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

And if you are one of the 5 people who decide to join me this week, you're … Continue reading Twisted MixTape 35 – And A Thanksgiving Surprise

If you've read my posts you know that my son has Sensory Processing Disorder, butt wiping is one of the last bastions. So I am basically … Continue reading I Didn’t Even Know My Kid Knew the Word Crack

Recently we moved my husband from a basement office to a first floor room, my … Continue reading Obsolescence and The Deconstructionist
It was the perfect day here in the suburbs of Chicago. We live in a beeeautiful area not far from the lake halfway between Chicago and the Wisconsin border.

So I did a really bad thing. I taught my son something I can't seem to undo. I taught him China doesn't care about us.
