I Could Count to 10, but..

First Sign I Would Never Be a Math Major When I was a little girl, not yet into kindergarten, I knew my address, could count to 10, write a little bit, draw, and paint - a lot - on an easel even.

Whose Kid Does This?

More of Daughter #1's Antics Our Pat mentioned that back in the day some folks' parents may have suggested spiking a baby's bottle with a drop of bourbon, or, I'll admit, rubbing brandy on Baby's gums, as was the case with my own parents.

Hot Summer Nights

"Mommeee,Mommeee, I Want Out!" On these hot, summer nights, I think back, way back, before we lived in a house that had air conditioning, when I would leave the windows open late in the hope that the house would cool down in the evenings.

Slice and Dice

"Where's My Knife?" The other day I was searching for just the right knife with which to slice my nice, cool apple. Ever since the Alar scare way back when, I've peeled apples. It's just me.
