Love is the Greatest Gift of All

Love is the Greatest Gift of All

We’re coming off of a really fun weekend in our house. And unlike usual, when I’m exhausted and ready to get back to our usual routine, I’m actually wishing for another day. Now, don’t get on my case about my usual feelings about the weekend. […]

Boobies!

Boobies!

My daughter has recently figured out that one day she and her brother will grow up and get “big” like me and my husband are. As a result, she has been particularly vocal about the fact that she cannot wait to have “big boobies like […]

These Things are Good Things!

These Things are Good Things!

I am sure most of you have read Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat. I’ll just assume this and move on (though you know what happens when you assume… sorry, bad joke). Anyway, if you don’t remember, the Cat in the Hat takes these […]

I Will Get Back Up Again!

I Will Get Back Up Again!

Pretty much everyone I know has told us to watch the movie Trolls. We finally took the advice and watched it this weekend. We have watched it three times already (it’s only Monday – that’s once per day). I’m pretty sure this movie is going […]

Honesty Is The Best Policy?

When you’ve started a blog centered around humor, and your kid flatly tells you that you are not funny, you momentarily reevaluate things. Then you step back for a second and realize that the person evaluating your humor is a toddler, and you reevaluate your […]

Delicious > Healthy

Delicious > Healthy

Show of hands: who eats unhealthy food in secret not in front of their kids? I do. I’m not afraid to admit it. My children are impossible some days on the eating front – I’ve written (complained, I’m sure) about it before. I’ve resorted to […]

Cool, man, cool.

Cool, man, cool.

Today was full of quotatable gems. My daughter threw so many softballs at me today. I now have four doodles coming up from just today. Score! I’ll keep this one short, since mommy needs a good night’s sleep after a 5am wake-up. Thanks, kid. My […]

Happy Love Day!

Happy Love Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day from my crew of cupcakes to yours! I used to despise this holiday. Yes, I was part of the anti-Hallmark-holiday club. Then I became a mom and I LOVE it. My son is still a little too small to get it (though […]

Personal Space

Personal Space

We’re smack in the middle of a rude phase, and I was not prepared. If this is a precursor to having a teenager, then you can find me hiding in a corner somewhere. We are attempting to nip it in the bud, obvi. Today she […]

SO BIG!

SO BIG!

Excuse me while I get a little sentimental today. Parenthood is so confusing. As if I needed another reason to get emotional. I was already too dramatic before kids (according to my husband and mother; I’m not admitting this publicly). We had a long week […]
