Time Flies When You're Nucking Futs!!!

It's so hard to believe that this month celebrates THREE awesome years of writing my little Nucking Futs Mama blog.  This right here is my 642nd published post, y'all!  Holy crap, that's a lot of rambling, isn't it??!

And since there's no red carpet roll-out or awards show ceremony to commemorate this monumental occasion (*snark*),…

Who are we blogging to anyway? Is anyone out there???

I love the blogosphere, and since you are reading this, it is safe to assume that you do too!  Blogging is a terrific way to have a discussion with perfect strangers about topics that bring us together.  Perfect example: here we are at MomBloggersClub.com. . . we are all here for one reason: we are mothers seeking information, wanting to share…

Labels, labels everywhere!

A guest post by Amanda Lehrman from The Momma Files. Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. This is her final post in the September Education Series as a guest writer for Mama Tales. With the various spelling strategies taught in school, many parents struggle with which one to use at home. Some of you tell your child to sound out the word, some say to look it up in the dictionary or refer to spell check on the computer. I believe that a combination of…

Writing starts with W!

The third guest post in the September series by Amanda Lehrman from The Momma Files.

Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. Please check back here next Monday for her last post of the September series on tips to prepare your little ones for school.





Writing is funny. There are so many rules to follow, lines to stay in and utensils to use. It's all very technical, especially to a child. In my opinion, it is too technical. By the time we… Continue

Guilt -- It's A Bitch Alright

 

Kids sure have a way of (figuratively) punching you right in the gut when you least expect it, don't they?  Their unassuming words can wash a blanket of guilt right over you in nothing flat.  And before you know it, you're feeling like the suckiest parent in the world and saving your pennies for the future therapy that your kid will inevitably need thanks to…

A (Very) Short Story By My Son

(This story must be prefaced with the fact that it was nothing short of a miracle to get my son to write anything in school at all.  His poor teacher had to practically hypnotize him to get any kind of writing topics to emerge from his little brain.  So yeah, this story's about a giant turd, but hey, at least the kid wrote a story, right??!!)

 

 

Once upon a…

Online Inspiration...and Envy

Seven years ago someone mentioned 'weblogs' and I winced. Why would someone want to go and put their journaling thoughts online for all to see? Good god, what madness is taking over society? We left for Peace Corps in 2000 and returned to the rubbed-and-well-worn jeans look. Cell phones for everyone...and everywhere. And now, diluting of the web with weblogs?!



And then just five years later we welcomed our first child. We were living in the Bay Area and our family lived just far…

Hail to the Handwritten Note



By some standards, handwriting is already considered an “ancient” skill. Next thing we’ll know, it will be an extinct art form practiced by only a few artisans. Well, not in my lifetime if I have anything to do with it! These days, the charm of receiving a handwritten note is manifest (any handwriting will…

The Trouble with Titles

I am always amazed at how some bloggers seem to effortlessly put out a blog a day, day in and day out. I guess they can sit down at their desk in the morning, and over coffee tap out 500 words that are witty, or wise. I just don’t work that way. I am an uber-organized person, or at least I try to pretend I am, and I need to write on a schedule. Everyday, Monday through Friday, I try to write something. I like to write a post for A Mother’s Hood and because I actually get paid at…

Special Occasions Deserve Calligraphy



Want to increase your odds of having your letter be opened? Address it by hand. If you want undeniable certainty that it will be opened first, address it in calligraphy. Hand calligraphy, that is.

The Biscuit and Bygones

I’ve spent the weekend hiding from my family, under the guise of “writing.” I really am writing because…well, I am. The girls have been in school a total of three days in the last eight, and I am going crazy…so I am “working.”

 

Sometimes when I write, I need total silence. Sometimes, I need to write in a noisy Starbucks. Sometimes, I play classical music, and at other times, I watch television or movies. But since I don’t have cable in my office, I have to resort to my DVD…

Having an "aah" Moment

I should be bouncing for joy.



I should be performing cartwheels through the aisle of the study room.



I should be getting strange looks from people because my goofy grin falls to close to the line separating normal and abnormal.



Instead... I'm subdued on my first day with time to myself. From about 10AM to 2:30PM, I have no commitments on Tuesday and Friday. My emotions are cut short of full-blown joy as a mixture of guilt, anxiety, and stress coagulate my… Continue
