My little alien

Of course it had to be raining on Alien Day. It never fails, whenever young children are made to dress like stranger, greener, more complex versions of themselves there is a weather disturbance. Today I happily painted an extra eyeball on my daughter’s forehead and put her hair in antennae-like... Sign in to see full entry.

Back to Europe? Again?

Being that we were going to spend approximately half our time in Europe on a bus, I came prepared. Being that I always manage to screw something up, I came ill-prepared. It was the 90s, and portable CD players were all the rage; they were also very expensive. I forked over $215 of my hard earned... Sign in to see full entry.

Exhibit A in my stupidity trial

I was living alone with my then one-year-daughter after my divorce and I had only an air mattress to sleep on (Alex had a bed, but it was a toddler bed and therefore too tiny to share). My friend said she knew of a place where they sold mattresses near her house, and they were inexpensive;... Sign in to see full entry.

Babysitters are always more fun than parents...

When we were kids living on a military base, my parents were not allowed to leave us unsupervised even though we were pretty responsible kids. So every now and again, my parents would employ the services of an (18-year-old) family friend to watch us while they went out to dinner or some similar... Sign in to see full entry.

“What the hell is this Aunt Jemima thing!?”

Christmas tree decorating is always a time for reflection and memories; old ornaments are dragged out of their boxes and new ornaments are added to the mix. My husband and I don’t have that many ornaments, mostly things our parents have given to us or we bought for each other the past few years. My... Sign in to see full entry.

Back to Europe ...

The sizable teacher who accompanied us to Europe (and drank more Heineken than anyone I had met until or met since) was a traveler. Before departing, we were told how to pack. Specifically, our packing was to include planning. We were to plan for every possible weather event, chance occurrence, or... Sign in to see full entry.

The Pope and Paper Pants

I went to a Catholic all girl’s school (Me on the first day: “Holy shit, they still have these?”) so we knew we’d be seeing the Vatican when we went to Europe. I was surprised at all the rules and regulations to even get into The Vatican, but was thrilled that we’d get to see the Sistine chapel and... Sign in to see full entry.

Pictures from the egde of Sanity

I thought I'd share my youngest two (Alex was at school) in a rarely seen moment of bliss. Right after this was taken they both collapsed in a fit of tears over that toy in Peyton's mouth. Ah, momhood.:) Here is my oldest working on looking like her mother- hot chocolate in hand and smiling:)... if... Sign in to see full entry.

Damn those Disney rodents

Right after my husband and I met, he lost his job (sort of my fault) and failed a couple of things in school (yeah, totally my fault) all in the same week. I felt bad for him, and a bit guilty, so I offered to take him to Disneyland in an attempt to woo him and make him forget that I had made him... Sign in to see full entry.

Moms don't get older, they get bigger

My brother taught me to spell, tell time, and play tennis. Of those three things, tennis is the only one he actually knew how to do at the time he taught me. I had to unlearn his time telling methods, and I eventually learned how to spell “people” without saying “peeohpuhlee”. But tennis was... Sign in to see full entry.
