No not me. This chick, Amy Glass.
This article popped up on my newsfeed this morning and as Luke was tossing his bananas and cereal onto the dogs back I thought, what a lovely morning read, lets see what she has to say...
One paragraph in and I was both giggling to myself at the stupidity of it all and just letting her words fuel my hate fire for her…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who is amazed at their child's lack of ability to just simply get out the door in a timely fashion. Our school mornings have been hectic whirlwinds of velcro shoes, backpacks, and impromptu bicycle riding in the garage, adding up to a rushed and stressed out Mama that wants to throw in the towel. Just recently though, I've noticed that it seems like we might have finally ironed out the morning wrinkles, and have been arriving at school ON TIME.

I cannot be the only one...who knows that the old saying, "when it rains, it pours," is as true today as it was when the first person uttered those words (probably between sobs and woeful wails). We spent this past week getting knocked around by strong winds, the Sonny Boy took a vacation, and the Hubs and I got to spend a little alone time together (sounds great, right? Well...keep reading for the plot twist).
Southern California is a beautiful place to live, we have…Continue

** Supervising a chain gang would be more enjoyable than supervising homework.
** The world needs a whole lot more Tina Fey & Amy Poehler.
I cannot be the only one…who has noticed that some Mamas thrive on schooling you on what is good parenting. There are those Moms who I think are just waiting for a good moment to drop some superior mothering wisdom on you and the others who are all about passing parenting judgment, either way this schooling happens to me quite often.
I narrowed down the…Continue

Coming back from a family vacation is never a fun thing. The packing, the travel, the crabby kids -- they all add up to one giant pain in the ass. It pretty much makes you forget that you were even on vacation at all. But this recent sucker punch back to reality after our New Year's trip to…Continue

Some of you may remember this post from a few years ago, and some of you may be reading it for the first time. Whatever the case, it was my own nucking futty spin on the classic tale of "The Night Before Christmas". If your holidays are anything like mine, you'll appreciate the recounting of a Christmas Eve that's not exactly what you might call picture-perfect.…Continue

As a parent, technology is often my worst enemy. Not only does it turn my son into a zombified video game addict half the time, but it also gives me gray hairs worrying about the prospect of someone sending a damn naked picture to one of my middle schoolers. (*Gasp!!!*) However, I'm starting to…Continue

Ok, yeah, I'll admit that my husband and I may have rock, paper, scissored our way through some of more undesirable aspects of parenting our twins. (I'm pretty sure we're not the only ones who do this either.) Because, sometimes, it just doesn't really make sense for BOTH of us to jump into a crappy situation. For…Continue

As a mom, I constantly rely on my cell phone to stay in connected with my older children especially when they stay at home alone, with their friends, or while they are participating in their own activities alone. While out in about, I am always worried that my battery on my cell phone will die leaving my children without a way to be able to…Continue

I swear it wasn't that long ago that my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING with me. But lately, I'm starting to realize that maybe I'm not quite as cool as I once thought I was. (*What the hell?!!*) Fifth grade is bringing on a whole new desire for independence, and friends are…Continue
