I sent the boys and a friend to the movies today (keepin’ em busy) and I told them if they followed my directions (basically: be good) I’d take them for ice cream afterwards. When I picked them up I learned that in addition to the snack bags they smuggled into the theater, Conner and Erik […]
Because I’m too busy yelling at you.
I had Devin look at the hot dog picture below. He laughed. Then I noticed that he was scrolling down and reading the other posts. A little later I asked him: “So, Devin, did you read my blog?” “Yeah. It was funny……………. Mom?” “Yeah Dev?” “How come you’re not funny like that at home?”
In case of emergency… head towards the bar.
Today is my dad’s 74th birthday. He’s very easy to shop for. All he wants for his birthday is Tanqueray gin. Father’s Day? Tanqueray. Merry Christmas! Here’s your bottle of Tanqueray! Dad is a Martini Man. And when I say martini, I don’t mean the yummy Pomegranate or Lemon Drop vodka martinis that I like […]
My Target has a pharmacy but needs a bigger booze section.
The boys had a video game mission. Knowing what could happen, I still took all four boys shopping. Cocktail hour will be arriving earlier than usual today. Devin: Gave up on his dream of saving for his own personal XBox 360 and wanted to spend $40 of his allowance (NOW!!!) on a game for his […]
I never thought “Leave your penis alone!” would make my Top Ten most used phrases….
Last night I tucked my sweet Grant in at bedtime. We read The Very Quiet Cricket, we chose which toy he would sleep with, we said prayers and I kissed him goodnight. I checked on him a little later, only to discover that Al Bundy was sleeping there instead.
To briefly return to that “vintage” topic…
Last week Rich and I were watching the Today show. Mitch was at the breakfast table. One of the news headlines was that Cyd Charisse had just passed away. Mitch: Who’s Cyd Charisse? Me: She was an old time actress who did a bit of everything – acting, singing, dancing… but a long time ago. […]
When did I become vintage?
No, really? When did that happen? I thumbed through Devin’s freshman yearbook today which, by the way, is twice as thick as any of mine were and all in color. (Mine had Sr. Pix in color, a few pages in the beginning and the rest was black & white, baby!) I digress. While looking at […]
Coffee Talk with Grant
Our kitchen. I’m fixing Grant his breakfast. He’s drumming his fingers on the table, waiting patiently. He attempts to make small talk while waiting for his toast: “So, Mom… remember Fat Bastard?” Someone is so in trouble for letting a 4 year old watch “The Spy Who Shagged Me”
Pride goes before a fall.
Grant has been working on his letters. Refrigerator magnets galore and lots of practice with crayons and printer paper… Mom, I need a napkin. OK, but why? There’s something on the wall… What’s on the wall? Nuffin’…. I hand him the napkin and wait a moment or two. Scrubbing, rubbing sounds are heard from the […]
Is it really this easy to read me?
I just looked out the kitchen window to discover Grant in the backyard, peeing on the lawn. eeeewwwww! In a split second, several things flash through my mind: Lately he’s been pretending that he’s Corsa (the dog), and he’s just getting into character. One of his big brothers is going to be in big touble! […]
