Dear Target,

I know you've got this whole "Design for all" thing, which I think is brilliant in concept. But clearly, you're lacking a little on the execution. Suffice to say, I'm now calling Missoni, the fabulous, zig-zaggy Italian design brand, Miss-out-i.

I'm sad. And light on zig zags.

M.O.M. (Mom-item of the Moment)

Ugly shoes suck. And I see so, so many of them in momdom. I feel like it's my personal mission in life to prove to moms that shoes can be cute, comfortable AND cheap. Voila, exhibit A:These go with everything and have a little edgy flair thanks to the double ankle straps. And they are less than $20. Need I say more? These are from Urban Outfitters. You can buy them here.

I was holding my daughter today when I felt her sly little fingers in my armpit. My kids know that it is NOT OK to tickle mama, especially under the arms. This has to do with some extreme childhood tickling and possibly even some loss of bladder control, but that's neither here nor there. Bottom line is, I said, "Please stop." And she said, "Why?" And I said, "Because you know mama does not like to be tickled." And she said, "I'm not tickling you, I'm just PLAYING WITH YOUR HAIR."

The caps are mine, not hers. Because I deserve them.
