As everyone knows, the surest sign of a successful Thanksgiving dinner is the level of food coma you find yourself in following the meal. 

LEVEL 1: Eyes glazed over, possibly drooling, unable to participate in coffee and dessert conversation

LEVEL 2: Asleep at the table 

LEVEL 3: On the couch, in your underwear, with company in plain view (see above)

I thought it would only be appropriate to dedicate this Friday's Colossal Cake Smash Smackdown to "Biggest Sugar Coma". I figured, on this day especially, you would all be able to relate.

But before I get to it, I have two short announcements.


Mommy Shorts: The Show — Episode 2

Episode2thumbnailsmallThank you to everyone who has subscribed to my new YouTube channel. There are 114 of you and I will try my best not to like those 114 people any better than the rest of you.

But it will be hard.

If you have not seen the second episode of "Mommy Shorts: The Show", you can check it out here. I'm talking about Dance Moms, Tiger Woods' love child and Mazzy's energetic rendition of the ABCs.
