When kids are standing in the bathroom, and they realize they’re about to throw up, why do they then immediately run to a room that is carpeted and throw up on the floor? Does it have anything to do with the reason a 14-year-old dog lying on the kitchen floor will suddenly jump up […]
~Addie J’s lisp, and the way she asked me tonight if, tomorrow, we could “Thtay home and chill out.”
~The fact that Cameron thinks we somehow can’t hear him playing games on his Zune after we send him to bed.
~The fact that, some night soon, I’m going to sneak upstairs and catch him in the […]
This is an artist's rendition of what happens at my house during a game of Memory. I may or may not be represented by Beavis.
…I’ve got just a couple of things here for you:
1. Thanks for making me aware of that diner on State Street today. I had no idea there […]
This evening, I told the kids all about fingerstaches. This is the result:
Please note that Addie J's fingerstache was actually on her left hand. Also, that shirt is way too small.
Dad update: once his blood pressure rises above the insane 80/41 it was today, he gets to come home. So if you […]
"Get your ass back to that piano!! An A-minus is not an A!!!"
~According to Cam, I am a terrible mom because I don’t let him stay up until 10pm on a school night.
Also, I make him do his hair instead of going to school with bedhead.
Also, sometimes I call him […]
This looks hilariously similar to Dave when he's mad.
This morning, Dave and I successfully convinced Cameron and Gabby that Dave used to be a pirate. Strangely, it wasn’t even that hard. It came up when Cam asked Dave if his ear was pierced, and Dave replied, “Yeah, back when I was a pirate […]
Cam and his friends have launched a business. They operate during recess every day at school, and as clearly as I can tell, the business serves the entertainment market: they set up targets at which people can throw things, and then give away prizes to the top scorers.
Up to this point, I can see my […]
You do not even know what I went through to find this image. Imagine what you get when you search the Internet for "Power Balls."
I am all too familiar with scenarios wherein my kids say something dreadfully inappropriate in front of me. (Example: the time Cameron, as a toddler, stood up in […]
Cam has basically said these things to me every ten minutes since Christmas.
Today, two days after Christmas, I can see some early front-runners in the game of “Which Gifts Are the Biggest Hit?” Here are my observations so far:
1. Pulse Slither Scooter
This appeared next to Cameron’s pile on Christmas morning, and it’s […]
Before we begin, I would like to state for the record that we were having the same dinner that was vehemently rejected last night: roast turkey. The only difference is that, instead of green beans, we had it with carrot and celery sticks.
GABBY: Mom, can I have a little more?
JULIE: Sure, sweetie.
