Alright, Mamas, unless you’ve been under a rock….and really, sometimes it might seem like a good option….you’ve likely heard about Miley Cyrus Gone Wild. While I didn’t see it with my eyes, I gather it was disgustingly inappropriate, yet telling of our culture. Sad. Very, very sad.

Oh, that Molly!! She is obsessed with babies. This summer at the pool I would start looking for her and then find her across the pool under an umbrella holding another mama’s baby.
