Ending the week on a sappy note

Last night Ben and I went out for dinner and drinks with friends who we rarely get to see. We go way back, and whenever we get together, it’s a verbal panic trying to recount everything we’ve done and seen since their last visit. “O.K. the last time we saw you was six months ago at the airport. Tell me everything that’s happened since then. What did you eat on the plane on your way home? Lets start there.”



The girls stayed at Ben’s mom’s house last night so that we didn’t have to… Continue

These are my mom's paintings

I mentioned here the other day that my mom had been a nun when she met my father. I think the story goes something like this: my mom was playing the guitar at her convent when she locked eyes on my dad [a Catholic priest at the time] who was there on some kind of priestly business. She didn’t have a case for her guitar, and when my dad… Continue

Thankfully, I only look like a minor dork

A few weeks ago ParentsAsk.com floated out an open casting call to the online community. Basically, they were looking for moms interested in asking their panel of experts a parenting question....on video. I got in contact with ParentsAsk.com and was all...I’m totally doing this raising kids thing all wrong....pick me, pick me! I mean, if you’re looking for a slack-jawed-clueless-mom then I’m your woman!



Apparently, my parenting ineptitude, as is documented… Continue

What I don't know about soccer

Let’s begin here: I originally misspelled the word ‘soccer’ in this post's title.



Moving on.



Last night Ben informed me that Mexico had beat France in the World Cup and therefore we were obligated to drink tequila. I obliged. I felt that this was the least I could do for the country of which I called ‘home’ for six months. What can I say? I’m a giver.



Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a soccer fan, nor do I understand the significance of Mexico’s win yesterday. [O.K. now,… Continue

Celebrity List

Last night, after the kids were in bed, I got on Twitter and frittered away a good hour, or so. While I was there, I decided to check-out my followers’ profile pages. [And if you’re not on Twitter, that last sentence probably made about as much sense as if I told you that I keep a pair of tube socks in the glove compartment of my car just in case my hands get cold.] Anyway, I came across one of my ‘anonymous’ followers and thought it would be fun… Continue

My dad the priest, my mom the nun

Oh my god, this guy is so hilarious. Listen to this Ben:



Time Magazine's ‘The Awesome Column’ by Joel Stein

"Lately I feel as if I'm being forced to choose between Mexicans and Arizonans, two groups I find adorably quaint. Each loves the elderly, Jesus Christ, eating outside, bad music and not the gays."…

A Mother's Body

Ben and I went out for dinner Saturday night. And, in an effort to notch things up a bit, I let out my ponytail and changed out of my sport bra.





While I was in the shower I thought about what I’d wear, and decided on a pair of jeans that I’d purchased years ago, two pregnancies ago, in Chicago. And people, these are the kind of jeans that require you to bring your A-Game whenever you try them on. The kind that CANNOT go into the dryer,… Continue
