Why I Blacklisted All-in-One Craft Boxes
I should preface this by saying that I am not crafty. At all. I’ve always wanted to be, but I think my impatience usually wins. And oh, my lack of creativity. When I have to walk through a craft store to purchase items, I am always delighted at all of the options, only to remember ...

The Day My Kids Discovered the Truth…About Chicken
When I was a kid I don’t know if my parents specifically told me about the relationship between animals and the meat that we eat. Honestly though, I don’t know if I ever asked. Looking back, there was no real reason to ask since most of the names of the meat that we ate had ...

The Awkwardness of Massages
It was such a stressful end to the year that my husband decided to give me a massage gift certificate for Christmas. (This was seconds after giving me pink camouflage footed PJs which he said was a joke, but I’m still not so sure. Regardless, the massage gift card made up for that hilarity, joke ...

I remember it as if it were yesterday. It was a beautiful day and the kids and I were headed to a park by the lake. We were on a really curvy road when the birds and bees question first reared its ugly head. “Mommy, how are babies made?” The question came from my 7 ...

10 Things Faster Than My Kids Getting Out of the Car
It’s the first week of Fall but you wouldn’t know it by the temperature here in Texas. It still feels face-melting Inferno hot. So hot that if my sweet (but slow) children take any longer getting out of the car, I may end up in a melted puddle on the ground. There is something mysterious ...

Sticking Your Fingers in the Church Wine Is a Bad Idea
I grew up in a mildly religious Catholic family that went to mass almost every Sunday. Although we went consistently, it never failed that we were always late. Sometimes we got there just in time for communion and the church wine. Every Sunday morning was fairly predictable. My mom, sisters, brother and I rushed around ...

How To Be the Most Embarrassing School Mom in 8 Easy Steps
As school is quickly approaching (and has already arrived for some), I’ve thought of some ways that I can embarrass my 2 elementary-aged kids. I have vivid memories of my father standing outside of his 1985 Buick LeSabre waving at me in the circle drive at the middle school like he was trying to direct ...
