Oh Balls!!

I don’t know if you’ll be shocked but we had a soccer tournament this week, 40 minutes away. Though I wanted Carter (my 9-year-old) to win, a part of me didn’t want him to advance to the semi-finals which was at 7:30 a.m……on a Sunday….and we had to be there by 6:45 a.m. I didn’t… Continue reading Oh Balls!!

Last night was beggar’s night for us. My youngest went as a shock trooper…..with a buckeye hat on. My oldest went as some creepy thing with a white mask. After kids in the neighborhood began to mistake him as a mime, I think he somewhat regretted his decision. We covered 260 houses at break neck… Continue reading Candy Nazi

Failing at House Cleaning and Halloween

As I look around my house, I’m reminded of episodes of Hoarders. A tumbleweed drifts by, aka Chichi’s fur. Additional reasons my house looks like a hoarders’ paradise? A smelly shin guard and water bottle sit on the kitchen table we eat food off of. A pot my mother-in-law cooked us a meal in 2… Continue reading Failing at House Cleaning and Halloween

A How To Guide On Playing Football

As I completely miss the soccer ball my 8-year-old kicks to me, I’m reminded of how little to no experience I have with any sport what so ever.

Every 30 minutes when he wasn’t looking, I got into his treat bag and grabbed anything that resembled a chocolate bar. 1 kit kat, almond chocolate joy,… Continue reading Hot Mess Does Beggars Night-Part Une
