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.
Mom Humor: The Great Pumpkin Scheme

Mom Humor: The Great Pumpkin Scheme

Last October (yes, a year ago), I bought several pumpkins at the local discount store. I do not buy the biggest or most expensive for this reason alone: The Daughters will each design a pumpkin, begin carving, get grossed out and then Brian and I will finish the job just in time for the neighborhood kids to steal it and smash it in the street. Call me an Orange Grinch, but I won’t spend big bucks on pumpkins.
What's This 'Alone Time' I Hear So Much About?

What's This 'Alone Time' I Hear So Much About?

My sweet husband, knowing I’d had a rough week, promised that he’d quietly get our daughters out of the house on Saturday and let me sleep in. Y’all? Sleeping in is my nirvana. He didn’t have to tell me twice of his plans before I popped a melatonin, put on a sleep mask and drifted off to dream.
Making the Most of the Pick Up Lane

Making the Most of the Pick Up Lane

I find the pick up lane to be quite long. And tedious. And hot. And, most of all, boring.
Birthday Party Priorities

Birthday Party Priorities

I love birthdays but maybe, perhaps more than that, I love birthday parties. Before the second blue line was fully across the pregnancy test, I was planning my future party animal’s first birthday party.
The Summer that Boredom Busted Me

The Summer that Boredom Busted Me

Last summer, I made the Boredom Boxes. You know, like the ones that made their rounds on Pinterest. I repinned them and actually made them. That makes about four pinned ideas that I have actually followed through with. Four, y’all! That’s a personal best for me.
