A (Very) Short Story By My Son

(This story must be prefaced with the fact that it was nothing short of a miracle to get my son to write anything in school at all.  His poor teacher had to practically hypnotize him to get any kind of writing topics to emerge from his little brain.  So yeah, this story's about a giant turd, but hey, at least the kid wrote a story, right??!!)

How to Keep Your Kids From Murdering Each Other This Summer

So if you're anything like me, you're trying your damnedest to find something for your kids to do so that they don't kill each other over summer vacation.  And that "something" would preferably be an activity that keeps 'em occupied for a long stretch of time, perhaps even long enough for Mama to have a well-deserved glass of wine and maybe even *gasp* take a pee in…

Things I've Learned This Week

 

** Cruise control scares the shit out of me.

 

** When you travel with kids, it's a trip.  When you travel without them, it's a vacation.

 

** 99.9% of the water at water parks is a combination of urine and ick.  Probably.

 

** Trying to get your kids to sleep at a water park is like trying to get a nun to pole…

A Pregnancy Announcement

On June 30th our lives changed forever. That is the day that my role in life quickly switched gears. Ladies, my husband and I are expecting our first child and we are beyond thrilled. If you have followed me over the last few months you know that this has been my dream for a long time.

Three Things That Made My Day Less than Stellar

I'm a list girl.  Always have been.  Always will be.

I like a chore list.  I like the focus it gives me during the day and I love, love, love being able to cross things off my list as the day goes on.

I live by a grocery list.  I don't understand how people can go to the grocery store without one.  Unless you have a list in your head of the 3 to 5 things you need, but then again, that's a list.  A mental list?  Yes.  But a list, nonetheless.  Walking through the aisles…

Lessons in Cross-Country Travel with a Toddler

Dear readers, I'm back! I've just returned from a fantastic vacation to California to visit my family.  It was quite the adventure getting there because it was D2's first plane ride. To say I was nervous about travelling across the country on my own with a toddler is an understatement. At almost 20 months, D2 is very active and loathes sitting in his car seat for more than a…
