My son is a pagan. Or something along those lines. Recently, during one of my daily “breakdown of the school day” rap sessions with my little 2nd grader (a.k.a. behavior update and/or early planning for teacher Christmas payoffs) I discovered that Jack has recently had Santa Clause on his little brain. I shouldn’t be surprised. […]
Cider and Pumpkins and Halloween Candy…Oh My!
October. The month of apple spiced candles and warmly colored mums. The official beginning of a guilt-free spree of purchasing Kit Kats and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (and then repurchasing because “Ummm…what happened to those bags of candy? Damn. When did my ankles start getting fat?” The trees begin dropping their brightly colored leaves. […]
The Blessed Weekend
And it’s Monday. I can’t believe how quickly the weekend goes. I remember backwhen I was a working girl (not THAT kind of working girl…gaw…although I totally would have been a Julia Roberts-typeand not her annoying co-prostitute/roommate, Kit). It seemed the week would creep along at a punishingly slow pace. I would gaze at the […]
Humiliation at the Dryer Door
On Wednesday I blogged about my 10 year-old blossoming pride and joy, Avery. In case you missed it, you can read up here. Basically, the gist of the story is that she’s growing up. Rapidly. Gone are the teeny tiny buns, andin their place slightly bigger tiny buns. She’s a burgeoning young lady in a […]
I mean, really… Who said she could grow up?!?
I’m a mother of a 10 year-old girl. Do you know what that means? I can justimagine all the mothers of girls out there raisingcollective sighs to the Universe right now. Ya get me? She’s a good girl. A really good girl, in fact. But I am starting to get glimpses into what will most […]
No More Monsters Under the Bed!
My son is a genius. Not in the “well isn’t he special” kind of way. More in the “I hope he uses his powers for good” kind of way. I envision that he spends his entire day calculating, devising, researching, observing and executing. I present you with Exhibit “A”. The Monster Trap. This particular model […]
Let the Soccer Begin!
Picture it: Numerous sets of banged up knees running chaotically through a field of grass, the object of their one-track minded goal bouncing back and forth from ankle to ankle. The buzz of excitement over any potential contact with said object is palpable to those watching this familiar dance. And then picture this: On the […]
A perfect weekend…
We got home yesterday from a perfect camping trip with my book club. I’ve mentioned this special group of ladies before. You can read up on how we manage to take the “book” out of book club here. For a quick recap for the non-informed (in which case, how dare you not be informed about […]
Is it Monday already? I have never understood that question. In my whole history of histories I have never NOT known it was Monday. For every second of the forty bazillion seconds in a weekend (totally officiall number by the way) I am aware as each passes by. I can feel the impending Monday morning […]
Hello friends! Can we send the kids back to school yet?
Hi there gang! So, it’s been approximately 72 years since my last post. Not much has changed. I’m still a stay-at-home mom. My kids are still lovely. My hubby is still all up in my biz and working from home. I still live in the suburbs. And I’m still just this side of looney bin-bound. […]
