Blame It On the Bugs

Bugs have taken over my son’s bathroom.  And, coincidentally, his body. It began with a MISSED POOP Friday before school. Followed by a Friday night barfing. The kid never turns down “chiniladas” so I knew something was up.  In the car on the way home from the restaurant, “My neck hurts.”  Two minutes later,...

If You’ve Ever Been Close To Cancer (sponsored video)

February 23, 2012

When I was in college my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She was young (in her forties) and although she found her cancer at an early stage, the diagnosis and treatment was difficult for our family. Because I was away at school I wasn’t able to physically be there to give her hugs,...

Is It Bindi Gone Wrong or Just The Biggest Zit in LA County?

What’s up with the shoulder pads?  I am all for capturing the best of each fashion decade, but I already suffer from a short neck.  The last thing I need is a pair of foam pillows closing in on my ears. Speaking of pads, you know what I love?  My heating pad.  I get...

Valentine Apple Pie

For those of you who played our little game yesterday, the answer is APPLE PIE.  Yes, I know apple pie is not a traditional Valentine’s Day treat, but it could be.  If it had hearts.  So let’s make apple pie with hearts. 1 recipe double pie crust (No, pre-made crust won’t do.  If you...

Almost Too Sick To Play Games. Almost.

Almost Too Sick To Play Games.  Almost.

Weeeell, Hayden is feeling like a champ, but it seems as though his virus simply found a new host.  So you can imagine what kind of humor I am in. Since I didn’t feel like doing much of anything today, there was entirely too much television.  After the so very long yet delightful Mary...

Even the Science Kid Is Sick

Hayden has been down with a virus, but he was well enough to go back to school today.  This morning as I was preparing The Waffle and Honey my sort-of-patiently waiting son was chattering to himself when I heard, “Sick the Science Kid is brought to you by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.” This...

Love Is In the Air…

February 5, 2012

…And so are germs. Once, we had to cancel a trip because the day before our flight he came down with a fever and clearly felt terrible.  We watched and waited over the next few hours in hopes that he would pull through, but by that night he was so crazy with fever he...

That There Is a Little Fella

I really don’t even have to think anymore to keep this blog going.  All I have to do is continue to serve as mother/washer/cook/cleaner/snuggler/driver/go-fish-player for my four year-old. In fact, just about everything he says or does is blog material, and not because I am one of those mommy bloggers who only writes about...

I’m Bringing Carrie Back

January 27, 2012

This morning at 6:57, I am mid-dream after falling back asleep sometime between 5:30 and 6:56. MOMMY! Where’s my silly putty!?!? Which is followed by repetitive toots from a recorder that plays the same note no matter which holes are covered up. So much for my self improvement plan, which involved getting more sleep....

I Don’t Have Any Covers

January 25, 2012

Today, like all days, at way-too-early After I’ve been up until way-too-late I hear the click-click-click Of Hayden turning off his night light Then comes the pat-pat-pat Of his flat little feet And he climbs into my bed with a smile But the sweet warm snuggle Quickly turns to a struggle With move your...
