cute superhero capes for kids

Just yesterday my little guy expressed that he needs “superpowers”. As if the powers of destruction, mayhem, and charm weren’t enough for a 2 year-old.

I’ve been on Twitter for a while now, but I just haven’t been using it to its fullest capacity. I recently learned about Girls Night Out on Twitter or to the expert, #gno. It was started by the two ladies behind Mom It Forward and is the hottest place to be on the internets on a Tuesday night. I honestly…
