Dangerous 

May 20, 2016

How do we teach our children how scary the world can be? How do we teach them to be cautious but not scared of everything? How do we enlighten them to the yucky things out there without giving them nightmares? Last week my daughter was outside on the playground with a friend while her class went back into the building. […]

It’s a shitty situation

February 22, 2016

This blog is not meant for sensitive stomachs or squeamish eyes. Please explain to me why boys (we’ll keep this subject matter focused on children although it’s possible a whole separate version of this story could be told for husbands) are the messiest, grossest people to share a bathroom with. Especially in regards to the toilet. I don’t understand how […]

Carbs are the devil!!!

May 5, 2016

Somewhere along the way, I have been conditioned into thinking carbs are the devil. Even worse – if I’m going to go down the road of enjoying carbs, I better not eat them at night!  And although I don’t religiously observe this message, I had a hearty dose of mac and cheese the other night even though I only had […]

The Next Chapter

May 19, 2016

In another life not that long ago, I had a great job. I loved that job. I was on a path. That path was going in only one direction – up. I worked hard in high school to get into a good college. I busted my butt in college to do well. I applied to every job under the sun […]

Tragedy Close to Home

May 10, 2016

Recently there was a woman who was killed driving home with her family from a close vacation spot who was hit by a random bullet. That bullet didn’t have her in mind, but it hit her nonetheless. Her two children will now grow up without a mother and her husband instantly became a widower all because of a random bullet. […]

Top 15 Things I Want for Mother’s Day

May 7, 2016

Forget flowers and presents, this is what I want for Mother’s Day. I want one day where my kids… 1. Do exactly what I say and never once say NO! (Can you imagine saying “no” when your parents asked you do to something?! I certainly can’t!) 2. Similar to the aforementioned request, when I say “put your shoes on.” PUT […]

Support System

May 4, 2016

When our babies are young, we start them in playgroups. Why? What’s the point of a bunch of small babies eating each others’ rattles and spitting up on each others’ socks? I’m sure in some way we are teaching our children early socialization skills. More importantly, the mothers are finding an outlet. We are trying to reach out to people […]

Foreign to Me

April 21, 2016

This whole boy thing is completely foreign to me. I never grew up with a brother, I was never forced to do boy things or be exposed to boy interests…at least until my husband came around. Now I find myself in a world of baseball cups (yes those things they wear in the crotch of their baseball pants), action figures, […]

Picture-esque “Sibling Day”

April 11, 2016

I do not understand this whole “Sibling Day” business. And no I’m not talking about how there is literally some version of a made up, Hallmark holiday every other day. I’m speaking specifically of this incredibly strange, multi-faceted relationship siblings have. I just don’t get it! For starters, I’m an only child. I grew up in a household where all […]

Enough’s Enough?

April 7, 2016

I have never been the kind of parent that says, “not my kid.”  Rather, I am the first to suspect my kid is up to no good.  Because of this, I have always been on the teacher’s side first and foremost.  Any time the teacher mentioned something my kid did (or didn’t do as the case may be) in school, […]

Poor Third Child

March 23, 2016

Oh no, not here, not now…you are not choosing TODAY to be potty-trained!!! Noah decided today was the day for underwear. I can’t tell you how that should be music to my ears, but it just isn’t. I must go to the gym, I have a mani/pedi date, Adam is out of town – this is NOT the day to […]

NCAA gone wild!!!

March 18, 2016

You wouldn’t take an alcoholic on a bar crawl, then why would you let a child who exercises poor sportsmanship a NCAA bracket?!?? Despite not being very into sports my whole life, March Madness has always brought about a fun buzz that I’ve really gotten into. It helped going to a school like Indiana University during the Bobby Knight years. […]
