My Stapler

Funny story: at 20 weeks baby Turner is the size of a Swingline stapler.  If you’ve seen the 1999 movie Office Space, then you know the one I’m talking about.  If not, reference photos below. And, yes, I am a huge nerd. I have my very own red Swingline stapler at the office. And, I Read More …

I’m much more likely to decorate with anatomical hearts than real Read More …
