For whatever reason, my kids don’t get invited to a lot of birthday parties.  When my niece was Goose’s age, she had a party almost every weekend.  Or so it seemed.  I was kind of worried once Goose started school that that would be the case with us.  For the past two school years, he […]

For Today…June 22, 2011 Outside my window…it’s raining.  FINALLY.  Oh glorious rain how we have missed you.  I admit you put a cramp in my plans for the day, but I have already rescheduled lunch for cupcakes, so all is good.  This morning, the Baby Hulk  came up with words to describe the weather.  He […]

If only everyday were a break dancing marathon in my house.  I would never raise my voice, roll my eyes or complain that no one listens to me. Times like this make every middle of the night wake up call worthwhile. Squirt has been teaching the boys to break dance.  Yes, break dance.  He even […]

For Today…Sunday, May 29, 2011 Outside my window…it’s dark, hot, the sprinkler is running.  Our poor grass shows signs of the heat.  We aren’t the best yard people so the fact that we are watering the yard is a big deal. I am wearing…a cool shirt, Snoopy boxers and flip flops.  Half of me is […]

Today is Squirt’s birthday.  He is sixteen now.  Yes, I have a sixteen year old boy.  And no, I can’t believe it.  When did this happen? Squirt, you are now closer to being a man than a boy.  And while overall I like what I see, you have no idea how it scares me to […]

After nonstop play-dates, Friday was finally going to be mine, and it is.  I just happen to feel like dirt.  And I’m not blaming it on the three glasses of wine I had last night.  I started feeling sick midway through.  I am feeling so badly that I skipped the gym so I could come […]

Yesterday was a calm day for us.  We slept in until 8:20, the first time in months and had a lazy day ending with Mass for the family. Lance asked each boy what they loved about me, their favorite thing to do with me and their favorite food I make. Squirt: that I am caring, […]

The other day I decided that I needed to make myself look good. Presentable. I ran into a friend from the swim club at Costco and there I was: hair up, still in my gym clothes. And I was embarrassed. Because I always look like that. This lady has never seen me look good. So […]

Am I a Grinch about certain Christmas traditions? Maybe a bit. Let’s just say I’m over Elf on the Shelf and it’s only day one for him in our house. I decorated yesterday, and out he came to watch over the kids so he could report their behavior to Santa. Cute idea, I guess, but […]

For Today…May 31, 2010 Outside my window…Did I mention I live in Texas? Houston to be exact? Everyone thinks Austin has much nicer weather. I went to school there, I remember, it doesn’t. Humid and Hot is still Humid and Hot no matter where you are. Austin has so much we want to do outdoors […]
