registry raves

We started researching the best baby gear shortly after we found out we were pregnant.  By the time we found out we were having a girl, we knew what stroller and car seat we wanted.  Friends and family chimed in with registry must-haves, and combined with the check list the baby store gave us, we [...]

On Men And Praise

I’ve noticed that many people prefer not to rely too much on praise in their relationships.
