I was on the floor, dressed as a super hero, playing with the three-year-old daughter of a friend of mine. The little girl is just like her Mom - crazy smart and kindhearted and has the most brilliant smile. So, we played as super heroes (and we of course saved the day). And then we pretended to go to the zoo and she gave me a tour of her room and she drew me some pictures.…Continue

Peace and Love on this Sunday morning.
It has been an extremely sad week for Humanity but is it really anything new? And the fact that I can so easily think that isn't that even sadder?

When I was eight years old, my friend Annie told me about a movie she saw at home. She described scenes of a naked woman riding a horse and a man peeing in a woman's mouth. Many (many) years later I realized Annie had watched one of her father's porn videos. (Is this a Sorry, Mom moment? I don't know.)

Every once in awhile something happens with us, and I’m torn about writing it. As a blogger, I don’t want my blog to necessarily come off as doom and gloom, but these things do come up. So bear with me as I get this off my chest. Perhaps it will help another parent out there.
Sunday night, Alex asked if I would snuggle with him in bed. I said fine, as the boys had Monday off from school. I’m not as strict about sleep on…Continue

My son has an imaginary wife. And he loves to tell me stories about her.
Her name is Captain Flamers. She is a cowgirl and she was sick for a long time, but he took good care of her until she was better. She and he like to ride horses together.…

Every weekend my kids want to have company come over. I'm always reminding them that I don't have a built in card in my brain that automatically stores the contact information for everyone I meet, and neither do they, so they need to physically exchange numbers with their friends. Do they? No, but every weekend we seem to have…Continue

Maybe I’m just being sensitive.
Scratch that. I am DEFINITELY being sensitive.
But it seems that lately I have noticed how inappropriate certain conversations are when they are being held in the company of a very pregnant woman. Of course, I can’t exactly tell people to STOP talking about…Continue

Husband and MiR (Mom in Rome) in bed right before sleeping.
Husband: " Did you realize that baby Giulia will be born on June 16, the same day as Massimo?"
For those few ladies who haven't been reached by Massimo's fame (weird thing by the way), I must explain that not only he's one of Husband's best friends....but more than that, he's the most active…Continue
