I knew that it would eventually happen. I know kids get older and that things get weird. . . . . .
at least for me. I was hoping that it wouldn't happen this soon!
What am I talking about?
One of my favorite family traditions is languishing. Dying, I tell you. Ever since my son was a baby we've dressed for Halloween as a family. Sometimes we go with a…Continue
The taste of ice cold lemonade, the feeling of the cool grass between your toes, the sounds of children laughing, the smell of sunscreen and chlorine, and seeing your neighbors in their yards… ahh, summer time is finally here! It doesn’t matter your age or what your work schedule looks like, this time of year seems to bring out the fun in most of us. For our kids it is the break they have been looking forward to since New Year. For adults, it reminds us of our own youth and how carefree we…Continue

When I was little, every holiday had a mascot. There were the usual suspects (Santa, Easter Bunny), and then there were the ones my mom made up. Like the one for Valentine's Day.…

Do you have family traditions during the Holidays? I remember when I was a child, every Christmas we'd get new pajamas. The night before Christmas we would wear our new PJs and I couldn't wait to be able to open the presents in the morning. I loved waking up to Christmas music and Christmas breakfast! I even looked forward to those traditions as a teen.…

Sometimes my mom let us eat cake for breakfast. (Maybe "let us eat cake" is the wrong phrase. Maybe I should say "turned a blind eye while we devoured leftover cake.") It wasn't often, but it's something I have vivid and fond memories of from my childhood. (Now that I think about it, I am pretty sure she was eating that cake with us. So, thanks, Mom!)
So, I think of that…Continue

Remember that story a few weeks ago when we lost the mother fucking Elf on the Shelf, and I was all panicked that it might be the last Christmas for believing in Santa in my household? Well, it saddens me beyond words, but I'm pretty sure the jig is up (at…Continue

Sometimes I’ve found myself wondering, who am I exactly? What is it that makes me, me? In my younger days, I thought that I knew exactly what I was all about, but youth sometimes plays tricks on you and makes you think that the world is a much smaller place than it actually is. As my world grew, so many things began to change and I began to see things through different eyes. Our race, gender, education level, social class and so many other elements make us who…Continue

Can white people call themselves ‘mixed’? Can they see themselves as something other than white, if they appear visually white? Sometimes, I don’t know. All my childhood, I struggled with that label…the label of being white, but not feeling white, and not being accepted by “whites”. To me, if feels uncomfortable to identify as white, even though I know that people see me as white, that society treats me as white. My childhood is a confusing one and it seems a bit risky…Continue
