Kids

Today I want to talk about something that plagues me on a daily occurrence. Dog Poop. Those of you who know me may know that I have not one, but two, Bernese Mountain Dogs. Gryffin is 130 pounds of pure happiness and love. Nicky is 90 pounds of medicated hyperactivity....
We left the boys home. They weren’t interested. Or at least not obsessed enough. So this trip was just Katie and me. Two girls on an adventure to Minnesota, to follow the road to all things Laura Ingalls Wilder and Little House on the Prairie. We started by flying from...
I was planning to write a blog about Man Flu - She’s Sick; He’s Sick(er), but something happened and I need to write it out. Katie has cooties. You may remember the blog I wrote about lice. She doesn’t have those cooties. But she has cooties of the foot variety,...
The kids are going back to school. Without me. Just kidding – I’m sure I’ll need to be there for a PTO meeting, training about how to behave in the library, volunteering in the library, concerts, art shows, art class volunteer duty - here’s your glue, book fair, holiday fair,...

I can always count on Disney for mommy issues, but now apparently I can count on Dreamworks for Daddy issues. I went to see How To Train Your Dragon 2 this weekend and afterward was so mad at Dreamworks that I decided I need to hate on them for...
A new article states that only 25% of teens in the US worked in 2013.  Teens are missing out on earning their own money and building character traits from having jobs that make you question your own desire to live. More on horrible jobs in my life: Chuck E. Cheese...
(originally posted 2014.... in case you missed it)... It’s really just a guessing game and a matter of time until every parent loses their sanity.  I was privileged to watch it happen live in front of my own eyes to a mom this week, and then I started wondering...
