Last night I came into my bedroom and was immediately informed that "it" was none of my beeswax. I did not know what "it" was, but was pretty sure that "it" wasn't good. However I am a huge fan of natural consequences and so I walked away. 15 minutes later the boy was screaming … Continue reading The Answer is, You Don’t Get An Answer
One of the proudest days in my life was when I was accepted as a contributor to this book. The Mother of All Meltdowns was full of so many writers I admired I couldn't believe I got to be included right beside them. What amazed me even more was how many people bought our … Continue reading The Mother of All Meltdowns is Turning One!
I only go to Michael's in an emergency; I can't be trusted. This time, I put my blinders on to pick out a birthday present for one of Isaiah's friends. I passed the scrapbook stickers, looked straight ahead as I walked by the colored pencils and didn't even peak at the already-here-way-to-early Halloween decorations. I was surgical, I … Continue reading Mommy Fail Number 235 – Model Car Kit
I think I may have over-advocated for my son a few weeks back. You didn't think there was such a thing did you? It's kind of like Munchausen by Proxy, only not. I wasn't making him sick or faking symptoms or anything. No, instead I was willing to accept a list of possible disorders based … Continue reading I’m not saying YOUR child doesn’t have anxiety. I’m saying just because mine likes to control everything doesn’t mean HE does.
Insomnia will do funny things to your brain. I know. I've had a lot of experience with it. Last night in my insomniatic fugue state I had an imaginary conversation with John Cusack. In my head it all started with a tweet. @JohnCusack did you ever hang out at No Exit over on Glenwood … Continue reading the Time I Almost Tweeted John Cusack or When Reality Infiltrates Fantasy
I often describe myself as trapped in the 70's with all of the rainbows and unicorns. All I ever wanted when I was growing up, was to be a mom. Now that I am a mom. I realize all I ever wanted to be was a mom in the 70s. I am not the soccer … Continue reading All I Ever Wanted Was to be Kitty Forman – The Best 70s Mom Ever
"Oh I get it now, those funny things on the helmets are to protect the skiers..." "What? What are you talking about?" My husband, son and I just left the rec center where we were playing bingo. I'm driving, it's freezing and my body is wracked with shivers as we make our way towards home. … Continue reading And When You Start A Conversation In The Middle of A Sentence I Do Not Find it Amusing
By popular demand, and my own delusions of grandeur, or ridiculous narcissism when it comes to my son. I created a new blog called IsaiahDotCom. Actually he demanded it. I know you might not have enough time or inclination to read another blog. So every week you will find a recap here. But if you … Continue reading Isaiahisms Vol 1
This year when I go to the Oscars Grammys Emmys Tonys family room to watch some awards show Woody Woodpecker, I will be decked out in my finest attire t-shirt and sweats, maybe a hat. I will be getting a ride in a limousine driving a mini-van filled with other super-stars kids philosophizing about penises … Continue reading What Are You Wearing? This Mama’s Taking the #365selfie to the Red Carpet
This week, it is my honor to co-host my favorite blog-hop! (Besides mine, shameless plug) When the call went out for new sentences for Finish the Sentence Friday I thought about how much I enjoy the topics that can be turned to the funny side of things. So I offered "Once I saw the biggest..." … Continue reading It’s Gigantic!
