iPhone Overload

My kids are driving me absolutely CUCKOO-KACHOO with all the friggin' apps they continue to want for the iPhone.  Every day it's something new.  My damn phone now has over 8,764 different games on it!  WTF?!  Ok, so maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but I seriously can't find any of the things that I need on it anymore cause it's so overcrowded with kid…

Moment by Moment

What follows is some serious soul-searching interspersed with cute pictures of my kids. Bear with me.



I feel ashamed to admit how often I lose my cool around my children.  In all honesty, not losing my cool at least once during the day is a rare exception. Not only do these kids know a great deal about how to push my buttons, but they are also extremely irrational. The combo of the two is a sure fire way to bring out what I call "Mean Mommy."…

Hi,

It's so great being here.

A Peaceful Equation

Bedtime with my twinks continues to reach an all-time low around here.  Every flippin' night I threaten to sell 'em off in a 2-for-1 special at a garage sale.  Cause seriously, why did I have to be the one to give birth to the sleepless wonder twins?  I say it's high time I open up a can of 'Serious As A Heart Attack' and take back my nightly mother effin' me-time.  So, here's the equation that I hereby propose:…

Asparagus is not "yucky"

I was in the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and I over heard a conversation between a mother and her (maybe) 5 year old son.  They were standing next to a large display of asparagus in the middle of the produce section.  Here's what I heard:



Boy: Mom, what's that?

Mom: It's Asparagus.

Boy: Can we get some?

Mom: No, Asparagus is yucky.



This small interchange really stuck in my craw.  It took all my will power to keep myself from rushing the asparagus…

College Planning- The Prerequisite Course

Every job has its parts that we could live without.  For me, there is a significantly large part of my job that I am not a fan of. I mean, I really, really don’t care for it. College counseling.  Its not for me and is by far, my biggest pet peeve.  Which is unfortunate, because it takes up a large chunk of my time I feel would be better spent doing other things.

Let me begin with an…

The Sex Talk

I will never forget being in elementary school and my mother sitting me down to have the dreaded sex talk.  I can still see her sitting in the brown chair of our living room and hear her speak those disturbing, scary words, like penis, vagina and babies coming out of it. Oh. My. God.  Is she really saying these things?  Make it stop, God, please, make it stop, I remember thinking.…

Q&A Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

QUESTION

I have a very imaginative 8 year old boy who lies all the time. Sometimes it’s to get himself out of trouble, sometimes it’s just to add to the conversation as an “expert”.  How do I channel his imagination and need to be part of discussions in a positive way?

MY PERSPECTIVE

Imagination or no imagination, everyone lies at some point and the reasons for doing so are consistent.  Either we are trying to protect…

When The Time Is Right

There is one thing that someone can say to me that annoys me more than anything else. Usually because of the type of questions that I ask in order to recieve this particular response, it will be coming from my partner. This then usually results in me wanting to scream with frustration as I picture bashing him round the head with a saucepan or other heavy object. What reply am I talking about? ..."When the time is right".



In our five years together, I've heard this MANY times from…

** If the smell of your own morning breath is making you gag, you know it's time to brush those pearly whites.

The Dreaded Routine Debate

Ok so it's time I wrote about something that has really affected my parenting. It's something that I know causes a lot of backlash and something people have very strong opinions on. I've been holding off writing this post because of this very reason but I've read some really interesting things this week that has really given me a kick in this direction. If you didn't know I'm talking about routine. The Gina Ford routine to be more precises.…

What Would Mrs. Garrett Do?

Parenthood, we have a problem.  My sweet baby girl has gone off the deep end.  Even though she's only eight years old, I'm seriously considering enrolling her in Maury Povich's boot camp.  Or a chain gang.  Or both.  Cause seriously?  This shit's gotta stop.  The kid has been sent to the principal's office not once but TWICE in one week, and one of those times was on…

Nostalgia

Nostalgia

by Lynn on February 12, 2012

Nostalgia. I don’t know if its hormonal or just something that happens when a small human being comes into your life and touches your heart in spots that quite possibly could have been black before (maybe its just me). But something bizarre happened when my kids came into my life. I became extra, super, cry reading cards in the store, cry when watching Oprah on the treadmill at the gym, cry when driving by the elementary school at the…

When dad leaves, the house just isn't the same

My husband left on a business trip last week - out of pocket, out of reach, out of the country.

I didn't think it would be that big of a deal; I'm a big girl, after all. I know how to take care of myself. I didn't realize, however, that taking care of everything and everyone would be so overwhelming.

The kids. The shopping. The homework. The house. Work. Cat. Dog. Everything. Everything due and overdue, pending and marking time. I tried. I managed. I delegated.…
