This One Speaks For Itself

December 9, 2010

By now you know I hate being sick.  I whined about it yesterday. So when I woke up this morning with a throat that hurt more than I-don’t-know-what and an uvula the size of a golfball, I wasn’t sure what I was dreading more.  A trip to the ER (yes, because I am super...

Oh, Poo. Boo Hoo.

December 8, 2010

Hayden brings home viral per-school germie germs every day.  We wash hands, eat our greens, and do the best we can.  I pride myself on staying well.  Besides, I don’t have time for sickness.  So you can imagine the defeat I felt when I went to bed last night with the smallest of sore...

Slumpy Frumpy Grumpy.

November 29, 2010

I am feeling slumpy.  Frumpy.  A little bit grumpy.  I am in a teeny writing slump.  And I don’t like it.  I know everyone goes through this from time to time, but I still don’t like it. S is off snowboarding, H is at school, and you’d think that I would be rushing to...

The Day After Thanksgiving

November 26, 2010

It’s 2 o’clock in the afternoon.  I am still feeling all of the turkey, apple crisp, and wine from last night. I didn’t run this morning.  I am still in my pajamas.  The pants have dried beef chili all over them. I haven’t washed my face yet today, much less taken a shower.  I...

Giant Scary Vegetable Penis

November 19, 2010

This evening’s Play Doh scenario: Hayden: I want to make a giant vegetable.  A scary one. Mommy:  Ooo, a giant vegetable?  Beaming with pride because my three year-old loves vegetables so much that he wants to make them out of Play Doh. Daddy: Why scary? Hayden: I want it to be scary like Halloween....

Little Lovebirds

November 15, 2010

They met at the gym.  Kindergym, to be exact.  And it was love at first sight.   And now, my three year-old has a girlfriend. This is legit.  Starry-eyed, hand-holding, I want to tickle you, completely crazy love. The girl is great.  We love her.   In fact, if they manage to avoid cooties and grow...

Mommy, I Need You To Take Care Of Me

November 10, 2010

This is what Hayden says to me after a fake bobo he reportedly sustained on the landing of our poorly carpeted stairs (other than rugburn on the bottoms of his feet, there was no possibility of injury caused by our rough, yet cushioned, carpet). Mommy, I need you to take care of me. As...

Date Night

November 3, 2010

Scott sits down at the table with his coffee and cereal. We attempt a conversation, which consists of half-sentences broken up by Hayden’s demands for attention. “Read me this book, Mommy.” “I will, after I finish my cereal.” We exchange a few more words, mostly about his work, or the course of Hayden’s latest...

Mission Accomplished

November 1, 2010
Mission Accomplished

I am sure those of you who have been following The Making Of a Manta Ray Costume are eagerly awaiting the final product.  It was completed on time and worn with enthusiasm. Did my sewing exhibit expertise?  No. Did my “measurements” work out the first time?  The second time?  The third time?  No. Did...

It’s Friday. Let’s Rock.

October 29, 2010

As I kiss Hayden goodbye, I can feel this morning’s coffee in my bladder.  I go through a mental checklist of all the things I need to get done in the next three hours.  As I turn the corner, my car escapes the shade of giant oaks and I can feel the warmth of...

Phase 3- Check.

October 24, 2010
Phase 3- Check.

Phase 1- devise a plan.  Phase 2- execute the plan.  Phase 3- create something recognizable. This is seriously happening.  This Making Of a Manta Ray Costume.  I have the main body all pieced together, and after chasing Hayden down several times for a “fitting” I think I finally have the proportions right.  Or, at...

Phase 1- Check. Phase 2- Check.

October 15, 2010
Phase 1- Check.  Phase 2- Check.

I devised a plan.  Mapped it out, on paper.  And now, the plan is being executed.  I have officially completed phase 2 of The Making Of a Manta Ray Costume (phase 1 being the plan). Despite my amateur sewing skills and general lack of craftiness, this is actually happening.  Yes, I have created some...

And They Will Know Us By the Length Of Our Toes

October 6, 2010

After another failed attempt to feed my child refried beans and cheese, I think, “How can we possibly share the same genes?”  when we have so many differences. Like his fear of the swing, when I spent countless hours of my childhood swinging as high as the tree branches, and Scott thrives on flying...

Since When Is It Not Okay To Have Feelings?

October 2, 2010

I really have something I need to get off my chest (as if I don’t do that here already). Lately, I have been getting numerous “comments” to my posts that are, well, more like messages of a personal agenda to save me.  Comments from readers that they are worried about me and will be...
