I Give Up

The same child who I have seen eat week old Teddy Grahams off the floor of my minivan refuses to throw up in a dirty bowl. * throws hands up in the air and walks away*

The Upside of Vomit

A lot of you are pregnant with your first child or are trying to get pregnant with your first child. If you fall into one of these categories you may want to hold off reading this particular post until your children are teenagers. I’m sure when we all all worried about teen pregnancy and drug […]

Just Me?

Is it just me of does anyone else sit around wondering if this whole HFCS debacle is really just the result of the heir to the high-fructose corn syrups ex-girlfriend. Like maybe he cheated on her or something and she used to be his PR representative and she was really really good at it so […]

Getting Something Right

Most of the time I walk around feeling like a complete failure as a mother. This is partly because my kids weren’t potty trained until they were four, partly because they can’t read, and partly because nobody ever tells you that you are doing a good job as a mother unless you give them a […]

Who am I to Disagree?

The other day as I found the missing Didj games with my super mom powers I said to my children “See? Don’t you have the best mother in the world?” And they said “No. YOU have the best mother in the world.” Those little ingrates are probably right.

Oh Chuck E. Cheese’s – you are so clever. You have positioned yourself in the same shopping center as my Trader Joe’s and my wine store. I cannot hide from you now that the children know you are there. Your sign mocks me. As we left Trader Joe’s today this happened: Claudia: Mom, can we […]


Back story: I was going through and looking at some of my old tweets on Twitter. Sometimes I think blogs suffer because we are using Twitter instead. GoonSquadSarah I love it when I find long lost friends on Facebook. It almost makes up for finding the long lost enemies. ____ One time I got out […]

Reviewing the Idea of Reviews

On the rare Sunday that I actually get a chance to sit down with the newspaper I reach right for the Book section. Okay, that isn’t exactly true. I always read the Sports section first, but right after that I pick up the book section. See, the Washington Post has this really cool book review […]

My Blog Pet Peeve

There are a lot of things that piss me off. I am a fairly unreasonable human being. I’m not kidding, you can ask my husband, my mom or any poor sucker that has gotten stuck listening to me rant and rave about how much I hate Kurt Warner this week. Whatever. I am off topic […]
