I seems my life lately has been dominated by super heros. Over the last few days I've learned a lot about Spider Man. I already had the 1960's theme song down, but I had no idea how dynamic this guy really is.
5 things you didn't know about Spider Man:
1. Spider Man loves to show off his muscles. All that web slinging really builds up that body. I mean, Wow!…

My son of fifteen behaved like a teen and disobeyed one of the house rules this past weekend. He's come to the stage were he will still do whatever he wants and calls me un-sympathetic towards him. I'ts crazy how they have done something wrong, yet they get you to feel unhappy, stressed, crazy and guilty. I'm working on that.
So,I've grounded him for two weeks , no friends, no games, NO COMPUTER.
But he thought he could outwit me by using the WI-FI on his phone. So we changed… Continue

I am ashamed to say that I have had many, many.... many embarrassing moments in Motherhood. In fact, of all of my mothering friends, I would say I probably have the most moments that induce gales of laughter over a glass of wine. All at my expense, all for the enjoyment of others.
I have had public displays of lactation, gas attacks that would clear a biker bar while pregnant, and every type of spit up, vomit, poop and other various child deposits on my shirts for all to see. And… Continue

I joined an online discussion recently. A mom's baby was turning 11 and she was surprised at how fast the time went by.
I responded by telling a story of the boys. By the time I hit the reply… Continue

Hi, my name is Tracy & I’m a Crackbook addict….& apparently I have also become a frikkin’ Twit….go figure! Oddly, I’ve come to prefer Twitter at times…quick, to the point tweets, back & forth for a few minutes, walk away. Facebook is far more time consuming & personal, neither of which I’m very inclined towards! I just don’t have the attention sp….Oh look, a Blue Birdie…look to the right, look back at me…that I followed to Twitter, which, compared to Facebook, moves as… Continue

Just so we're straight- I'm not the one on the potty.

My makeup bag contains one very old tube of foundation (because I only wear makeup on the rare occasions when my husband and I go out for dinner) and a few other dried up objects. I resorted to cutting my own hair when Mirabelle was a baby (because it just seemed easier than trying to work out a time when I could go to a hair salon, given she was BF and refused… Continue

The British Journal of Psychiatry has published the findings of a new research study from the Australian National University. After studying 1,241 women, scientists concluded that women's memories remained as good during and after pregnancy as before. Prof Helen Christensen who led the study said "women need to be less automatic in their willingness to attribute common memory lapses to a… Continue

Marriage counseling stinks.
It really does. I skipped our session last week, and I’ve been avoiding admitting the truth and writing this post ever since. But that’s my m.o., that’s what I do. I go in cycles, up, down, and all around. When I start to slide, it’s a very slippery slope.
Nobody told me that if I really wanted to work on my marriage, I’d also have to work on myself. I know how stupid that sounds. I mean, REALLY work on myself.
It’s almost like remodeling a… Continue

Ask your partner why they love you. See what happens. I did, and then I tried not to panic when my husband paused and told me the question made his brain hurt.
Well actually, that requires the presence of a brain, and since he still hadn’t answered yet, I seriously doubt his is in working order. Men can be so DENSE
Oh, by the way, our rubberbands from last week’s session, lasted approximately 20 hours. Not even a full day. They were, quite possibly, the worst idea I’ve… Continue

So we’ve already determined that we stink. We’ve forgotten how to dream. We’ve lost our individual identities and we’re simply co-existing. Sounds pretty depressing, doesn’t it?
Well Ladies, I must say, since our first marriage counseling session was posted last week, my life has been an absolute whirlwind.
We may, in fact, stink. But a funny thing happened. When you start communicating, no matter how “big” or “small” the conversation, things start to change.
Dynamics are… Continue

My 9 year old daughter informed our dinner companions last night that I have a "dark side."
Despite the fact that it's true, I was alarmed that my daughter picked up on it. Of course, my sister and cousin were hysterical laughing and pointing fingers at me. I told them to "shut-up."
Does a 9 year old even know what a dark side is? And if so, when did she see it? Did she see me scratch my nose with my middle finger at some old lady who cut us off the other day? Did she… Continue
