The Banana Boat Ride

As a parent, I've often found myself doing things that I wouldn't dream of doing on my own free will --  cleaning poop off a wall, catching puke with my bare hands, dining at a germ-infested Chuck E. Cheese.  But the hellacious thing I got roped into doing last week on vacation?  Well, that should earn me fabulous…

Crazy Aaron Can Suck It

grrrrrrr

I've always been of the opinion that Play-Doh, Silly Putty, and all things gooey should be "outside" toys.  They just always seem to crumble into little bits all over the floor for someone's feet to drag throughout the entire damn house.  And this is EXACTLY why I should have known better than to allow my children to…

The case for Saturday morning cartoons

I was always an early riser - even when I was little. I would get up early on Saturdays, creep downstairs with a blanket and watch Saturday morning cartoons until Soul Train came on and ended all my fun. At some point, my brother would come downstairs, too. We would spend several hours watching classics like Thundercats, Looney Toons and…

The Polarization of Mommies...

In the wee hours of the night, as I rocked my littlest guy to sleep, my mind began to wander and I started to think about how things have changed since my oldest boys were babies.  See, I'm a pushin' 40 Momma again to a baby - with an 8 and almost 12 yr old...and, let me tell you - A LOT has changed.  The gadgets are cooler, safety regulations are completely different and everything is more expensive.  But, as I rocked and reminisced, I realized one of the biggest differences…

People forget: We're supposed to be nice

I've been part of an interviewing panel at my company. We've searched through a score of resumes and talked to a lot of people. My favorite part of the interviews come when the candidates ask us about our team and we can talk about how we are like a family. (It gives me the warm fuzzies every time.) At some point, the candidates…
