This is officially my lamest post ever but I don’t care. That’s the beauty of a personal blog, you can write about whatever you want, no matter how stupid or insignificant it is. Sure, after my husband reads this, he’ll be carting me off to the loony bin but at least I…..ok….I got nothin’. This… Continue reading An Ode to Baby Groot
When I was growing up, I decided very early I wanted to be a fashion buyer. I lived just outside of Columbus, home of world-famous brands such as Express, Abercrombie and Fitch and Victoria’s Secret. I had the best of both worlds, I could live in the Midwest and have a ton of career options.… Continue reading The Fashion Gene is Real
Yesterday, I whined about how parenting school-aged kids now is far different from yesteryear. You can read about it here. But I have more to compare, I just don’t like super long posts. So I give you part 2 of how much involvement is involved now versus when I went to school in 1843. School… Continue reading School Involvement Today Versus Yesterday- Part 2
Despite technology allowing us to stay more connected to our children’s school, I am lagging behind. For those of you with grown children or for those who don’t have children and grew up at least a decade ago, you are in for a special treat of what it’s like now. For those of you that… Continue reading School Involvement Today Versus Yesterday- Part 1
So when my work emails us and says there are free suite tickets for the OSU basketball game, I jump at it. Not because I love sports, I think many of you know my feelings about sports. It’s for my sons. It just so happens that no other co-workers could make the game today so… Continue reading Hot Mess Doesn’t Do Basketball

He rolled over on his side and said, “Mommy, Caiden had a very interesting question yesterday and I wanted to know the same thing.” “Ok,” I asked completely intrigued, knowing it was going to be something adorable. “What are tampocks?” “Tamp…..what?”… Continue reading What Are Tampocks?
“Mom, my zit hurts so bad!” My 12-year-old exclaimed. He comes closer to me, into the light. “Dear God! How do you not pop that thing? Jesus!” I yelp, upon seeing a large pussy zit on my son’s head. We were all in the kitchen putting away groceries while this was going on. His zit… Continue reading The Zit
My early morning conversations with my 12-year-old seem to becoming more and more ridiculous as the school year marches on. I wouldn’t trade them for the world. We have approximately 20 minutes between the time I wake up and the time I drive him to the bus stop. In a hung-over haze, I quickly attempt… Continue reading He’s Not Old, Damn It!
Admittedly, I have done a disservice to my oldest-P, by doing waayyyy more for him than I should have. My philosophy was that part of the way I show I love him is by making sure to cater to his every whim. Now he’s 12 and here is the conversation we just had yesterday morning….… Continue reading The Difference Between the 1st And 2nd Child
Do you guys know the show Hoarders? Where a gray-haired woman is defending why she has 3 frozen parakeets in her freezer. Or a balding man insists on keeping every JC Penny catalog since 1987? I’m afraid I’m raising a hoarder. Why? My 8-year-old son’s room is a nightmare. And it’s not some large room,… Continue reading Hot Mess Vs. The Hoarder
