Of Romance and Fried Eyeballs

Four years ago I wrote this blog post and I'm still laughing about it. Sometimes all the way to the loo because when Red ends up being funny inadvertently, it's bad for my bladder.

Nothing Surprises Me…I’m A Mom!

Ermm...that's a contradiction actually. Nothing does surprise me because a child's mind is SO elastic that it works in ways I can't begin to imagine and wish it didn't. And yet when the unimaginable (for adults) happens it's also a surprise because the offspring chose to do (read destroy) yet another thing in his own … Continue reading Nothing Surprises Me…I’m A Mom!
