My job here is done


Yesterday Sophie took her driving test at the DMV.  I personally like calling it the DMV and refuse to call it the MVC.  I think Governor Christie decided to change the name to fool us into thinking it was some new and improved administrative agency, but it remains the same […]

Momma’s got a big ol’ BUT…


And not the kind that looks good in skinny jeans… Most 13-14 year old boys don’t really want to spend 24 hours a day with Mom. Even Max, who has remained surprisingly cuddly and tolerant into his teen years, has a breaking point.  We have been together going on more than a […]

We’re so big, we even have a guest Blogger


In the middle of the night, a guest blogger named Hun emailed this to me.  He wants to be the next big internet sensation, I guess. Some Profound Words from Hun: “Now that the blog is back and open for business, I thought I would add my two cents. Life […]

6 Month Check Up


I love clean teeth. I nag the kids about brushing their teeth and refuse to let even one required brushing slip past my watchful eyes – but this post is not about oral hygiene. Every six months, from the time the kids were babies, I made sure we scheduled the […]

Just sayin’


Thinking of creating a new life… since I can’t actually create a human life – nor would I even want to at this point…that mess is just plain gross people- and I already have enough people.  I do suddenly want a kitten for some reason.  I suppose it is because […]

Parenting Books


I am addicted. I have read so many parenting books that I can’t even keep them all in my library. I read one after another after another and swear that each one will be the ONE. Perhaps I should have my Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Kindle accounts revoked? I will read any […]

Optical Illusions


I suddenly have so many thoughts swirling through my head… As those of you who read here as regularly as I write… not…know that summer often brings a overwhelming amount of consideration to all things Max. I don’t know if it is simply an inevitable mathematical result because Sophie is […]

Ok… Nevermind


The title belongs to Hun who chided me a bit for whining yesterday.  As soon as I posted yesterday’s entry, Camp called to tell me that Max climbed to the top of the rock wall, rang the bell and then walked across a log plank… all by himself.  The camp […]
