If I could give you any parenting advice, it would be this: for every good idea you have, there is an equally powerful disaster waiting to happen. Adjust your expectations and then that disaster will be funny instead of terrifically disappointing. Are you with me? Okay.
I had this great and simple Valentines idea: use paper bags I got at the grocery store to make little outfits, then have the kids wear them, take photos, and print cute Valentines cards. I left Cooper out this time, because I only have so much energy to wrangle kids into paper bags. Plus she is smaller than a paper bag. I should have just put her inSIDE of one…next year.
