I have no idea why we decided to do this, obviously Carter and I were bored, yesterday morning. I turned the Alexa to French and attempted communication with the 3 words of French I know. Obviously this proved futile as she didn’t understand me, the first go around. Here is the short 3 minute video… Continue reading Hey Alexa!
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!!
For anyone that hasn’t seen To Catch a Predator, it was a show on Dateline NBC and ran from 2004-2007. Chris Hanson (the journalist) and team would lure male predators in by impersonating a young girl or boy (usually around 13-years-old) over the internet. After online communication, the decoy (a very young-looking adult), would agree… Continue reading To Catch a Predator- A Look Back
So I’ve been a fan of Orange is the New Black on Netflix, since day 1. It’s well written, the characters are believable and it’s funny and thoughtful as well. Why I had never listened to the book (I don’t have time to read so I use audible for my ridiculously long commute) was beyond… Continue reading 15 Perks of Going to Prison
Dinner time in my house is something of a cluster and I’m partially to blame. One of the most uncomfortable feelings for me is going to bed hungry. In fact, I’ve never gone to bed hungry because I physically can’t go to sleep hungry. That being said, for me to implement the rule of “this… Continue reading Dining With Divas- A Short Memoir of Eating with my Children
I really didn’t know what to call this post. Obviously you see the title that won- The Special Stank of a Boy. I also toyed with titles such as X Ways to be a Decent Human Being in a Hotel Room as well as, Nothing Is Working and I Want to Suck My Thumb, Again.… Continue reading The Special Stank of a Boy
At 41, my sons deem me old. I don’t feel old and I feel like I’m doing a whole hell of a lot better trying to take care of my skin with my 1,001 SPF and facial creams. I was going to start out saying that old people are weird given my last 2 encounters… Continue reading 2 Odd Fellas’
When my children were babies and/or toddlers, many experienced mothers said, enjoy this time, you’ll miss it. I wanted to punch them in the throats as they walked away with their teenage boy while I was left chasing down a 4-year-old while simultaneously changing the diaper of an 18 month old. ‘Enjoy this time? Obviously… Continue reading Life With a Teenage Boy
Against my better judgement, we decided to shop for school supplies today. I had planned on going tomorrow however between painting our basement, a possible trip to Ikea, soccer practice and shaving my bikini area, we needed to go today. The reason I anticipated a cluster is that it’s a tax-free weekend here in Ohio. Our… Continue reading Back to School Shopping
You guys, my son just had the side hustle of the year and I still can’t believe the money he made doing it. As a 13-year-old, he just made over $500! I’ll explain. Background For the past year, my son has been nose deep into street wear fashion. I’m not a fashion expert but it’s… Continue reading Side Hustle of the Year
