Red has to be Liz’s father even though he says he’s not: you think this too, right? And I can’t be the only one who sort of wants to punch Fitz. Or watches a show as much for the music as the drama. (“The Blacklist,” “Scandal,” and “Nashville” in case you didn’t know) I’ll admit […]

My three little boys have a special talent: they are the messiest kids on the face of the earth. Dropping crumbs and scattering debris everywhere they go.
