Road Trip!…Apple Crisp

It seemed like such a good idea at the time. Two days off of school. Two hours to Chattanooga. 48 hours of action packed activities. Kids museums. Aquariums. Rock Cities. Mountains. Choo-Choos. Ice Cream. Hotel. Late night snacks. So why, why did my kids act like were being tortured the entire time? Granted, I did […]

Grow Up

  I just read a really stupid article that touched a nerve. The topic: At what age should kids stop trick-or-treating? The comments were actually more poignant than the article itself. Some parents recommended age twelve, the confirmation year. The year that kids are ‘supposed’ to transition into mini-adults. Others suggested the ritual cease at […]

Floundering on Dinner

Floundering on Dinner

Lately I’ve been floundering on my meals. Just can’t seem to make the right turkey chili in the crock pot. Tossing salads (literally) because I’m not satisfied with the outcome. Botching brownies. Making mediocre meatballs. I need some fresh ideas. And once again it’s 5:53 pm and I’m left with my daily dilemma: what to […]

Best. Marinade. Ever.

It’s Monday. Which means there’s no time to do anything. So I’ll cut right to the chase. Marinate that chicken that’s still sitting in your fridge in this stuff and make kabobs. You’ll be everybody’s best friend. No joke. Kick Ass Kabobs *I approximated this at about 1/2 cup for everything liquid…give or take a […]

Some Follow-Up

As much as I’d like to say the birthday party went off without a hitch, well, there were a few snafus. Let’s just say that having your eight-year-old in charge of the main activity for 15 little girls was about as frustrating as putting together an IKEA Bjorkin desk with sixteen drawers and extra parts.

Birthday Party Jitters

  When your baby turns six you feel old. When your baby turns six and starts asking to wear deodorant you feel a little older. But when your baby tells you she doesn’t like frosting on her cupcakes, you wonder if she’s really yours. This Sunday is my daughter’s birthday party. At her request, we’ll […]

Random Thoughts…

Some questions I’ve already been asked this week: “Mom, how come birds don’t get electrocuted when they sit on power lines?” “Mom, when can I use Teen Spirit so my underarms won’t smell?” “Mom, why does your car sometimes look like a homeless person’s?” “Mom, how come Quincy licks his privates?” “Mom, when can I […]
