny noses, hacking coughs, whiny kids, a grumpy mom. (Aaron, I'd like to cash in a sick day, please?)

And talent. I've spent my entire life trying to figure out what mine is. Because I am pretty sure that it's a singular noun in my life. If it even exists.But I do have favorite things. So, I've decided that my pay-it-forward will be a package of random, but favored things of mine. And I will call it, "Mandee's…
