So, if you’ve learned nothing else about me up until now, you’ve at least learned that I’m an avid reader and that I love books…I hope you’ve learned that at least. If not, let me tell you now: I love books. Digital, paperback or hardcover, it makes no difference — I love everything about books … Continue reading Book Review: Big Rock
I believe in Karma. I believe that when you do good deeds, they come back to you in the form of good deeds; and when you do bad deeds, it comes back to you in the form of bad deeds. Sometimes Karma takes her own sweet time in delivering on the goods, but other times … Continue reading Revenge is Sweet!
I like to think I have a sense of humor. I’m good at playing pranks on others, and I’m usually good at being on the receiving end. Usually. Last night, my sense of humor was greatly challenged. My 19 year old daughter is a freshman in college some three hours away. As most parents do, … Continue reading Testing Mom’s Good Humor
As parents, we’ve all done it. Most of us, anyway. We’ve all told that little white lie, with the intention of protecting the imaginations and/or innocence of our children. You know the ones I’m talking about: those itty-bitty, tinnnnny white lies about Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny…or even about Goldie the Goldfish who … Continue reading Santa is watching you! Really…he is! I promise!
I love little kids and the unique way they have of taking everything quite literally. If you say “the sky is falling,” you can be sure that some child will duck for cover. If you say “it’s raining cats and dogs,” some child somewhere will start to cry. Their whole world is very literal. This … Continue reading Will the Real Superman Please Fly Forward?
Some days I wish I could step back in time by about 35 years…back to when I was only 7 or 8 and the world made perfect sense. Or, I assume the world made perfect sense. It seems to make perfect sense to my almost 8 year old son. Just this morning Braden informed me … Continue reading The Wit and Wisdom of Braden (3rd Edition)
Dear Friends: It’s been a while since I’ve posted on this blog. I’ve not died or become MIA; I’ve just been super busy with way too much on my plate and not enough time to sit down and think about what I want to write. Things will get easier once school begins and I send … Continue reading Just Taking a Bit of a Globbing Break
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: There are days when I wish I could crawl inside my son’s brain just to see where and how he comes up with some of the things that come out of his mouth. At 7, his brain is always working. Getting him to bed at … Continue reading To My Future Daughter-in-Law: Please Don’t Hate Me!
When I was a little girl, one of my favorite things to do was to play with my oldest brother’s hair. Mel is 15 years older than I am so, when I was 7, he was already an adult of 22. By the time I was 10, he was an old man in my eyes … Continue reading No Girls Allowed!
I have discovered why some animals eat their young. I didn’t just discover it. To be honest, I’ve known it for a while. If you have children – especially if they’re past that cute toddler stage when their whole worlds revolve around you – then you know what I mean. Some days you almost wish … Continue reading Why Some Animals Eat Their Young
