I Miss Potty Training
When Ironflower became a toddler, I remember being constantly shocked at who my docile, sweet baby could become in the blink of an eye. It didn't take me long to realize that the only reason she had seemed so docile before was because she couldn't talk yet....

That Time My Kid Missed A Month Of School
Welcome back to those of you who probably didn't enthusiastically didn't vote for Trump. Also, I started this post a while back, but didn't finish it thanks to my much needed Trump rant. Anyway. . . As I type, Ironflower is lolling on the couch on a Wednesd...

I Cannot
I keep trying to write about other things, but I cannot. It's not so much what Trump and his buddies in Congress are trying to do to this country; I expected that. It's the people defending the same things they (and Trump) relentlessly criticized Obama and ...

Let's Talk About Screens, Baby*
*With apologies to Salt-n-Pepa .  Ever since I miserably failed at not letting my tiny people watch TV (Ironflower was 7 months old and teething, The Wiggles were the only thing that stopped her from howling. It's been downhill from there), I have at least ...

In Which I Still Do Not Quite Meet Paul Rudd
I have had a crush on Paul Rudd for twenty years now (ever since Clueless). It intensified when I moved to Kansas City; he's from there and is apparently very cool and down to earth when he goes back home to visit. He usually goes to a bar where my friend w...

Going To England
Writing this post makes me sympathetic to that guy who didn't call me after we went on a couple of fabulous dates, then was hurt I wasn't friendly when I ran into him. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm sorry I haven't called  written in way too lon...

Happy 9th Birthday, Lovebug!
Dear Lovebug,       I haven't blogged in a long while, but you've inspired me. You are such a great kid; though with all the maturing you've done this year it seems more appropriate to call you a young man. You are so responsible and helpful. Though you do ...

Evolution 2015
I always write a New Year's post. Always being a relative term - I only checked for the last two years. So I know I wrote a New Year's post in 2012 and another in 2013 .  I stopped checking for older New Year's posts because I knew they wouldn't be as good ...
