... making a meal plan for the week and buying the groceries accordingly actually helps you stick to the budget and eat healthier?
... your house is never quite as picked up as you'd like it to be when you have a child, no matter how old they are, I'm guessing?
... you can memorize some of those children's books pretty quickly? The sun has set not long ago, and everybody goes below... I don't even read that book anymore, I just recite it as we rock before bed. (The Going to Bed Book, by Sandra Boynton)
