… but I’m not. You see I have a husband who is a veteran (although he can’t get into the local VFW because he was never in a foreign war)– I have a dad, stepdad in law, cousins, uncles, etc. that ARE veterans. That served in foreign wars. They deserve my respect every day, yes […]
YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE
That’s what the young kids are saying these days. The teens, the tweens, and then getting into trouble. You only live once, so party it up. I can think of so many better things to do with that saying… can’t you? Please leave a comment with your yolo!
You only live once…so do […]
…this whole driving yourself this is for peasants. I’d get a lot more accomplished if I didn’t have such an unhealthy attitude toward driving. Part of it is just not feeling very well, the weather is garbage all the time anymore, and it’s extremely frustrating to not know if you’re going to have a ‘sick’ […]
We had an errand to run in our big city yesterday so we had quite a drive ahead of us. We left when the girls should have been napping. It definitely took it’s toll on our little toddler, but the big kid only set up in whines after we were home, so that’s pretty good. […]
… about the time my mom said something hilarious and true to my grandmother (God rest her immortal soul). You see years ago, in the ‘rhymes with flap-tist’ religion, they preached against a lot of things. Dating Catholics. Being around races other than yourself. Jews. FROM THE PULPIT. So it was in her to rant […]
As I pondered my first child’s in-utero actions, she seemed so calm, until we saw her U/S and she was moving, flailing, kicking, all crazy like. That eventually led to rowdiness where she could be felt, and then a wham-o water breaking. Hmm. Seems familiar. Like her hyper attitude and unpredictable behavior now.
Then there’s my […]
I recently read an article written by an anonymous dad/soon to be dad to future twins. He and his wife are in their 40s and tried repeatedly to give their son a sibling. They wanted a girl. When nature didn’t pan out, they did several things before IVF worked the first time. Now he’s ‘complaining’ […]
You’re hurridly putting laundry in the washer when it happens. A child screams ‘noooo’. You’re not sure which one. Your heart skips a beat. You’ll never get that one back. You rush in, your adrenaline surging, bile rising in your throat. You slide to a stop, looking at both, seemingly whole, unaffected children and screech […]
As I was loading up (and later disgorging) all the recycling it occurred to me (not for the first time) that our trash really tells a lot about us. After all, that’s what anthropologists use to discover the habits of ancient tribes. Broken pottery, gnawed bones, scraps of fabric, they all tell stories about how […]
I read a blog post recently where someone sheepishly said that they never posted about how cranky their kids are, and just posted the good stuff, because they figured no one wanted to hear it. Basically because it looks bad. They didn’t want to record it. There’s a new blog (the author has already been […]
