    No two people, well rabbits, are more popular in my household right now than Max & Ruby. If you don’t have young kids, you probably have no idea who I’m talking about.

    If I had to pick two words to describe my daughter, I’d choose prissy tomboy. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but it’s true. On one hand, Mila is your typical little girl.

    Expectant parents spend countless hours trying to choose the perfect name for their children. After all, selecting a name for your child is an important job.
