  1. Brace Face

    We have our first tween milestone, braces.
    My 10 year old son got phase 1 of braces today. 4 top, 4 bottom and 4 brackets on his back molars. He will wear these for 18 months, rest for awhile and then go to phase 2, braces on all teeth. He was able to choose his colors, blue and yellow, he is a big UCLA fan

    Next tightening he will choose red and green for Christmas.

  5. Disney/Pixar's Up

    Sweet, funny, visually stunning, this sums up the film.

    As much as UP is billed as a child's film, I was moved to tears on three separate occasions.

    The love story between Carl and Ellie, the sadness of Russell yearning for his absent father. The symbolism of Carl and his house
