Mommy's Little Eye Candy: Cash Cab in the City

Welcome to Mommy's Little Eye Candy - a series of photos and blog posts tailor-made specifically for frazzled-out and frustrated moms, you know, like me! You know, a Monday morning pick me up (or, mommyporn, if you will) only a whole lot cleaner and totally calorie-free! In fact, I'm hoping that Mommy's Little Eye Candy will help make you (yes, YOU!) LOVE Mondays, again...yeah, that's right...or, help you forget the worry and stress you feel about the rest of the week. For a little while, at least, and in the spirit of good clean fun, right? [big toothy grin] So,... Read more →

Times When Butt Jokes ARE More Than Appropriate

It's no secret, raising teens is NOT easy. Blogging about them, regardless of the fact that it may be under extremely difficult situations and then focusing all of your energies in the most positive way, is even harder. All of the sudden, in a blink of an eye, our lives have become less about poopie diapers and laundry and whether the Doodle Bops are evil (although, I do happen to agree with Lindsay on that one) or, if fart noises and butt jokes are appropriate at the dinner table. Because, I'm here to tell you that, YES, not only has... Read more →

Hump Day Diddy Dumbs: Wish You Were Here!

Greetings from Minneapolis! Sometimes, you just gotta say, "Hey, you know what, I bet it would be fun to jump into the hot tub with our clothes on, right?" Sure, it's all fun and games, until someone's iPhone gets hurt. [moment of silence] Death by hot tub. R.I.P. Dawn's iPhone! © 2009 This Full House - All Rights Reserved. Read more →

19 Years of Marriage and She's STILL Got Nothin'

"While any couple that reaches their 16th, 17th, 18th, or 19th wedding anniversary certainly has an occasion worth celebrating, there are no traditional gifts associated with those anniversary years...About.com" I used to think my MIL was nuts (sorry mom, but wait, it gets better) especially, around holiday time, or whenever a member of the Thompson Clan reaches some sort of milestone, that typically requires some form of congratulatory gift-giving. "Would you mind buying your father a card, for me." What? "I didn't have time to run out and buy a gift." Seriously? After 50-something years (I forget) not even a... Read more →

PBN Blog Blast: Love Means Never Having to Pay Full Price

The Parent Bloggers Network has teamed up with the folks at Capital One to get the word out about how parents (like me) are talking to kids about budgeting and finances. Or, not. Capital One and national consumer advocacy group Consumer Action sponsor the Moneywi$e eLearning tool, which includes a section all about talking to kids about money. [cringe] Or, not -- because, my parents never "talked" to me about financial responsibility and I turned out okay, sort of. Then again, all four of my kids are well aware that their grandparents were immigrants and aren't afraid to tell their... Read more →

Nearly Wordless Wednesday: More Than a Feeling

I canNOT believe that summer is almost over. Can you? I mean, I haven't even unloaded their backpacks from June, yet. Still, the kids and I can't help but feel a little sorry to say goodbye to the Summer of 2009. So, I put together this little movie -- you know, for those who will, no doubt, by December, insist they were absolutely B.O.R.E.D the entire summer -- so, hopefully, it will help them ALL remember the really good times, too. This Full House Summer 2009 from Liz Thompson on Vimeo. [bites lower lip] Okay, me too. Check out the... Read more →

She's Got the POW-WAH!

She may be small and she may only be 8 (although,the girl's got a mouth like a 13 year old, or what-evuh, Mom) but, I was once told by a psychic that my youngest daughter has "a very old soul." What? She body-slammed me in the mall for a "quick reading" (the psychic, I mean, not Hopey) and well, it was for free, you know? "You'll find what you're looking for when you don't need it, anymore." Story of my life, really and it didn't take a psychic to convince me that my friend Melisa (with one S) was right,... Read more →
