Eye contact

Marlo had just woken up from a nap and was still a little disoriented when I broke out the phone and turned on the front camera so that she could see herself. And that was apparently the last thing she wanted. If this were a video you’d see her dramatically roll her eyes before looking [...]

Set lock screen

I’ve had a photo of Marlo on the lock screen of my iPhone for about six months clearly indicating that I am playing favorites with my children. I make up for it by letting Leta have ice cream after dinner while Marlo is chained to the radiator. Needed a change so I took this photo [...]

Danger ahead

You guys remember when that rattlesnake in the backyard almost killed my dog and swallowed my kid? Don’t worry, animal lovers. We never found him, so I’m sure he’s living comfortably somewhere in some cozy nook UNDERNEATH MY BED. That’s why I sleep with a shovel. And a butcher knife. In my bathtub. Marlo refuses [...]

Animal husbandry

Turtle is still alive, you guys. I still have to remind Leta to feed him, but she doesn’t complain about it. I’m sure it would be another story if she had to bag his poop. (The title of this does not imply that we plan to eat him. It just popped into my head. And [...]

You guys, God is so fun. – Running for Wounded Warriors: On March 26, 2012, [...]

Listen Up

They really need to do an updated version of The Breakfast Club and let Cami dress every single character.

So, Leta did this to her sister and herself. But don’t worry, Mom! IT’S WASHABLE. I don’t really care one whit but I’m terribly disappointed that she didn’t think to draw any skulls.

New Tunes – Angus and Julia Stone

It’s kind of a twofer this week because first up is a brother and sister duo and then it’s the sister’s solo effort, both equally a total damn pleasure to listen to. Angus and Julia are an Australian acoustic folk-pop combo, and their latest album Down the Way released in 2010 was pretty much a [...]
