Movie Momma

Just last week, I escaped in my jammies to catch a late showing of “Bridesmaids,” alone. Well, technically there were other people in the theatre, but I’m talking about not having a friend of a family member with me. I adore movies. See photo below and you can vicariously enjoy my refreshments. I’m a sneaky... Read more »

Victim of Butthurt

My friend sent me an email copy of a note he received from a fellow parent regarding an “incident” that occurred at the preschool. It was so fubar that I laughed until I almost cried and in my mind I drafted a retort that would not only make the woman clutch her pearls but also... Read more »

Ask a stupid question......

Yesterday morning after 24 hours of a raging high fever, my daughter was cooling off and showing signs of recovery. Aside from the fever she had no other symptoms to give a clueless mom any idea of what kind of virus or bacteria she was battling. Phew! I hate seeing my girl sick. She extra... Read more »

Dogs and Tunes

adopt a dog! this rescue pup likes to shit under the piano.
Last fall when my first “baby”, Mona the dog died I received a lot of hugs and words of support from friends and family. It was sort of like the diarrhea frosting on the shit cake of last year. 2009 was rough. When I am grieving or needing escape I always choose music. All genres... Read more »

Au revoir, Oprah.

Au revoir, Oprah.
As a therapist I used to loathe Oprah. I’d be sitting with the parent of a kid client and they would rattle off some random fact they learned by watching Oprah. Really? I went to graduate school, had worked with many, many children and was receiving great continuing education and top notch clinical supervision and... Read more »

O' Come Emanuel!

O' Come Emanuel!
Even before Monica blew Bill I had already stopped getting sucked into the emotional aspects of politics. It bothers me how little I care about what’s happening because caring is one of the “shoulds” that is actually a GOOD should. The 15th amendment was huge, right? Nobody could be denied the right to vote based... Read more »

FOOD FIGHT!

Yesterday morning it took all of 30 seconds after I opened my eyes for me to realize that I wanted a s’more for breakfast. No, I’m not camping or even suffering from PMS. I just knew that all the fixings were downstairs and I imagined dipping that sticky mess in my morning coffee. The only... Read more »

EPIC Parenting

Heroic, majestic and impressively great are the words used to define EPIC. Some people are so epic I can’t get enough of being around them. Epic people make you want to be better but they aren’t necessarily heroic, majestic or impressively great. Sometimes epic-ness is subtle. Sometimes it is not. Being a parent is daily... Read more »

Stumbled upon

My life has been a series of stumbled upon experiences, a recent one being this blog thing. I like blogging but I could quit tomorrow without looking back. I’ve stumbled upon the realization that I get more out of reading other people’s blogs than I do writing my own. I’m going through a phase of... Read more »
