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.
Mom Humor: Next to Nothing for Spring Break

Mom Humor: Next to Nothing for Spring Break

We will not be traveling anywhere for Spring Break this year. With my husband and I both being teachers, Spring Break has always been a wonderful pot of gold at the end of the dreary winter rainbow. In fact, we eloped over Spring Break almost twenty years ago, taking advantage of the week-long vacation that is typically celebrated by scantily-clad co-eds on beaches all over the world.
Mom Humor: Snow Days

Mom Humor: Snow Days

It wasn’t that long ago that I remembered being snowed in with a couple wild children who went stir crazy in no time flat. We’d watched Frozen until my eyes were frozen to the screen—then I sang to my kids as I shooed them outside.
You Need WHAT?

You Need WHAT?

Every single year, we barely have the Christmas tree put away and my daughters are busy breaking, um … I mean playing with their new toys when I announce, with exhaustion in my voice, that it’s only two more wake-ups until they return to school.
The Perfect Holiday Cookie

The Perfect Holiday Cookie

My daughters and I were invited to a holiday cookie exchange. I had read endless blogs and articles about holiday cookie exchanges, and they seemed, well, complicated.
Mom Humor: Cleaning & Grinning

Mom Humor: Cleaning & Grinning

My announcement that we were cleaning out the closets and toy shelves was not met with the enthusiasm one might imagine. Okay, fine. I’m not sure which one of us might imagine that cleaning closets and toy shelves could be done enthusiastically, but I was hoping that someone in my house might be enthusiastic about the task.
