Dirty Dishes – Ranty Stuff

Life, Love and Dirty Dishes is mainly about parenting.  Living life with small people and the situations we find ourselves in.  Dirty Dishes refers to the not so pleasant but unavoidable things we have to deal with.  It’s my space where I sometimes talk about hot issues and first world problems.  We all need to have a rant every now and then don’t we.
