I'm a mother...ergo I facepalm. Royally! My child, adorable tailless monkey that he is, is still prone to doing things ass backwards plenty of times. When he was a baby he'd bite off the bottom of his ice cream cone and then rush to suck up the swiftly flowing ice cream that was melting all... Continue Reading →
A lot has been written about the people in the frontlines of this pandemic. As it should be. They literally are the first line of defence and often end up in hazardous situations themselves in the process of trying to cure or keep the populace safe. But I don't think enough has been written about... Continue Reading →
Parenting is a delight and a joy depending upon which time of day, which season and generally which parent you catch hold of. On some days the WTF moments are so numerous that you really need to take a step back and say to yourself, "Did I knowingly bring forth that child into this world?"... Continue Reading →

Enough with the wiping the drool! It's a good look on me and it's staying! I have experience firsthand with only one child and that's not counting the immature people in my life who refuse to grow up. I have one child. ONE. TO. But he might as well be part of a set of... Continue Reading →
I write a LOT about parenting. Usually in states of bewilderment or gripes because while it's a beautiful thing to experience (NOT) it is REPLETE with pitfalls, second-guessing oneself and for me: a usually irresistible urge to flip someone off. What the Bell Curve looks like in my life! I know plenty of people who... Continue Reading →
My feet are dry and the heels are cracked but I can't figure out why. I badly want an hour long pedi but that's not gonna happen in the foreseeable future so... am blaming it on the heat and lockdown because it's du jour. Red was busy tapping away at his laptop and I told... Continue Reading →
Many, many years ago two girls were running late for a class with a rather strict teacher. The saving grace was that this teacher was a very good one so her snark and barbs didn't always wound. But she valued punctuality and that's one thing college students are notorious good at being bad in.It was... Continue Reading →
Of all the stories floating around about Hitler's demise, am completely inclined to believe the one where he met his end in the bunker. That was a lockdown too and he was shut in for an unforeseeable period with a "loved one"...complete recipe for disaster!
