I think I’m funny. People say I’m funny. But my kids? Not so much. Actual conversation between me and Little Girl: LG: Daddy’s so funny. Me: Yeah he is. LG: You’re not funny though. Me: I’m not? LG: Nope. Me: oh…kay… LG: (consolingly) It’s all right. You’re just a Mommy. And… There you go.
The twins went on their first kindergarten field trip this week. I didn’t want to go. I know, I know. BAD mommy. Little Boy has already been giving me the guilt trip about how the neighbor kids’ mom works at the school and is there ALL DAY. “Why can’t you be at the school allContinue reading “Guilt Assuaged”
Little Girl, my five-year-old, was eating a soft taco from Taco Bell in front of the TV. (No one can say I don’t feed my kids the best around here!) While I wasn’t looking, she started picking off the shredded lettuce and tossing it, piece by piece, on the living room floor. It’s like sheContinue reading “As if I weren’t already crazy”

This makes things easier for the arrangement of furniture, and also makes the room safer. After all, Little Girl cut herContinue reading “Decor in the Twins’ Room”
Little Girl had a friend from the neighborhood (R) come to play at the house after school.

Both girls were yellingContinue reading “The Story of the Yellow String”
I would like for everyone to celebrate with me, as I passed a major parenting milestone this summer. …wait for it…. EVERYONE CAN PUT ON THEIR OWN SEAT BELTS IN THE CAR NOW!!!!!!!!! Can you believe it? Now, to those of you who don’t have little kids, or have forgotten what it’s like to haveContinue reading “A Major Milestone”
Over the weekend we went to Sea Life Park, which is here on O’ahu. (My friend had discount passes. Score!) I had heard it was not as nice as bigger parks like Sea World in Florida but I was pleasantly surprised. It was small but there were a lot of nice animals to see. PlusContinue reading “Dolphins and Penguins and Sharks, Oh My!”
I picked up Happy Meals for the twins in the drive-thru and passed the food to the backseat while driving to keep them quiet for five minutes. What, like YOU’VE never done that?! Little Boy opened his and exclaimed: “Awww, a FART GUN?! We already HAVE a fart gun.” Sometimes you look at your kids andContinue reading “How to tell that you’ve been eating at McDonald’s too often”
