Today is my 35th birthday.  Yay me!.  Turning 35, for whatever reason is a little harder to wrap my head around.  It’s not that I feel that 35 is old, but I can’t help but think “Damn, I am 35, I don’t feel like I should be 35!”   I think it’s just that, even […]

Dear Fellow Moms.

December 20, 2011


Hi! So you’re a mom…it just so happens that I am too?  OMG!  It’s amazing, am I right?  At least most of the time it is…sometimes, well let’s just say sometimes it’s not.  We can all just give each other that “knowing” look and nod our heads at one another to confirm that, hey…we’ve all […]

Guilty of the guilt trip.

May 27, 2011


Long ago, in a time when I knew everything there ever was to know about being a parent, and raising children, I had a list of things I would and wouldn’t do when I became a parent.  I don’t want to completely slam on “lists” of this nature because sometimes I think they help someone form […]

February 18, 2011


I am a mom.   I have kids.  Sometimes I might write about them, and sometimes I might put pictures of them here.  In the past I might have made it appear that I was the perfect mom, with the perfect home, and the perfect marriage, and the perfect kids.  I might have done so […]

Snow Day…Texas style

February 4, 2011


Which means we only got about an inch of snow.  To be fair though it was misting for a couple of hours before it snowed, so it made a nice even layer of ice all over everything.  Trust me, when you live somewhere that doesn’t see a lot of inclement winter weather, you want them to shut […]

Birthdays, Babies, and Life. Oh My!

February 3, 2011


First order of business, just because I mention babies in the title it does not mean I am hinting at my pro-creative status.  In other words ‘I ain’t knocked up..a thankyouverymuch!’  I mention it because my husband finally had THE TALK, you know about where babies come from and how we stop them from coming from there.
