The Eating Game

I'm not sure what happened to my middle child, who is now 9 years old. Sometime between the ages of two and three, he dramatically changed his eating habits. Alex went from being the "Baby Who Ate

Broccoli" to "Mr. Picky Eater".

As a toddler, Alex had a pretty diverse pallet. He ate steak, broccoli, mashed potatoes, chicken, hot dogs, apples, oranges, grapes, ... the list goes

on. One by one he developed food phobias and dropped to only a handful

of items he would… Continue

American Idol to the Rescue

American Idol came in the very nick of time, if you ask me. Which nobody did, but whatever. With the writers strike ruining all my current television addictions the little sanity I had left was in tatters. In Minnesota the winters are long and dark and full of viscous cold snaps and cyclical mental instability. Nightly television viewing is one of the 7 food groups up here and without our daily dose we tend to get a little loopy. My body sugars were getting dangerously low and if I had to…

Old Tired Dog

You don't have to have 10 children to appreciate this one:

An old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home. He followed me into the house, down the hall, and fell asleep in a corner. An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.

The next day he was back, resumed his position in the hall, and slept for an hour. This continued…

Saturday & Show Yourself Sunday

Recently when blog-surfing I noticed a few blogs that asked for lurkers

to identify themselves. I thought this was a great request. I am a

relatively new blogger ( March of '07 ), and am a feedback junkie. I

don't have advertisers and need some sort of acknowledgement.

I noticed certain days have themes: Wordless Wednesday, Four for Friday.... and decided to create my own blog day.

Drum Roll..........… Continue

Bye, Bye Globes!

My heart is heavy with sorrow. For an award show junkie like myself it's hard to even act like a normal person in the face of such tragedies. Angelina was nominated. Now I'm not going to get to see her in all her glory with Brad wrapped around her like a second skin. Or Johnny. Honey, I forgive you for Sweeney, really I do. Ellen Page got a nod and she's a hometown girl to boot, and we may never see her there again (but I'm hoping she will because she's so great and Juno was my favorite…

Sweeney Todd

Or should I say dreary, awful, slaughter-house Todd? Then throw in some non-stop singing for a double finger rating. (You know, when you hate a movie so bad you whip out both middle fingers at the screen while the credits are still rolling.) We didn't actually do that in this movie, though, since people were clapping and animatedly talking about how wonderful it was in the seats right next to us, behind us and in front of us. The finger thing would've been over the top even for us, not to…

Mommies need breaks but no one realizes that..

It’s a 24-7 job

and it’s been said a million times before, but it’s one of those things

that people say and get past..”oh, it’s a full time job..blah blah..”

but no one actually cares about the mommy, no one makes the effort to

make it easy for the mommy, no one, least of all the husband!

In cases where the mommy is working, it’s actually easier, because then bringing up the baby is automatically divided, but in cases like mine,…
