My kid rates fairly middling to high on the maintenance scale. As a family am sure we all do. In each others's eyes if nothing else We rate above average on the drama scale too. And not the kind that rates the good drama and invites curtain calls and huge bouquets of roses. This is … Continue reading Saturday Facepalms
The Prodigal Returns
Last weekend I went back to pray at the altar of the gym gods after a long, long a time. I know why I stopped going and it wasn't a good enough reason then and isn't one now either. But I like to give myself brownie points for attempting to get back on the horse/bike...you … Continue reading The Prodigal Returns
How To Talk So Kids Will Listen
This is going into the category of a bloglet viz it'll be brief. There's a book my husband bought me once the brat started pre-primary...it's called How To Talk So Kids Will Listen And Listen So Kids Will Talk.

Brian Gordon is someone every parent and non-parent should read (although … Continue reading Book Review- Fowl Language
There’s A Great White Under The Bed
It's only 3 inches long but my big toe did come in contact with its great gaping maws...and this isn't the first time there was a "dangerous" animal lurking where it shouldn't have been. We've had similar incidents earlier also. Want to know what else is going on? Well there's a mini Giant Octopus hiding behind … Continue reading There’s A Great White Under The Bed
5 Days Into 2016
On the 4th day of 2016 my kid went back to schoooool...and a partridge in a pear tree! Not! I couldn't help myself...am still in holiday mode and the 12 days of Christmas is one of my favorite holiday songs along with the Carol of the Bells. But this version of the latter is one … Continue reading 5 Days Into 2016
