Until recently, I was not a coffee drinker. I couldn’t understand what the appeal was, quite honestly. Every time I saw a Facebook update that mentioned coffee, my eyes sort of glazed over.

The question is rhetorical, of course. I have friends who had their babies pierced at their three-month checkups. But it is something we’re dealing with right now, so I’m asking. We were on the way to my Mom’s house when Big Girl brought it up: “When can I get my ears pierced?” My husband and [...]
