Although my kids are still relatively young, just 10 and 12-years-old, sometimes I feel like I became a mother in the Dark Ages. But 2003 really was kind of like living in a cave, I guess, because I missed many of the trends that have now become permanent fixtures in the life of parents. Gender Reveal Parties? Smash Cakes? Elf on the Shelf?
I thought we had a good relationship with my husband’s brother and his family. And then everything went wrong.
