Word Up, YO! Week 18

This week, we were looking for people to put the kibosh on things.

La Jersey Diva caught our eye by putting the kibosh on text message relationships amongst teens.

Anne at AJD + Three, after several attempts, put the kibosh on her son’s ear infections.

Mommy Oblongata took the cake by putting the kibosh on aging. Let us know how that goes.

Mommy Oblongata, in the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man.
