I've been asked over the years, by non-bloggers mostly, if I ever worry about how much I write about my children on the internet. Or even why I do it at all. There are certainly people that would not take... Continue reading

I've been mulling over the story of Abby Sunderland since first hearing she was lost at sea earlier this week. As a mother I am especially relieved to hear she has been rescued and is safe. As a mother I... Continue reading

My husband and his brother moved their mother into a nursing home last week. It has been a long time coming, yet seemed to move far too quickly once the decision was made. She has Alzheimer’s disease and has reached... Continue reading

All that "holy shit get it out of me" pain came as a shock to you too, huh? I don't think you can ever be prepared for that until you do it. Happy Birthday Boston!

My boys both think I'm beautiful. And I'm starting to believe my husband does too. I've always been soft, although I'm definitely softer now than I used to be. I like to think there is something feminine and uber-motherly about soft. Plus it cracks my 2 1/2 year old up when he puts a Matchbox car on my belly and it rolls down every time. I'd hate to think I was depriving him of so much fun!

I love having my toes painted. Mostly because my feet aren't really that attractive and a little color helps, or at least makes me think so. It also makes me feel good to look down when I'm doing karate and see something girly. I haven't done my finger nails in years though. I can't be bothered with the time involved or the expense.

Exactly Stephanie! What if it was your child? When did it become OK to only worry about yourself? I just want to know that people are taking the time to understand the issue, and not assuming the worst. Fear can be a dangerous thing.

Agreed, and very well said! My few minutes of speaking up was a tiny drop in a very large pond full of fear and hate. I know I didn't change anyone's mind that night, but just standing up like that for something I believe in was like lighting a little flame inside me. I don't think it will take quite as much provocation to do it again, and hopefully do it better.

I cant even imagine the chaos our boys would create if they were together! Even in a padded room with nothing else. Im so ready whenever you are though!

OMG, my son did the same thing to the towel ring in our powder room. Like two years ago. Its still sitting there waiting to be repaired. Yesterday I fixed the drain plug in our bathroom sink. To do it I had to remove the pieces of pipe underneath. I found my Citizen watch that had been missing for two months in the pipe. *sigh*
