…and THAT is how I ended up walking around with Hello Kitty underpants in my pocket.

My kids have a summer camp program at their preschool. It is a really fun day camp. They spend most of the morning on the playground and they play in sprinklers and with water tables and there are a ton of crafts and activities for the all of the children. Later in the day they […]

Not a BlogHer Recap, Well Sort of a BlogHer Recap. It is what it is.

This happens to me every year. I come back from BlogHer and suddenly I have nothing to say. It is almost like I feel as if I have already told you everything. In person. I did forget one to tell you one thing. Claudia got her first loose tooth while I was in Chicago. I […]


Son of a… Good Job Proofreaderson Maybe some day these will be a collectors item. I sure hope so. I have 250 of them. *sigh*

When Mommy Travels

I have been home with my twins for five years now. I don’t mean to insinuate that we never leave the house. I don’t even mean to say that I haven’t gone on trips without them. I just mean that for for five years I have been the primary caregiver. I have either been a […]

Caption This

We’re on the road again. I could explain this to you, but I’d rather have you explain it to me. Because, well… look at it.

Et Tu, Uterus?

Let me preface this by saying that I am done having children. I have two wonderful kids. I always wanted two children. I have two children. I had a loss and then a really difficult pregnancy. I had to have a blood transfusion when I gave birth. I had spinal fluid leaking in to my […]

Must Be Time For BlogHer Again

And this time in white!

I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.

I woke up pissed off. I don’t know if it is stress or PMS or what, but I woke up in a foul mood. Last night I realized that if I was going to road trip to BlogHer again I would not be able to do my scheduled co-op day at the kids summer camp. […]

Justify This

Why would one center justify their blog? Unless it was poetry. Doesn’t this look odd?

By Popular Demand

I received several requests from readers who wanted to know how I made Warren Sapp LOL. I would love to claim tremendous wit or a really great joke. But here is the truth. I’m not proud. But on the other hand, if you were high brow you probably wouldn’t be reading me in the first […]
