The funny thing about Halloween is that I hate dressing up.  I would avoid a costume party at all costs.  Thankfully, Lance feels the same way.  As for our kids, they love dressing up.  And Lance loves to dress them.  He does it to impress Chris.  Really, that’s it.  In fact, twice we’ve gone straight […]

I constantly talk about how cool it is that Goose loves football and sports in general.  This morning, he took out his sports coat to wear to church.  After getting dressed he told me that this is what he is going to wear when he works for ESPN.

Santa and Jesus

Today at mass, right after Holy Communion we were kneeling and praying.  Goose was next to me and said he had one wish.  He wanted to meet… For a brief second, I allowed myself to get so excited.  Here was my son, and he was about to tell me how he wanted to see Jesus […]

 We had our back to school lunch on Saturday.  Lance had too much work so he couldn’t go with us, and the little boys, well, their behavior sucked all week so they stayed home as well. That was fine, it was just me and three of my favorite people having one last meal before school. […]

Extra Room Needed

We have a new member of the family.  No, we didn’t have another baby nor did we get a dog.  Just this little guy that Goose calls “plush bear”.  He tends to be really original in naming his stuffed animals. Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you.  This bear takes up more room than my […]

Watching your kids play together is a dream for any parent, I’m sure.  What I have loved watching is the creativity. I admit that for half a second my first thought was “who is going to clean up this mess.”  Thankfully, I kept my mouth shut and just ran for the camera. The best part […]

Goose, you are seven.  I still can’t believe it.  In the blink of an eye this year has passed.  And I fear with each year to come, I will feel the same.  I have a little boy who is starting second grade way too soon for me.  But how you’ve grown this year. Physically, you’re […]

Did you know it is Teacher Appreciation Week?  I still can’t believe teachers get a week, but I suppose that complaint is getting old.  The irony of this week is that I, hater of Goose’s first grade teacher, was selected by his homeroom mother to take lunch and a gift card tomorrow.  Really?  Why me? […]

Kids and Purgatory

I talk a lot about Purgatory in my house.  As a Catholic I truly believe that when I die I will be making a stop in Purgatory.  I stress over and over to my children to pray constantly for my soul so I’m not stuck in Purgatory.  I tell them not to fall for sweet […]

If I were doing ApeDonkey’s power ratings, I would have a lot in the bottom five…When you start the week with your orthodontist hanging up on you, your son’s favorite (for now) College basketball team playing so badly it goes down in the history books for worst performance in the NCAA championship game, things can […]
