Until you become an adult, you never really understand that your parents really WERE looking out for your best interests when you were a kid.  As much as you thought they were unfair and totally out to ruin your life, they really did kinda know what they were doing (most of the time anyway).…

The Murder & Resurrection of Raggedy Ann

I love to pass down to my daughter things that I used to have when I was a little girl. It's like I'm sharing a tiny piece of my history with her.  For example, she has my old baby ring that she wears on a necklace, as well as some of my old baby clothes that she uses to dress up her stuffed animals.  And recently, she hit the ultimate jackpot when my mom came across my old Raggedy Ann doll up in the attic.  She was so excited to have…

The Antique Car Show Snafoo

noparking-4

We all know by now that stupid situations are drawn to me like white on rice.  I honestly don't seek them out.  They just somehow always find me.  And this probably explains why my 2012 SUV accidentally found its way into an antique auto show over this past weekend.  Only me, right??!…

The Poop and the Fan

In my house, the poop and the fan need no introduction.  They are quite familiar with each other, especially when my husband is out of town.  Because that's precisely the time that things tend to go very wrong.  And usually, it's right at bedtime -- you know, when I've had just about all the fun I can take for one…

Rainbow Looms for a Cause

If you haven't heard of Rainbow Looms by now, well, then, you've probably been living under a rock.  They are literally EVERYWHERE, and chances are, you may even be wearing one of the bracelets right now.  My daughter and all her friends have been making them like it's their job, and my car could practically autopilot itself to Michael's to buy the replacement bands.…

Milk the Moment

With life constantly throwing reminders at me that my kids are, in fact, growing up (cell phones, sleepovers, bike riding to school -- EEK!), I often get swept up in the everyday craziness of just trying to keep up with it all.  Half the time they don't want to talk to me, let alone listen to me, and,…

Passport Pain in the Ass

One of the standing items on my "to-do" list for the past couple of years has been to get passports for my twins.  (Cause ya just never know when you might need to skip the country, right?)  I knew it was gonna be a huge hassle, which is the main reason I've put it off for so long.  But, in true Nucking Futs…

No Filter

We all know that kids really don't have any kind of a filter when it comes to speaking their minds.  The thoughts just tumble out of their mouths like the trash rolls out of my purse when it falls over.  They don't mean to hurt your feelings -- they just call it like they see it.  For example, when they say I have a…
