Talking to Myself

The kids get out of school in ten more days. Yay. I am looking forward to not having to nag about homework for a few months and I am also really excited about not having to wake the dead each morning. I'm not looking forward to feeding the children now that they are home all day but I'm getting used to that. I know that

How Did We Survive?

Originally this post was going to be about awkward family photos. In the another blogger gets a book deal file is this fun site about awkward family photos. I figured I could post a few of my family photos that were just as awkward. The post was going to be a little on the snarky side because I am jealous of any blogger who seems

Get Ready For Summer

Image via Wikipedia Summer officially begins in just a couple of weeks. If you are anything like me you aren't the least bit prepared. It's been unseasonably cold here for the past month, so much that I have been confused about which season is beginning and which is ending.  Just yesterday I pulled out my warm weather clothes.  We went from using the furnace to

Who Did That?

As I was leaving the house yesterday I noticed what looked liked dog kibble all over the yard. I have a dog, and a child who likes to feed the dog, so it didn't seem like an odd thing to see. Except that the kibble was still there and had not been eaten, and that it was placed within animal prints in the same spot

Sound Financial Planning

Daughter: What can you buy for $5? Me: I don't know, do you have $5? Daughter: No, but I will when I win the Trix Yogurt prize under the lid. Me: We don't have Trix Yogurt. Daughter: We could go buy some with the $5 I'm going to win. ## Before I was able to post this she asked me this. Daughter: Mom, how many

Halloween is Coming

You wouldn't know it by looking outside, it really looks like Christmas or at least Thanksgiving but Halloween is just around the corner. I'm one of those moms who waits until the last minute, when there are no good costumes left, to buy my kid their costume. This is one of the many reasons I never get nominated for Mother of the Year. This year

Sunday Sunday, la la, la la la la

I know the song is really Monday Monday but it's Sunday and Mondays aren't usually worth singing about. I'm not a huge baseball fan, when I was about nine my grandparents took me to see the Cincinnati Reds play. This would have been 1975  when the Reds had players like Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Tony Perez and Sparky Anderson. The team was hot. My grandmother

Day 6

It's day 6 of summer vacation and within the first hour I heard the dreaded "Mom, I'm bored". So far we have gone to the library, though we haven't actually read any of the books, we have camped in the back yard and we have been to the park 8 times. I'm the designated mom on the block where all the kids hang out. I'm

My Baby’s First Accident

Who would have thought it would happen only hours after procuring his driver's license? Son was making a left turn with a green arrow. The other driver was going too fast. I wish I knew how to draw a picture. The other driver was oncoming and should have had a red light. Son was in the turning lane. His dad is trying to get video

3rd Time’s a Charm!

The boy passed his drivers license test. Yes it took three tries but he persevered and now he is a licensed driver. In fact he is on the road, by himself, right now. He has no idea where he is going, he has no sense of direction and his dad has not gotten the GPS for him yet but he is only going to school
