All this for $1....


I purchased this 2009 calendar at Borders on clearance. It makes me want to buy every book in the series because it is so funny.

It is filled with gems like these...Christy didn't want to appear ungrateful, but there was only so much enthusiasm she could work up for another onesie, soft blanket, or Mustela bath set. If she didn't stumble on a pair of earrings or a spa certificate soon, she felt sure she would start to cry.

And my favorite...Baby Uggs: $85.00. Bugaboo stroller: $800.00. Knowing your child is better looking than your best friend's kid: Priceless.

This put a smile on my face before heading to bed. So thank you Sloane Tanen for writing such a genius take on pregnancy and motherhood. Seriously, I think my sense of humor and superb knack for sarcasm is what keeps me going on most days. Thank God!
