Marking “Maybe”

I get a lot of Facebook invitations. You know the ones I mean, the cool art gallery openings and the funky brass band playing downtown? The exhibit on the history of my town, the Superbowl party, or maybe a bar-hopping birthday party. Every single one looks awesome. Each one that pops up on my feed […]

Multi-Purpose Laundry Baskets

When J comes back from visiting his dad, he always gets the option of sleeping in my bed the first night back. It started a while back as a way for us to catch up after a weekend away. He climbs in my bed, we read a little, and then he talks about his weekend […]

Teetering

“These are baby socks!” He tossed them away, refusing to put them on his feet. I tried everything I could to convince him they were regular, normal, socks but he just wasn’t having it. He refused to wear them this weekend, opting instead for his Crocs that required no socks.  The next day it was […]

Happy “ever after” in the Marketplace

So approximately five years ago, I sat down and created my very first blog… inspired by the fact that I could actually post my thoughts and ideas and what not to the internet. It was sort of… underwhelming… at first. I posted and joined Twitter and found other blogs I enjoyed. I wrote about J […]

Making the Tough Choices

Packed for Disaster

Sometime over Christmas break, J developed what he calls his “disaster kit.” It’s basically a tote bag that has a variety of items in it, such as sun screen, chapstick, a map, a guidebook to Barcelona, a flashlight, and various other random things. He carries it… everywhere… and at first it was a little annoying. […]

I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means…

You know how they say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results? Yeah… I’m pretty sure whoever coined that phrase was a parent and what they meant was, quite simply, that parents are insane. Because I find myself daily in situations where I’m asking […]

Happy New Year!

So then what’s up, 2015? Or as I’ve taken to calling it “Twenty-pimp-teen.” Don’t ask me  why… I have no good reason and it’s a stupid name. It’s only the 6th day and already I can feel a buzz surrounding this year; I’m not sure yet what kind of a buzz it is, but there’s […]
