Life, Love and Dirty Dishes is mainly about parenting.  Living life with small people and the situations we find ourselves in.  Life refers to the funny stuff.  If becoming a parent has taught me anything, it’s enjoying simple pleasures and having a sense of humour about things.  How else would we survive the poonamis and the tantrums?  If you’ve stumbled into this category I hope these posts make you laugh and brighten your day a little.
