Die Family Game Night, Die

Wednesday is family game night, and we either play Cranium with my parents and pretend to let the kids play, or we stay home and let the kids pick a game. (Riveting, yes?) Alex received Monopoly Junior for her birthday, so it was the game of choice. For those of you who have not played this game, it... Sign in to see full entry.

Oh my! It may be in... the back seat!!! Call Haz Mat

The back seat of my car is a disaster area. I read something once (I would cite my source, but seriously, I read Good Housekeeping at the dentist and People at the gynecologist, it can’t be that hard to find if you want to) about how when you have kids and a life and all that jazz you have to “let...

Um, are you kidding?

I say that a lot during the day. Mostly in my head. When the fat mother at my daughter’s school comes up and asks if I think she looks fat in her new capri pants. Um, are you kidding? When my husband calls and says it’d be okay if I drop by and bring him some lunch today. Um, are you kidding? When... Sign in to see full entry.

Tonight is the night! I. Will. Sleep.

I slept curled up like a Slinky again last night. It is hard to decide which battle to fight; do I attempt to move the six month old into her crib first or should I be concentrating my efforts on moving the two-year-old to his bed? Is it more important that I be able to stretch my legs past 60... Sign in to see full entry.

Nap time!

If around noon every day someone turned the lights down, gave me a blanket and told me I absolutely had to lie down for at least an hour, I’d grab the blanket and run like hell. If they ever found me, they could attempt to wake me. But to a two year old the word “nap” is a dirty word. Taylor has... Sign in to see full entry.

Democracy and four people in a voting booth

I voted! More impressive, I did so toting three children with me. I put the youngest in a stroller, the oldest in charge of pushing, and the middle one in a choker hold. Okay, I just carried him. I did not realize that in order to work at the polls you must be 110 or older. When my turn came to... Sign in to see full entry.

Perspective is everything

My husband had to work yesterday and my oldest had a soccer game so it was time to swing into “single mom mode”. I woke up at 5:00 to make the Rice Krispie Treats that my daughter wanted to decorate for her team (did I mention I was snack mom for this game too?). I found all the pieces of her...

Want to know what sound S makes?

We have a remote control that is so well worn that the only number visible is “9” and there is no power button. To turn on or off the television, one must either rise to the occasion or coerce one of the children to do so. The back was lost years ago and no one even remembers what it used to look...

Out of the frying pan…

and into the kindergarten class. I have volunteered for a field trip today at my daughter’s school. My job is to corral twenty 5- and 6- year olds while we walk – yes, walk – to the Fire station about a half mile from the school. I am nearly ill with worry and we’re all still in pjs. There should be... Sign in to see full entry.

The dangers of midnight feedings

I believe in gender equality and to that end my husband and I agreed when we were first married that we would share baby and household duties. He worked all day working on cars, and I worked all day at a hospital. So, trash duty, laundry folding and dishes were all evenly distributed once we got... Sign in to see full entry.
