** Just so we're clear, I will still drink the wine if a fruit fly lands in my glass.
** The end of the school year is when all the crap that's been shoved into a tiny desk for nine months suddenly makes its way into your kitchen (or your trash).
** My son thinks I grew up in the early 1900's. Awesome.

If you have a kid in any kind of organized sport, then you've most likely witnessed some pretty awful sportsmanship at one time or another. It's bad enough when it's another kid displaying the rotten behavior, but when it's an adult? Well, that's just the lowest of the low. And this past weekend I had the misfortune of observing THE most jack asinine…Continue

ACTUALLY I am a very simple eater... times when I do not post up outside food, those drooling and tempting food, that means I am just having a simple meal at home... so simple that many of us do not find them appetizing at all.
This evening I came home after 7pm and since it was quite late, I was too lazy to go to my mum's…

My kids are getting to that dreaded age where every flippin' weekend they beg for a sleepover. As soon as school gets out on Friday, they start hittin' me up for a party in their pj's. And I don't know about you, but I am not a big fan of the sleepover, mainly because it ends up biting ME in the ass the next day.
Now my son is not really the issue, since he…Continue

The mystery of how I can wanna squeeze and hug our beastly goof of a dog one minute and then release him to a pack of hungry grizzlies the next continues to baffle me. Yes, Goatdog is doing his damnedest to make sure that our love-hate relationship doesn't die out too quickly. Sometimes he's my big, furry buddy, and then other times, he's a prickly thorn in my side…Continue

I received an unexpected gift this Mothers Day. It was delivered from my past and came wrapped in a twenty year old quilted lavender bedspread. It was packed up in the back of our storage closet, propped up between the wooden crib where my babies slept and the plastic crates that my daughter recently brought home…Continue

After celebrating Mother's Day this past weekend, I'm not afraid to toot my own horn and say that my kids are huge fans of their mama. In fact, my poor husband is often shoved to the side when it comes to which parent they prefer. And as hunky dory as this all may sound in theory, it isn't always sunshine and roses.
For example, I could be all the way…Continue

Mothers' Day is not about jewelry. It's not about a day at the spa. It's not about lunch at a fancy restaurant or even breakfast in bed.
I'm embarrassed when I see moms complaining about a lack of "wow" on Mothers' Day. Usually they have small children, so what they're really complaining about are their husbands. What do you mean you didn't get anything. Look at your children! How many quiet hours have you spent blissfully rocking your newborns? How many raspberries have…

If you follow me on Twitter, you've probably been subjected to my bitching about third grade math from time to time. Call me crazy, but I'm just not a big fan of assignments that make make me feel dumber than my nine-year-old children. Cause right now, my kids think I know everything, and this math crap is totally starting to blow my cover!!!

There have been countless times during my parenting experience where I think we should really make religion more of a focus in our family. Now, don't get me wrong -- I, by no means, am a Bible beater; nor is my husband. However, little inquiring minds wanna know just who this "God" dude actually is and why so many people are always talking about him.
