I blame Facebook

Because, you know, Facebook is the source of All That Is Evil. Seriously, so much time has gone by since I last posted, I can only chalk it up to the fact that I seem to now post the little things in my life to Facebook instead of to my blog. However, today’s little Facebook […]

Last day of school

There was much joy in our house this morning. Even the couple kids (who shall remain nameless) who are normally bite-your-head-off whiny/grumpy in the morning had smiles.   Just for kicks, I’m putting up their first day of school picture from this year to see if/how much they have changed.

Bathroom Bullying

It seems that bullying at my boys’ school often takes the form of peeking over and/or under the stalls in the bathroom when someone is in there doing their business or trying to change. I just became aware of this tactic last fall, when Cody informed me that he refuses to go to the bathroom […]

My little gentleman

The other day, Logan brought home a journal he made at school. I had to laugh at the cover, where Logan had spelled his middle name, as he does with every word he doesn’t know how to spell, phonetically. No comment on the misspelled last name.(He and I have been over it many times.) As […]

Goals, continued

Yesterday I talked about my plans for the kids over summer break. One of my ideas is to make up some goals for them to work toward, mainly life skills that they need to know. My main goals for the boys are for them to learn to tie their shoes and ride their bikes without […]

Let me preface this post with the acknowledgement that I love my kids dearly. Seriously. I love spending time with them, I love having them around me and they bring me a great deal of joy. However. I’ve gotten used to this whole being-at-home-by-myself routine and I must say, I’m quite productive while the kids […]

Phonetic spelling

Yesterday, Logan brought home a paper he did in computer class. It has every month of the year in a different color and different font, all spelled correctly. What he did not spell correctly is his name. His middle name, to be precise. Logan’s middle name is Matthew. Here’s how he spelled it: Mathyou The […]

My almost-teenagers

My daughters, who will officially be teenagers next month, just got home from a Glow-In-the-Dark Middle School dance. Needless to say, I’m having mini mind fits because they are growing up far too fast, and because their growing up in turn means I’m growing older just as quickly. So, today’s post is an homage to […]
