Spittin' on Sunshine (Wooah!)

Happy 15th Birthday, Heather! By now, you've been marked on the measuring wall, had your birthday hunt and opened your gift (you're welcome!) and I really do hope that you're not too disappointed. Don't worry. I understand. Even if you swore a thousand and one times on your beloved great-grandmother's grave (who loved you very much, too and is probably watching, right now, so I better be REAL careful about what I say next) birthdays SHOULD be coveted and a time when selflessness is, more often than not, overlooked. Unless, you live in our house...your birthday falls SMACK in the... Read more →

You Know You're a Parent When:
All You Want for Christmas
Is a Puke-free New Year

Beeeeecause, all the baking, cleaning, cooking, planning and preparing in the world will NOT stop the creeping crud from putting a damper on your holiday. Unless, you live at our house... "Sweetie, you awake?" ...you're turning 15, this week... "Any special requests?" ...but, have lost ALL concept of time... "Can I please have some water, now, pretty please?" ...because, the kid's been puking since Christmas Day. "Um, not yet, Sweetie, maybe tomorrow." At our house, birthdays and holidays sometimes arrive late and can last an entire week, even. "What day is it, again, today?" [one beat, two beats] "Uh, well,... Read more →

Random Acts of Zhu for the Holidays: New Jersey & Zhu, Happy Together!

It's been a crazy, busy year -- even Santa doubts my being able to finish EVERYTHING on MY to do list in time for eggnog o'clock -- then, my youngest daughter (she's 9) asked if she could practice her writing skills and wrote a wonderful post about Christmas. It made me realize just how GROWN UP she's getting and, sadly, Kris Kringle won't be needing my services, for much longer, after all. [pout] Good thing Hope and I got the chance to play Santa, this week! I am very proud to be one of bloggers chosen to participate in Cepia... Read more →

Guest Post: About Christmas
by Hope Thompson

Mommy is busy cooking and cleaning our bedroom so I asked if I could write on her blog and she said YES. Okay, about Christmas. All the television commercials and sale coupons and Sunday flyers and everything else that piles up on our kitchen table. Christmas isn't about the presents. Its about coming together with family and friends and having fun. I think the best Christmas I ever had was making ginger bread houses with my grandparents, aunt and uncle, and of course my parents. Then we had some ginger bread men with homemade icing. Also, between you and me... Read more →

#Reverb10: Lesson Learned

Reverb 10 is an online initiative created by Gwen Bell to reflect on 2010, consider, you know, what's next and, through daily writing prompts, help folks (like me) share their story. Since I am ALL about sharing (shuddup Garth, not your real name!) my friend Shannon is doing it and now Diana's joining in (although, the non-conformist in me can't promise to, you know, write daily) I've decided to give it a whirl. Todays' Prompt: Lesson Learned -- What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward? My... Read more →
