The Battery Saga Continues

When my son was nine months old, he swallowed a disc battery. I had seen it the day before, sitting menacingly towards the back of the cabinet under the bathroom sink and thought to myself, "I must remember to get that". Of course, we had child locks on the cabinet, but my son was some [...]

Everything Will Be Awesome

So we recently watched The Lego Movie and I've pretty much had the song, "Everything Is Awesome" in my head ever since. Which, to be honest, isn't so awesome.
