Today’s Google Holiday: 40th Anniversary of Sesame Street. What a fun one, right?! My two tipsters were both all “AHHH such a cute Google Holiday today!” And it is a cute Google Holiday! Big Bird, people! Who was your favorite Sesame Street character? Mine was Snuffaluffagus:

But come on, what do moms know?

    You keep talking to me like that and I’ll make sure you get locked in a room with Carter for three hours on Thanksgiving. It will be at my house, not Liz’s. You won’t be given any booze, and she won’t be given any toys.
