Before I turn over the site to AUTONOMOUS author, Andy Marino, I have to give you all a little bit of my opinion on this book.

I honestly think it stems from my birthday being 8 days before Christmas and always getting the shaft. From “combined” birthday/Christmas gifts (if you have someone in your life with a December birthday, don’t do that to them. Ever.) to…

Whether it was Blues Clues when the oldest was little, or Dora when the middle was little, or Wonder Pets when the youngest was little, every day brought some new wonderful moment of sugary sweet saccharine viewing. I’d never admit it to them,…

A note from Kristen:  I had the opportunity to get a sneak preview of the now insanely popular Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why and while I found it to be a great show with a lot of talking points for parents to have with their teens, the show has not been without criticism.
