Lies Parents Tell Their Children plus Friday Frivolity

Besides the three characters (Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy) I don’t tell J too many little white lies. I am more of a “because I said so kind” of mom. I am also a non-judgemental mom. If you stretch the truth to keep the peace in your home, I have no …

I am not waiting to celebrate Christmas

  I will not be reserving my celebration of Christmas for December 25th this year. I refuse to spend a month stressing over all of the seemingly endless preparations for one single solitary day: put up the decorations outside: test all the lights, replace broken bulbs, remember how the animated figures reassemble (again!), try to …

Is Your Math Anxiety Hampering Your Child?

Your child comes home with Math Homework, that awful Common Core Math Homework no less. He/she needs help. The method being demonstrated is different than you were taught. How do you react? Go on a rant about Common Core and how it is ruining our children? Throw your hands up and say you were horrible …

Don’t be a Photo Hoarder!

One of my biggest pet peeves right now are the picture hoarders in my life. Those people that have their camera at the ready at gatherings of family and friends, clicking away like a fiend and then let those pictures sit on their memory cards to die a slow silent death until they are deleted to …

The man worked through walking pneumonia last year. But, when HIS son gets sick he instantly transforms into …

Quick memo to my son’s teachers

For future reference, this is not how I sign (or spell) my name. Just in case you couldn’t tell the difference. Even funnier, he was really good this week so there wouldn’t have been a need to hide this report from me. And even funnier, when I asked him about it he announced “That’s wrong!” …

A good home for kids pants

I was trying to get through perusing my link ups this morning when the phone rang. “Hi, Mrs. H. This is the school nurse.” (my heart stopped beating). “Can you bring J a change of clothes? He had an accident.” (deep exhale!) She’s been down this road a time or twelve and said those in …

I was tired so I napped…

A friend once said she took a nap because she loved her family so much she did not want to subject them to her grouchiness when she was tired. I nap in “self defense”. When you spawn a child that doesn’t sleep you do what you gotta do to stay functional. Today I had a …
