I had completely forgotten what it was like to take a 5-year-old swimming. But, as it is with all things related to kids, it all comes back to you with a bang! TO has always been fairly independent when it comes to things he likes to do. He shucked his floaties quickly and was frolicking … Continue reading Pool Time Tales

Eye Roll Blog Post#2
The car mats have got pretty dirty and I wanted to wash them out before we stepped out next. It's a simple task actually...use a hand shower or a forceful spray to get the initial layer of dirt and dust off, sprinkle a bit of detergent on the mats, let them soak for a few … Continue reading Eye Roll Blog Post#2
The Dementia Diagnosis
One of Red's cousins will be visiting us soon and I was telling TO about him. He'll be meeting a brand new set of cousins and an aunt he's not seen before so I was trying to give him some background while we set out for errands this morning. This uncle of his is a … Continue reading The Dementia Diagnosis
Accurate But Politically Incorrect
TO is learning about genetics and most things associated with them. I'm ashamed to say that barring being familiar with terms, I can't recollect the definition without looking it up and most times I look them up with a keywords "for dummies" because they have the easiest definitions to understand.

Hey..Don’t Mention It!
Everyone in my family knows how I cling to my coffee. The bros-before-hos kind of a thing but with coffee instead. After a quick siesta a little while ago, I made my usual non-verbal gestures to Red and asked him to make me a cup so I could shake off the afternoon meal from my … Continue reading Hey..Don’t Mention It!
The Retro Song Bloglet
Sometimes while waiting for the quinoa to get cooked all the way through, you think of Bon Jovi and his ballads. And then Bed of Roses pops into your head. And you play it and sing along till your flesh and blood comes and tells you that he can't hear the narrator talk about the … Continue reading The Retro Song Bloglet
TO just shocked me a few seconds ago when he found a bug crawling around in his room. He picked up my slipper (not his, mine) and said, "Say hello to my little friend!" and squished it into oblivion!! When did he see Scarface and how did he even know this quote?!!
