What If I Threw The Tantrum For A Change?

I don't know about you, but sometimes, I can't help but laugh my buns off when my kids are throwing an all-out fit.  They just look so incredibly ridiculous to me as they're wailing and screaming and flailing themselves about the floor.  In fact, I've even videotaped one of my daughter's tantrums to show her just what an asshole looks like in action.  Of course, she doesn't find it…

A Happy Heart

 

You know how every once in a while, you have one of those parenting moments which you wish you could just freeze-frame forever?  They can be few and far between, but that's probably what makes 'em so darn special.  Well, I was lucky enough to have one of those "this is what it's all about" memories this past weekend.

 

The setting was my son's…

Charrrrrrrrrrrge!!!!

If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you know by now that Goatdog and I have a love/hate relationship.  Sure, he may look cute and all, but don't let that fool ya for even one little second:

 

 

He is the Tazmanian Devil disguised as an Airedale.  You'd see just what I mean if you were to watch him in action when someone approaches our front…

The Oscillating Fan Fascination

 

What?  You mean you don't have a son who likes to shop at Bed, Bath & Beyond?  Really?  Well, believe it or not, mine does.  Perhaps it's because he's the type of kid, bless his unique little heart, who gets fixated on totally random objects.  Lord knows why, but his latest fascination is a black, plastic clip-on fan, which he apparently saw on a recent laundry basket…

Sari and Her Ray of Sunshine

There are certain people you come across in life who just always make you smile.  They are able to see the glass as half full and bring positivity wherever they go -- kinda like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day.  You can't help but to admire and respect these people cause they make you want to be a better person yourself.

 

My friend, Sari, is one of these amazing people.  I am in constant awe of her optimism, courage and strength.  She somehow juggles three kids,…

Suburban Roller Coaster

 

As overly cautious as we are about protecting our children these days, it's a wonder any of us survived our own childhoods of yesteryear.  Heck, many of us probably rode home from the hospital on our moms' laps IN THE FRONT SEAT OF THE CAR (without a seat belt, no doubt)!!  All this fragility makes me wonder if our kids are missing out on some of the good…

The Ken Necklace

 

To some people, this necklace might look like something the Malibu Barbie serial killer would wear.  But to MY group of friends?  Well, this fine piece of craftsmanship is something to be treasured -- at least until you anonymously pass it along to the next unsuspecting girl.

 

It all started last year when it was used as a prop in a very creative…
