Your LifeUpon my weekly, actually sometimes daily, ritual of going to Walgreens and Target, which are both a block from my house, I couldn’t help but get caught up in all the Mother’s Day merchandise that was now on sale.

This news flash instilled immediate fear in this child and “SHE” said I’ve got to call the other two siblings; we’re going to die!
