Mom Humor: How Sweet It Is

Mom Humor: How Sweet It Is

My husband has never been a conventional gift giver. The very first gift he ever gave me he won in a random drawing and pawned it off as his own gift. That’s right, the first gift was a re-gift. It was a tennis bracelet, so I’m not complaining but it was a re-gift just the same.
Mom Humor: Holiday Cheese

Mom Humor: Holiday Cheese

Ahhh … the annual Christmas card race, um, I mean exchange. It’s a favorite holiday tradition. Beginning in October (or April), I start planning the outfits that my children will wear. I book the photographer. I scour the websites for the best design and I update my card list.

Mom Humor: PB&J is for the Birds

Growing up, my uncle and his wife would host Thanksgiving at their home in Dallas. When we got together with them in Dallas, it was nothing short of proper.
Mom Humor: Cleaning House

Mom Humor: Cleaning House

My girls sandwich the holidays with their birthdays. My older daughter was born in November and my younger daughter was born in January. One might bemoan the fact that we have approximately 10 straight weeks of celebration, but not me! I revel in the fact that we have approximately 10 straight weeks of a clean house.
Mom Humor: Someone Phone Home!

Mom Humor: Someone Phone Home!

Truthfully, I don’t remember the whole ordeal—and that’s part of the problem. I do recall my teenager and I standing toe-to-toe, figuratively, and my drawing the proverbial line that she was not to cross. And then, because she’s a teen, she crossed it. As a result, I took her life.
Summer Is Made for the Last Minute

Summer Is Made for the Last Minute

Back to school time … ahhh! That sweet time when we say goodbye to late mornings and late nights and hello to fruit bars hastily unwrapped and called breakfast as we dash out the door hoping to not get a tardy so early in the academic year.
Mom Humor: I'll Be There for You

Mom Humor: I'll Be There for You

I distinctly remember the first time I left our daughters with a babysitter who was not family. I wrote a 20-page doctrine on exactly how my children liked their frozen macaroni and cheese heated up. I also left every phone number I knew (including yours!), you know, just in case she needed to get a hold of my ex-step-uncle who is a nephrologist down in Texas. One never knows when a 2-year-old will need assistance in passing a kidney stone.

Mom Humor: Who's the Hero? It's Not Momma!

Our older daughter’s golf team had just placed fourth in their conference. I was not able to go to the tournament, but my husband did—she played her best game yet. While I support my girl and her love of the sport, her daddy really is her biggest fan. So it was very important to both of them that they got to share this day together.
Mom Humor: By Any Other Name

Mom Humor: By Any Other Name

When I first found out I was pregnant, I was so excited to get started on, well, everything. I scoured all the baby catalogs and stores and found the perfect nursery set (Old McDonald’s Farm).
Mom Humor: Summer Camp Promises

Mom Humor: Summer Camp Promises

When I was going into the sixth grade, I went to my first week-long overnight camp. I’d gone to several camps for a weekend or an overnight, but this was going to be a whole week away from my home…and more importantly, away from my little sister.
