This school year is coming to an end and we are limping across the finish line (in some cases, literally). Only two of my kids are in school, I can only imagine what it is going to be like when all three of them are. Which, as my six-year-old pointed out, will only be one more school year because then the one-year-old will be in a morning program for three days a week and begin taking dance classes. Oh, and as a bonus, my eight-year-old threw in the statement, "and you will be older then…Continue

The beach. The boardwalk. The ghosts… All Sara wants is to be “normal,” but her paranormal abilities
make that difficult. And, now that she’s moving across the country to an old New Jersey shore town
filled with ghosts, things are getting worse. Because this time, she doesn’t just see the ghosts, she can
hear them, too. Find out more at…

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!!!

I recently took my 11 year old son for his yearly well visit with the pediatrician. At the end of the appointment, and after being assured all was indeed well, the doctor handed me a nifty little printout detailing the visit. The first page listed current height and weight, any labs and tests ordered, results from vision and hearing screening, and any follow up…Continue

On Monday morning, I awoke to find even bigger bags under my eyes and four new grey hairs at the crown of my head. I stared at my tired reflection in the mirror and thought, "Wow, is this REALLY what the next decade is gonna look like?" Here I was all prepared to rock my forties like a champ, but the day sure wasn't getting off to a very good…Continue

Every family has their own morning routines, their own rhythms so to speak. Here is a look into ours!

** If I ever turn up missing, a vineyard in Sonoma is most likely where you'll find me.
** My daughter thinks I was born in 1818. Seriously, she asked if that was my birth year. WTF?!
** Entirely too many people think they have the right of way.
** Elementary School Open House could also be referred to as Nuts on a Stick. …Continue

Don't you just love how candid kids can be? Especially when it comes at your own personal expense? Just think how awesome it would be if, as adults, we could say exactly what we think and have people chuckle and say how darn cute we are. Unfortunately, however, we'd most likely end up getting our asses kicked and be unfriended by every single person we know on Facebook.
Luckily, for my daughter, it's still pretty hilarious when she asks me why my boobs aren't "as big as…Continue

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…Continue

I took on a volunteer position with one of my kids' schools this year and have been doing a pretty good job (if I say so myself).
Then I got sick. That was three weeks ago and I'm just now working on getting rid of my second (or is this one my third?) sickness. I hesitate to say "cold" too loudly because if it hears me, it might come running and lick me on the mouth. Again.

** Your cabin fever's reached Code Red when you're jealous of the squirrels outside breathing in all that fresh, freezing cold air.
** Trying to work a crossword puzzle when you're tired just makes you feel stupid. And tired.
** I've washed my hands so many times over the past few days that I may no longer have fingerprints.

In some ways, I hope my son is just like me. In most ways, I hope he isn’t.
I was an ok kid who liked to run around naked. Front yard nudity is quite harmless when white-tailed deer and turkeys are the only ones to see it. It is, however, a little embarrassing when family friends remember you for it.
The only trouble I really ever caused was behaving inappropriately during inappropriate situations (ie: laughing when my parents were being serious). My sister was usually the one…Continue
