Happy Meal

Between ballet class, soccer, night classes, and having four kids, it was the easiest option for my parents at the time. It was quick, cheap, and the four of us would practically beg for it.

Princesses, Battleships, and Dinosaurs

November 3, 2010

I had a weird dream last night. I don’t remember exactly, but I think it involved princesses, battleships, and dinosaurs.
