Sometimes Money CAN Buy You Happiness


When your kids are eerily quiet for any extended period of time, nine times out of ten it's because they're trying to burn your house down.  But every once in a blue moon, the stars all align, and the pip squeaks somehow actually manage to..... *gasp*..... play quite nicely together.  Sure, you might have to pay them for that momentary bit of peace and quiet, but we…

The Water Park Souvenir

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??!!)

How to Keep Your Kids From Murdering Each Other This Summer

So if you're anything like me, you're trying your damnedest to find something for your kids to do so that they don't kill each other over summer vacation.  And that "something" would preferably be an activity that keeps 'em occupied for a long stretch of time, perhaps even long enough for Mama to have a well-deserved glass of wine and maybe even *gasp* take a pee in…

Things I've Learned This Week


** Cruise control scares the shit out of me.


** When you travel with kids, it's a trip.  When you travel without them, it's a vacation.


** 99.9% of the water at water parks is a combination of urine and ick.  Probably.


** Trying to get your kids to sleep at a water park is like trying to get a nun to pole…
