One of the best things about being a parent is the unintentionally hilarious things that kids say. Sometimes out of the blue funny and sometimes so inappropriate that you ahve to turn your head so they don't see you laughing.
Here are some funny things that have come out of the mouths of my children.
Me: "Lillyana, I will be washing your hair tonight"
Lillyana: " I will be screaming while you do it."
Me: "Alex, you are so cute."
Alex: "No mommy. I no cute. I soooooooo handsome."
Alex: " Mommy, what does b-o-o-b-s spell?"
Me: "Alex where did you hear that word?"
Alex: "I think it was Sesame Street."
I walked out of my room wearing a new robe.
Lillyana: "Mommy, you look like a queen."
Me: "Thank you honey!"
Lillyana (curtsied): "You are welcome your majesty."
Me: "Lilly, can you say Buckingham Palace"
Lilly: "No mommy. Only grown-ups can use that word."
Lillyana: "Mommy, can I use your bra as a backpack?"
What hilarious things do your kids say?

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
