Kinetic Sand is Evil

Buying kinetic sand was the worst idea I have ever had. Or rather, the worst request I've ever said yes to. I am the Play-doh mom. The science experiment mom. The finger paint and glitter mom.

I am a Perfectionist

Hi, I’m Cece and I am a perfectionist. I did not know I was a perfectionist. In fact, secretly, deep in the recesses of my mind, longed to be a perfectionist because then I could fight my pack rat syndrome and have a clean and organized home, and I’d be much more productive. Perfectionists were,... Continue Reading →
