Email: Before you delete this, THIS IS NOT SPAM (unbelievable how many subject lines say this exact thing)

Yesterday I got my first fan mail from an 11-year-old blogger (hi! Davis) in which he said to me, “I hope that you keep those keys clickin’ until the arthritic kicks in (give it time…).” An 11-year-old said to me, “Give it time.” The wisdom of kids these days! Receiving that email makes me feel [...]

Next game we teach her will be shin-kicking

One of Leta’s favorite new games to play is Honk. This game involves Leta squeezing my nose or Jon’s nose, and then we say, “HONK!” When we squeeze her nose back she doesn’t honk yet, she just blows air out of her nose and hums. She can’t get enough of this game and sometimes for [...]

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors hot drinks

I was on the phone last night with Beth when she told me about taking her kids to a park and then to a coffee shop afterward. She said, “I had my BlackBerry,” when I interrupted her. “BLACKBERRY? YOU HAVE A BLACKBERRY?” And then I yelled to Jon who was on the floor with Leta, [...]

Austin Chucklett

Yesterday in an email from Shana (hi! Shana) Chuck was compared to Austin Scarlett from “Project Runway.” I’d say Chuck is a dead ringer.

Feeling Guilty

For being THIS excited that Mallory from Real World Paris is in the pages of the 2005 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition IN A BIKINI. WITH HER BOOBS HANGING OUT. Did you know about this? If I find out that you knew about this and didn’t tell me then we need to sit down and talk [...]

Bourne nightmare

Jones. He got in the way.

Thinking

These are just a few of the best comments ever: Dr. Johnny Fever said at 06:46PM, 02.16.2005: Why don’t you post a pic of your ugly-ass self, badweebisis, and let us see how much you actually resemble a squirt of food poisoning diarrhea at the business end of some 10-year-old BVDs?

What a way to make a living

I guess I would describe Leta’s crawling like this: crab with missing appendage attempts to circle room backwards. Her crawl is not the traditional crawl, the one where the person crawling can actually see where they are going. It’s one of the ugliest things I have ever seen especially when she gets to the yoga [...]
