Things I've Learned This Week

** The silverware thief is at it again.

** It's hard to have an adult conversation when you see your kid making armpit farts out of the corner of your eye.

** Crying over spilled milk is totally justified when it's a mere millimeter from your laptop.

** If burping is the sign of a good meal, then snoring is surely the sign of a good…

Things That Make You Go "Hmmm"

Nothing really surprises me when it comes to my kids, but I seriously don't know what possesses them to do some of the crazy, stupid things they do.  And sometimes, it's really really hard to be the parent and not laugh at those crazy, stupid things.  (Cause let's be honest, some of them are pretty freaking hysterical!)  The latest thing that made me go hmmm?  My son decided…

How Patches Lost His Ass

A little over a year ago, I had a momentary lapse in judgment.  Yes, I allowed my daughter to get a pet guinea pig, which was clearly not the smartest decision I ever made, considering that we have a dog who likes to eat EVERYTHING under the sun.  Miraculously, though, the pig and the pooch have somehow managed to co-exist relatively peacefully up until now.  That…

Things I Learned on our Family Vacation

__________________________________________________________

** Seeing his grandma in the buff apparently doesn't phase my son in the least.

** Hot flashes and sea sickness don't mix well with a pirate ship cruise.

** And just because it's a "pirate" cruise does not mean that Johnny Depp…

The Honk Off

I swear my husband gets his jollies by trying to embarrass the crap out of me.  He's always enjoyed putting the car windows down and driving around our neighborhood with the radio blaring full blast.  And believe me, I've seen many an eye roll from our fellow neighbors whenever we go thumping by.  It makes me wanna slump down in the seat and pretend like I'm not really there, even…

Look Out -- Dad's in Charge!!!

When I put my husband in charge of getting the kids somewhere, I can generally expect for at least a handful of important things to be completely forgotten.  Try as he might, he just doesn't run through any sort of mental checklist before he races out the door.  In fact, he's done this ever since the twins were little tiny babies, often leaving the house without so much as a…

Thank God for Summer Camp

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am more than grateful for the genius who came up with the idea for summer camp.  Cause if my kids didn't have somewhere to go each and every day?  They would surely have killed each other by now.  However, as much as I like the idea…

The Bedtime Story Mooning

One of my absolute favorite things to do with my kids is to read to them.  Since I happen to have a borderline obsession with children's books, I get absolutely giddy when they want to share in my love of literature.   That's why the bedtime story is one of my most treasured times of the day -- that is, until one of my twins decides to moon me right in the freakin' middle of…

The Power of a Sock

As a parent, it's not only exhilarating but also necessary for survival to get away from your kids every now and then.  Cause let's face it, as cute and as sweet as they are, they can be a giant pain in the ass.  Am I right, or am I right?  However, as much as I enjoy escaping them, I somehow find myself missing the little devils not too long after I'm gone.  (Pathetic, I…

Girls' Night Out Gone Wrong

This past weekend, some girlfriends and I had organized a fun night out in downtown Chicago.  No husbands, no kids, just us girls kickin' it in the city.  Unfortunately, though, our whole night was planned around a godforsaken musical that we'd bought tickets to see on LivingSocial.  It was called, "Girls Night: The Musical" and promised to be a super fun mix of…
