Ride to Escape the Cesspool of Teenagerdum(b)

This momming thing sucks donkey butt sometimes. My first son is now fourteen. He is also severely ADHD. Right now WE are all battling his ADHD, immaturity, hyperactivity, hormones/puberty and anything else you care to throw in that toilet of teenagerdum(b). (Yes, I've decided Webster's words aren't accurate enough to convey my thoughts so I'm… Continue reading Ride to Escape the Cesspool of Teenagerdum(b)

We Only Look Like Grandparents to Other People

I think my husband is absolutely gorgeous and he likes me too. A lot. We've known each other since ninth grade so it doesn't seem possible that we will turn 53 this year. Yes, we're getting older but to each other I think we still see our younger selves. Others are clearly blind to our… Continue reading We Only Look Like Grandparents to Other People

Time With One of My Sons

Making the “Nice” List?

Oh my goodness I am momming so hard right now. This is my seven-year-old son, Riley.  He is absolutely beautiful.  Although I do foresee waxing in his future. I mean, seriously? Those eyebrows are a-maz-ing! His eye lashes are about a mile long and, as you can see, he has gorgeous hazel eyes, but be… Continue reading Making the “Nice” List?

Captain Climber Gets a Bed

My two year old, Logan, is an expert climber. The saying, "where there's a will, there's a way" is his M.O. especially if food is involved. There isn't a pantry shelf around that will stand between him and a pack of fruit chews. He is also proficient at navigating bar stools, desk chairs, desks and… Continue reading Captain Climber Gets a Bed
