UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH. We need to talk about laundry. I don't know about you guys, but laundry is probably going to be the thing that does me in. Honestly.

Peegate

Peegate. If you are thinking that I'm talking about urine. Human waste. Pee. Pee pee. Wee wee. A scandal about wee wee of Watergate proportions. You would be correct. Today we had tennis lessons in the morning for the kids. After getting them there, my husband and I decided to run home and throw dinner… Continue reading Peegate
