Summer Vacation - friends, family and fresh tomatoes…but, not today - Day 36

A little more than a month from now, the kids will be going back to school and - with Mini-me starting kindergarten (don't even get me started!) - we'll need to be thinking about getting them back to a more "normal" bedtime (read: in bed before eleven p.m.) and consider some sort of schedule that includes time blocked off for...you know...sitting and eating...hopefully, both...at the same time. But, not today. This morning - or, at least...I think it's morning - I've just finished cleaning up breakfast (yes, I know it's 11:00 a.m...I think) and I'm drinking copious amounts of coffee...

Summer Vacation - Past, present and future tenses & private parts - Day 32

I'm reading Silly Hat, yesterday, and there's an interesting discussion on children and their "private parts," where she raises the question, "What do you call it?" I was inspired to re-publish a rather tense "old" This Full House post -- because I'm currently fighting the crowds and exercising my babe magnetics at the beach...and can't link to it...never having bothered to move my files from Typepad...because I am a Doofus! -- for your Hump Day reading pleasure:   This Is My House and We Don't Say The Word Penis! -------------------------------------------------------------------------- "You’re a mental case…and I can’t believe I trust...

Summer Vacation - Get outta town; I’m just here for the food! - Day 26

As most of you (who really know me) know, I don't get out all that often. Oh, I used to - and was even in charge of writing...you know...words that made sense (and under no circumstances would have done so with so many...you know...dots) - in fact, I commuted to downtown NYC (Wall Street) pregnant, even. Now? Trips to the grocery store wig me out! Imagine my surprise (read: WTF WERE THEY THINKING?) when receiving an invitation to sit at a roundtable discussion with...(GULP!)...other bloggers...the likes of...(HOLY CRAP!)...Mom-101 and...(SHIVER!)...DaddyTypes and...(GOOSEBUMPS!)...PHAT Mommy and...(UGH, CAN A MOM BE ANY CUTER?)...Modern Mom and...(UH,...

Summer Vacation - Who’s HOT? Mommybloggers, and the men who love ‘em! - Day 26

My husband started his vacation this week and - although he had to "pop" into work for a few hours yesterday afternoon - it's not like we're not going anywhere or doing anything special...stil...it's nice to have him...you know...around. When we first met - a blind date he agreed to only to get his SIL off his back - we felt a connection that went beyond sexual attraction (believe me, I've had plenty of relationships at that point to understand the difference) and I dropped alot more than my glass of red wine and two sets of utensils. I spilled... Read more →

Summer Vacation - All glossed up and nowhere to go - Day 22

Dressing my kids when they were babies was fun and - although it was easier to find things for the girls as opposed to the choices offered in the boys' department - I am thankful that my girls are comfortable in their own skins and each have their own unique style. Thing One has been into the bohemian-folksy look (before it was even in style) while Thing Two is into the t-shirt and jeans sort of casual. And Mini-me is very girly and loves to shop for clothes...as long as it is purple and/or pink. The boy? Well, he's okay... Read more →

Summer Vacation - For The Love of Humpty Dumpty and All Things Rachel Ray - Day 20

"Do you mind...um, since I'm taking it for lunch...if we don't have this for dinner?" [blank stare] Oh, I know it sounds terribly "Ozzie and Harriet" on the surface, I thought my husband was trying to be very diplomatic about having to eat leftovers, again. Hence - rather than taking my coffee mug (because cups are for wussies) and bashing him upside his head, while pulling on his necktie until his face turned blue - the blank stare into domestic oblivion. Not for nothing, but - I'm no Rachel Ray - no matter how many different ways you dress it... Read more →
