Have you ever noticed that when you tell a kid to do something they don’t want to do, they act like they don’t understand? ME: Time to do your homework. KID: What? ME: Time. to. DO. your. HOME. WORK. KID: Home? Work? ME: Did you brush your teeth? KID: What? ME: Your teeth. Did youContinue reading “I don’t know what you’re talking about”
My oldest daughter ET got married. I know; I’m nowhere NEAR old enough for this. And how is it that SHE is old enough? When I started this blog she was thirteen, so I gave her the name ET for Evil Teenager. Now she’s 23 (!) and no longer a teenager at all. (But stillContinue reading “So, now I’m a mother-in-law?”
A little while back I wrote about a secret admirer note that Little Boy received in his locker. (It was addressed some guy called Hugh.)

I don’t know who is in charge of choosing the marketing demographic for people they send this mailing to, but they need to be fired immediately. Anyone whoContinue reading “A Marketing Fail”
I’m very annoyed with Two-Hours-Ago Me, who chose to read a book after dinner. I just came in to the kitchen and found that the dishes aren’t done. So I guess Two-Hours-Ago Me thought it would be OK to just shove this job off onto Future Me. It seemed OK to her. But now thatContinue reading “How (NOT) To Get Things Done”
So the twins are officially in middle school now. I know this for sure, not just because I took them to their new sixth grade class last week and helped them navigate their class schedule and learn to open their lockers. These are of course important middle school milestones, but today we reached another crucialContinue reading “Middle School Begins”
I’ve got a lot of things to do. I really need to get started… …but first I have an important question: “Is it BY accident or ON accident?” I really need to know.
