Big Dump

… trucks, that is! So it seems our town has a rather cool Big Truck Day every year. It’s a hit with all the kids, but the boys especially. The only hang up with this thing is that you have to register for it like it’s a class. A very expensive one day class. I […]

Ever have a moment where you know you’ve done something wrong as a parent? You know logically you did what you could, but somehow you still end up looking around going … “Really? This is how you interpreted what i just said?” Hypothetically one of these moments might be sitting in the bathroom. A trip […]

Shitty Night

Literally. Two nights ago i decided not to take the dog into the bedroom with me. I’ve been having trouble sleeping and it seems he’s had no trouble. He’s been woofing and whining in his sleep and it doesn’t take much to wake me up. I actually had a pretty restful night’s sleep that night […]

The Favorite

Of COURSE I don’t have a favorite child! Now that that’s out of the way, I must say … come on! Of course i do !! But it changes. It changes from who is spitting that day, who isn’t talking back. Who is responding to directions. Who is letting me pee in peace. Who is […]
