Popular Posts You Wish You Started

[Editor's Note: While Elf on the Shelf doesn't officially make the list, The Mom of the Year's rundown of overdone posts cracked me up.

There are so many topics out there that I wish I would have been creative enough to have been one of the first to blog about, but I just totally missed the boat.

French Parents Are Superior -- Just Like All Other Parents
