Walking in Circles…

April 26, 2010 by Kat  

Walking in Circles…

Walking in circles. Walking in circles. Walking in circles. I don’t know where I’m going; and I certainly don’t know how I got here. What I wanted to write to my Mommy days before she passed, but was too chicken: I was fearful of her reaction. Shoulddah, Woulddah, Coulddah. Remorse.  Self-reproach. Why was I too [...]

“Not Me!” Mondays; Bojangles Hangover and Pretending Kids Aren’t Mine

I did not pretend my children were not mine in the aisles of Target yesterday. Not Me! I did not snicker when hubby watched the total AT the cash register topple out at $418.34 at Target. And, he saw that I didn’t sneak ANY clothes, make-up, toys for the kids, or electronics in there. ALL [...]

“Dinner and a Movie”

Kat and the boys were out of town for a work/family doubleheader in Baltimore last weekend.  That left me and our daughter…alone…together…to do as we pleased.  I was on a business trip on the West Coast for the entire week prior, so it was the perfect opportunity for some daddy/daughter bonding. When was the last [...]

Kids Say (write!) the Darndest Things

In some ways I feel like a stellar parent: Daughter writes poetry; she’s only 1st grade Daughter writes poetry on whatever surface she can find In some ways I feel like a ridiculously immature parent; one whose daughter knows where her mom’s favorite wine store is….  (ironically, I’ve written about this wine store not once, [...]

I’m Entitled — to My Own Opinion…. (but that’s about it!)

Note ~ I’m the guest writer for: on Wednesday with this post; excited! Entitled. I word echoed over and over from Tiger-not-so-outta-da-Woods on news programs all over the world, all weekend. Tiger admitted his faults, including his excuse for feeling entitled to be able to commit all of those moral no-nos, based on how hard he [...]

Cleaning for the Cleaning Lady – not what you’d expect

Okay, I can’t stop giggling to myself. Daughter recently received the below doll as a major reward for a major accomplishment (she also gave me $78 in pennies and nickels toward it; not joking). Herein lays the Parenting lesson: I insist my children pay for a portion of their rewards. I can’t tell you how [...]

He Said: “The Old Ball & Chain”

10 years ago today was both our first Date AND the first time I met Kat in person.  And they say that blind dates never work!  Here we are, 4 kids and 15 lbs later (my 20 gained and the 5 that she’s lost), wondering what in the world happened, and how did it happen so quickly?!?!  [...]

Choices, choices… choices

February 9, 2010 by Kat  

Choices, choices… choices

Choice A: Schlep 4 rugrats into Target to buy new underwear; Choice B: Let sons wear same underwear tomorrow — this would equate to 3rd consecutive day; Choice C: Do a load of whites I’m still on the fence. With HIM outta town, and SHE being a lover of cliches — while the dog’s away, [...]
