Cringe Worthy Mom Moments pt.2

Happy Saturday!  As promised, here is Part Two of my Top Ten most epic mothering fails.  Mother’s Day is tomorrow, and mommas across the globe await with great expectations to see what their precious offspring have devised in the form of gifts… Will it be another coupon for a free hug?  A card good for one week’s worth of uncomplaining dish-duty? (yes, please) Or will they surprise you and pull […]

Cringe Worthy Mom Moments pt.1

Well folks, Mother’s Day is fast approaching! This Sunday scores of well-meaning children will shower their mothers with slices of burnt toast, spilled orange, and soggy cereal.  We will proudly wear macaroni necklaces and lovingly display ceramic hand prints for all who enter our houses to see. We will feign rest on the couch, while our significant others try to accomplish the feat of maintaining order in our homes without […]

Lock and Key

  So, my mother has been in town for the past week.  All in all it has been a disappointing week—content wise.  My mother has behaved uncharacteristically well.  Turns out, I am a good wife, a good mother, and a decent house-keeper. Who knew? Yesterday we went to the movies to see, Mother’s Day, the new ensemble cast movie that centers around, you guessed it, Mother’s Day.  Some of the […]

Spring Break H20

I didn’t realize how much time had gone by on my blog, until first, I tried to login and couldn’t remember my password, and second, I saw that my last post was about SANTA CLAUS…yes, folks, SANTA CLAUS. Good Grief. Who knew being out of school and unemployed could be so utterly time consuming?  While sitting at home these past six months, consuming mass quantities of chocolate covered bon-bons and […]

The Talk

**WARNING** FOR PARENT EYES ONLY This all started on Friday morning.  Jeff and I were spending a rare day together.  We had some time to work some things out, run some errands, and talk while all of our minions were at school.  Considering that we are two weeks outside of Christmas, we were going to take full advantage of this day…or so I thought. Little did I know, that two […]

Captain Destructo Strikes Again…

It occurred to me that many of my international readers missed out on Captain Destructo’s summer ordeal.  For those of you who may be new to my circus, welcome, and please don’t forget to check your sanity at the door.  For the rest of you, I know why y’all keep coming back–my life makes your life look life a walk in the park with a fist full of dandelions. Captain […]

A Trustable Template

  We all hope that our children grow up to be strong and independent.  Right?  That’s the end goal.  The finish line is in sight.  They cannot live at home, in my house forever?  Eventually they will leave.  I mean, I moved out and away from my parents’ house.  Eventually, my parents moved out of the state and halfway across the country to ensure that I could not move back […]

My Boyfriend

So, the day before yesterday we had a fairly significant cold front blow through Houston.  I went to work out and was sweating as I walked from my truck to the gym.  The heat and humidity was crazy high for mid-November…even for a native Texan, such as myself.  By the time I left the gym, a mere forty-five minutes later, it was pouring down rain, and the temperature had plummeted […]

Crushin’ It!

Yesterday I took Ethan to have his haircut.   Through the course of the appointment, Susan began telling me about her latest adorable addition: Her new grandbaby.  We began to reminisce about all of the years she has been cutting my hair and watching my children grow.  However, she doesn’t often get to physically see my kiddos any more.  My time at the salon is mine! But, Ethan needed an emergency […]

So, I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a crappy couple of days.  Is it Monday?  It feels like it should be Monday.  This Monday has been dragging on and on and on for days… Enough already!  I had a hunch that today was headed straight for the gutter when I attempted to get dressed.  That’s right folks–attempted. The first go-round was not successful.  Repeat: was not successful. Take a good, […]
