So, I Peed on my Kid.
The fam and I took a trip to Burgatory today. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it, mostly for the milkshakes. Mmmmmm… Anyhoo, the kids behaved fairly well, ate their meals without trying to feed strangers at the table next to us, and didn’t even spill anything! It was, without a doubt, one of … Continue reading
Happy 1-Year Blogiversary to Meeeeee!!!
Happy Friday, party people! I woke up in an exceptionally good mood today because, well, it’s Friday AND because I’m reintroducing coffee back into my diet after almost a week hiatus. The flu may have had me down, but I’m up again, people, and I plan to reclaim my status as a fully functioning caffeine … Continue reading
Remember how sick I was yesterday? Well, today I put on my “day clothes,” as my kids call them, and headed out to the boy’s preschool parent/teacher conference. [Insert merited applause here]. I prayed that I wouldn’t crap in my pants and would like to thank Baby Jesus for hearing me. #Success. Until… Teacher: I’m … Continue reading

One Teacher’s Wish List
After almost 10 years in the business of education, I’ve witnessed a lot: a student using my classroom phone to schedule her abortion; a parent’s tirade during a conference that ended in her slapping her 16-year-old son upside the head and him crying; a lovely young man crashing through my classroom window as a result … Continue reading
Project Optimism: A Different Kind of Hero
We all have that somebody in our lives who can make us laugh until we tinkle a little. In my life, that somebody is my brother. He has the gift of humor, and his impersonations are spot-on. When he was in junior high, his teachers always told my parents that he was so quiet and … Continue reading
When the Husband is Away, the Wife Will Play.
My husband and his friends host a clinic for baseball and softball coaches every January, and when he left me a single mom yesterday, I decided to take today off and enjoy a long weekend with the kids. The expectation for a fun Friday wasn’t very high; in fact, knowing that our first order of … Continue reading
