Why Padma, Why?

Seriously, why would Padma do a Hardee’s commercial?

Facebook and Twitter are Blurring All the Lines

Once upon a time I had friends from high school and friends from college. Then I had high school friends and college friends and work friends. Then I had high school friends, college friends, work friends, neighborhood friends, friends from the twins club and eventually blog friends. You get the picture. Sometimes we would have […]

What I Need Least

A few minutes ago I thought to myself: The last thing I need in the entire world is Cool Ranch Doritos. Then I thought about it again. While the fact hold that I really don’t need Cool Ranch Doritos, are they the thing I need least in the world? No. There are things I need […]

What is Another Word for Thesaurus?

We taught our children about synonyms recently. It is a pretty cool exercise. Not only are they learning vocabulary they are also really thinking about the words and how close two words are in meaning. Plus, when one of them says “Hey Mommy! Yummy and scrumptious are synonyms!” in front of somebody I look like […]

Scissors Cut Paper. IN YOUR FACE, ADAM!

“Mommy? Are they playing Rock, Paper, Scissors?” “I have no idea what you are talking about.” __ Like most people who decided that they wanted some fine art in their apartment when they were in their early 20’s, along with a Dali poster, we bought this Michelangelo detail print from the ceiling of the Sistine […]

PAM Helps You Pull it Off

Often their father, Darth Vader, whom they refer to as Anakin, gives them permission to go to the movies. Whatever. Here is the thing, Claudia has been telling us that it only makes […]

No Circus for Me

Today I had to explain to my children why we couldn’t go to the circus this year. I t wasn’t the money – we probably could have scored free tickets. It wasn’t that we had other plans that day. It was because their parents don’t like the way the circus treats their animals. I feel […]

Cheese Powder

That’s right. You heard me. I named my post cheese powder. What of it? I have a theory about cheese powder having addictive properties akin to heroin. You think I am crazy. I give you the following examples: Cheetohs Doritos Ritz Toasted Chips, Dairyland Cheddar Flavor Planters Cheez Blass (their spelling, not mine) I challenge […]

The Sex Talk Aftermath

The children are now completely comfortable with how babies get both in and out of their mothers. Both kids enjoy discussing what they did when they were in my uterus. Apparently they played a lot of tic-tac-toe and there were stairs that led up to my brain where there is a couch – for napping. […]

I’ve been wanting to write a post about women’s basketball for a while now and I had so many ideas that I wasn’t sure where to start. Then I was inspired by microblogging . (I love you Twitter.) Instead I will write ten short posts on why you should all be watching women’s basketball, and […]

Come on Yolanda what’s Fonzie like?

If you ever tell your kids to be a couple of little Fonzies… … and they ask who Fonzie is. And you reply that Fonzie is cool. Be prepared to google pictures of Henry Winkler all morning long.
