Which means I’ve been exposed to the annoying barrage of children’s programming for ten years. 3,650 days of the talking animals, the sing-song-repetitive bullshit, the nonexistent story-lines, and the guest-stars.

My Daughter’s First Halloween in the NICUhttp://www.scarymommy.com/halloween-in-the-nicu/ http://www.scarymommy.com/halloween-in-the-nicu/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:00:23 +0000 http://www.scarymommy.com/?p=53902 My elder daughter came into this world, ironically, over Labor Day weekend nearly 20 years ago.
