  1. I live in Minnesota and Dot’s Pretzel’s are sold all over. They are staple snack in our house! Soooo good!!

  2. That BuzzFeed childhood memories post really spoke to me! I know I did/had/experienced every single thing on the list.
    It is really hard to beat Dot’s Pretzels. Fortunately, local stores sell them now (I’m in Kansas). At my last job, we would put our orders together to avoid shipping! The Dot’s snack mix (on their website) is ADDICTIVE!!!

  3. I have glowing memories of smearing glue over my entire finger and trying to carefully pull it off so it was inside out and I could see my fingerprint in the dried glue. I estimate about 50% of my glue allotment as a child was used to make glue gloves.

  4. Thanks for the bit on Curry and Riley. Also for the children’s book referral. I’m getting it at the library. Have your boys seen the Interrupting Chicken books? Probably a little young for the older one, but still humorous, and he’d get things the younger one might miss.

  5. Just watched the Christmas Chronicles on Netflix with my son (6). It was very cute! He actually sat and watched the whole thing, which is a great accomplishment (if you know what I mean).
