Thoughts on The Jungle Book (and a few Printables, too)

Last night, while my family huddled in the bathroom as tornado sirens went off and baseball-sized hail fell on surrounding suburbs, I was comfortably kicked back in the IMAX-3D theater waiting to see The Jungle Book at the AMC North Park Cinema.

A Cinderella Kind of Day Day

My daughter has been begging to get her ears pierced for ages. Her father had agreed she could…when she was sixteen. I finally pulled out the mom card, and said she could when she turned nine.
