Good Friday Rerun
This morning, Little T asked me to tell her the story of when Jesus died. I was a little occupied with 3 or 4 other multi-tasking distractions, so I tapped her 5 year old sister for the job. (Little T told me a few weeks ago that Lady E had told her the sto...

So Over Frozen
After disappointing my daughters this morning and earning the title Meanest Mom Ever for the umpteenth time by not agreeing to buy a Do You Want to Build a Snowman ringtone for my phone, that song was -- predictably -- stuck in my head.  I even made a graph...

Kurt! I Had No Idea I Loved You So!
I have learned more cool stuff about Kurt Vonnegut in the last few weeks than I ever thought I would want to know.   First, there was the article in the Huffington Post  about the letter Mr. Vonnegut wrote in 2006 to a class of high school students who had ...

Denial is a river you can float pretty far on...
Sunday started far too early yesterday.  Curse that Daylight Savings Time thing.  There I was, cuddling up with my youngest at 6:45am, feeling the full effects of missing a precious hour of snooze. She, on the other hand, was radiant at that ungodly hour.  ...

Me, to 9 year old daughter: "Time to get up!"

Her: "Nooooooooo. I don't want to....noooooo..." General whining.

Her: "Maybe you could put your mind to shutting your mouth."

Score one for the 9 year old.
