The days that forge the men they'll become

I love my family. I thought that today. Not, I thought I loved my family and then thought twice. This time that I’ve been at home has reminded me what I love more than anything; coffee, England, Scotland and Wales, biscotti, fall, even writing. My family. ...more

Typical Day of A Stay At Home Mom

It’s 6 am and the alarm goes off. No, not the alarm on the nightstand. I am talking the alarm on my bed- my little baby. And he starts his duty.He rolls over, plays with my hair and showers me with kisses and saliva. Though I try to snooze for 5 more minutes hiding under the covers, my little brat is unstoppable and wouldn’t budge without getting me out of the bed.I mentally count the number of hours I slept and curse my husband who is still in deep slumber and forces myself to get up and move to the kitchen....more

My very first blog! Wtf even is a blog?

Okay, I've always wanted to start a blog, for the last few weeks. I'm really not sure what a blog entails, but I know I'm way to wordy in my FB posts.

10 Hilarious Tasks For My Imaginary Personal Assistants.

Tonight I was going to write a post about It's a Small World being the most under appreciated and over-complained about attraction at Disneyland, and I was going to add plenty of photos. An hour later, I'm exasperated, as my photo albums are a frightful mess! I only found a few that I wanted to use, and I know there are more, and I absolutely refuse... refuuuuse... to make that post without those ones that strayed off. So maybe tomorrow?...more

Tales from the Dork Side: Terrible Brothers and Severed Heads. And Dummies.

My biggest fear as a child is the very same thing as my biggest fear as an adult. It’s not public speaking, or peeing my pants in public (at home is okay, I guess), or being chased with spiders. It isn’t even choking on coffee at a restaurant and having it spray out of my nose onto my breakfast companion’s huevos rancheros.It’s fucking ventriloquist dummies....more
