Great advice! While my son is only a month old, we’re well on our way to having a house full of boys. Husband, male dog, male cat, and my best friend has three boys of her own who frequent our house. Her oldest is 11, and the youngest of the four is her new born. #3 is already an issue with the two oldest.

Cooper pulls it off.

House of Psychotic Women is an autobiographical exploration of female neurosis in horror and exploitation films.

Hillary Jordan. The House Girl is a heartbreaking, heartwarming novel, ambitious, beautifully told, and elegantly : HarperCollins Publishers.
