Yes, I said Elephants and Butts

If upon the request of my children I am currently doing an image search for elephant’s butts does that make me the cool mom or a bad influence?

We’re a Happy Family (Me, Mom and Daddy)

If your kid was singing “Hey ho let’s go, put me in the bath tub.” And you were all like “No, no, honey. It’s shoot ’em in the back now.” You would feel really stupid after you realized what you had done. Just like I did. Especially if you were at Trader Joe’s and all […]

A Mother’s Secret Weapon

Dear Ian, When you are old enough to read this I will be ready for you to know the secret. It isn’t that I really have eyes in the back of my head, it is that nothing else sounds like a kid chewing on a Lego. You will understand when you are a parent. Love, […]

He is So Metal

Ian: Mommy. Thunder is wearing chains with spikes on them. He is a death horse. I am going to stand on him and hold two swords at the same time. He is like the DEVIL! Rides off on imaginary death horse. Me: (in my best Nathan Explosion voice) Metal. Flashes devil horns to son who […]

A Redneck Shower

My friend and blog idol Tanis (you probably know her as Redneck Mommy) brought home a bouncing baby boy yesterday. Okay, well he might not technically be a baby. He is five, but either way he was welcomed home as part of her family for the first time yesterday. Now, since Tanis has this mothering […]
