Is Snarkiness Hereditary?

This has been such a busy week, and my kids have made it a hilarious one. They have been demonstrating such snarkiness lately that is hilarious and also a bit disturbing. Hilarious, because I myself am known for my snark (in a loving way...sometimes...with family and friends...sometimes). Disturbing because they are so young, and it can veer from funny to rude. Not so good. Well, I'll deal with it as it happens.…

They Can't Take Santa

I love my children. They are absolutely unbreakable and strong in spirit and it is SO inspiring. Today my 8 and 9 yr old found out from the other kids in school (and a teacher!) that Santa Claus isn't real. Totally heartbreaking, because I was determined to let them ride that train for a very long time. But with confirmation from a teacher, they weren't buying anything I was trying to sell them. My youngest had fallen asleep already, so luckily his dreams were still intact. So finally, we…

After Thanksgiving Sale

I am totally hyped to say that my Thanksgiving was awesome. I spent it with the people I love, it was quiet and peaceful, and the food was amazing. Way to go, Mom, by the way! I skipped Black Friday because besides being broke beyond belief, I wanted to just lay around with my babies. And that is exactly what we did. My children enjoyed a 5 hour Power Rangers marathon, again, which I ain't gonna lie, I did…

One Day at a Time

Lately, I have two types of days. A good day, and a miserable day. Today was a good day. I took a leave of absence from work to deal with what's going on in my life. Good for me and my kids, terrible for my wallet. But my routine became to wake up, take kids to school, come back home, crawl into bed and just lay there. Sometimes I would sleep away the day, escaping the misery I was feeling, other days I would just lay there…

How Did This Happen?

Well, almost two years ago, I decided to take a break from blogging to focus on my family. The father of my children and I had reunited, and things were looking amazing. And they were. At least, that's what I thought. October 29,2011 was the worst night of my life. I found out something earth-shattering, something heart-breakingly devastating. I had let a monster back into my life, and even…

Mommy, I Don't Think Grandma Likes Us

This morning my daughter said 7 words that broke my heart.

"Mommy, I don't think Grandma likes us."

If you have been following my blog from the beginning then you already know that I had to move in with my mother when the house we were renting from was sold. My mother has been a huge help by providing a roof over my head and my children’s’ heads. She also watches them after school until I get home and feeds them dinner since I don’t get home until 9pm. She picks my youngest up from… Continue

Mommy, I Want a Car...Oh, Yeah, I'm Moving Out.

Well, my babies are growing up. It’s so sad. Just today my youngest son told me he was moving out. Sigh, how the days go by…





Jordan: Mommy, I’m a big boy now.

Me (as I am giving my “big boy” a bath): Yes you are, honey.

J: I’m gonna grow this tall and be big like you.” Stretches up on his tippy toes and holds his hand about 3 inches above where his head is.

Me: Oh, my. That is big.

J: I’m so big, I want a green car.

Me (startled giggle): Oh, do you now?… Continue

Halloween Gripes

Now that I have allowed myself to bask in the glory of a fun-filled evening with my children, I feel free to bemoan the idiocies that abounded over the weekend. Prepare yourself, because when I am crabby, I’m unkind. And boy, am I feeling crabby. Don’t worry, I’ll be nice again tomorrow. :)



Dear Negligent Mother,



Is that your child running willy-nilly across the street? Is that you strolling half a block away? Hmm…this does not bode well for your child. Do you maybe want… Continue

Umm, Should I Be Scared? And Wow Do I Need To Monitor What My Kids Watch A Lot Better!

Ok, so here’s the deal. I’m not exactly as vigilant as I should be about what my kids watch. I tend to watch something, get seriously into it, and then when it’s too late, notice my kids are with me watching it, and it is TOTALLY inappropriate. Bad news. Well, this bad habit has come back to bite me in the ass in a somewhat disturbing, yet totally hilarious way. %

Here is a pic of my son’s latest homework assignment, front and back.…
