Watching Movies (parent style)

Myself and my husband are big film fans. Our pre-parent selves watched a lot of movies and made numerous treks to the cinema. We stacked our shelves with all the new releases as well as hunting down eighties and nineties classics. Trust me when I say we have a lot of DVDs. Fast forward to now and our child is two. Since her arrival I have noticed a steady decline in our movie watching. I was prepared for this when she was a newborn. We broke up the night into two shifts so that each of us got at least five hours sleep....more

The lord of the puns: the return of the loser

 You auto know that I am not a punster. But it is a pieceful work. Woke up to Lady Gaga’s poker face.And planned to write on pun today.But I am a day dreamer. I started thinking of being a red queen, living a stable life of my ween.Not just me, but my friends are dumb too. Let me tell you an instance.During the day, while watching hairy potter, my friend asked, Coke?. I said, Pepsi. My friend, “Maybe PepsiCo will be our new Okay”. I hit him with my can for the lameness, only to hear, “Thank god, it was a soft drink.” ...more

Can a 3 Year Old Be an A**hole?

I hope I offend at least a few people with my well-thought-out title. ...more

when the bleep hits the fan. and your head.

Yesterday morning when I was walking Lupe, a bird pooped on my head. And you know, it's not even that the bird pooped on my head that irks me. It's the fact that it had just finished raining, so I assumed the said drop on my head was a rain drop. I then proceeded to continue to walk Lupe, say hello to all the lovely neighbors of mine also walking their dogs, and get to the elevator before I went up to tuck my hair behind my ear, and I realized that what came off of my hair and onto my hand was not a raindrop. Oh no, it was a bird

Is The Honeymoon Over?

    In just a few days, Tom and I will have been married for 22 years. He is truly the greatest blessing in my life, and I thank God for him daily. Of course we occasionally argue. We get annoyed at each other and may not speak for a few hours. We’re married. We’re human....more

The Power Of Martha

As you all probably know, Martha fascinates me. BTW, have you noticed she’s just known as Martha now – like Cher or Madonna.Anyway, I was watching one of her old shows on some crazy channel last week. Just when I thought I’d seen it all, I saw her fold a fitted sheet. Have you ever seen her do that? It’s witchcraft, I tell you. It cannot be done by a mere mortal....more
I remember that Thanksgiving special!  It was AMAZING!  I want to be Martha when I grow up ...more

The Force of Harry Potter

I've never been a fan of Harry Potter. *GASP* I know. To be honest, I never gave it a chance. I just wasn't that into that sort of stuff when it first came out. But now I have a daughter who is very into that kind of stuff. The force of Harry Potter is strong in her like I bought the first book a month ago...if that...and she's already on book 4....more

It's Psychological

Always late. That’s me.I was born two weeks late and have been late for everything since. My mother made the age-old statement numerous times, “There’s no doubt about it – you’ll be late for your own funeral!” My tardiness drove her crazy. She was the opposite. Very scheduled. Never late. My eldest daughter is just like her....more

First Comes Love, Then Comes Armageddon

The first real test of our marriage vows arrived ten months after we said them.It was true love. "Isn't she beautiful?" My husband whispered, over and over again, a tear rolling down his cheek. But I just couldn't see it. Truth is, I wanted to set her on fire....more
