  1. Hi, I just stumbled upon your blog. Very cute, and I had to laugh at #14. When my son (now 16) was in preschool, they were making mother's day projects, and the teacher asked what everyone's mom likes do to. My son's answer was "my mom likes to drink beer." At the time, I was a writer for Beer Advocate. I guess he left that part out. ;-)
