Taking the Kids to See A Pair of Brown Boobies. . .

I can’t believe people still check my blog daily! THANK YOU!!!!  THANK YOU!! Anyway, we’re plugging along and Mac’s in preK 4 a couple of hours several days a week and Teddy attends a 2-year-old program once a week.  He’s like the damned mayor of that place. . .all “Hey, Ms. Cetta.”  It’s disgustingly adorable.  (Her name is Concetta but

It’s the Friday Funny: Husband v. Used Car

Just before Teddy was born, we got a “new to us” car.  There was just no way I could cram another car seat into my VW convertible.   And while I’d love to be a one car family, Baltimore just isn’t completely there yet with its public transportation system. . . Anyway, it was a used car but a NICE

This, That, and The Other. . .

I have a list a mile long of stuff I want to post. Time is NOT on my side. For one thing, Teddy has recently decided he LOVES feeding himself. So now I have two children dumping enough food on the floor on a daily basis to feed a small country.  And that small country is apparently Satan’s Lap Hound.

The Dark Side. . .

After great reluctance and with much trepidation, I’ve done it. FACEBOOK. So yeah. Currently I’m just dumping my entire Twitter feed into it. But I have a plan. The plan is:  I have no damned plan!   I’m working on a plan. . . You want to help me with it? Have any thoughts? My initial though was Facebook would

The BREAST err BEST Father’s Day EV-AH!

So Saturday, we decided we’d take the boys to North Point State Park for one of our most favorite hikes. There are snakes. . . But the trail is worth it. In a short, easy walk on the Black Marsh Trail, you can experience shaded woods, a large marsh environment, an abandoned building, AND a beach.  And if you’re standing

What I Do When I’m Not Here. . .Again. . .

Mother was visiting this past week.  I had high expectations that I’d get our “new” bedroom in good order but it just didn’t happen. . . Here’s what’s been happening: A Happy Father’s Day Weekend.  XO

And Then The Man Brings The Waffles. . .

I’ve been MIA again.  Sigh. I’m afraid this might be more the norm as summer gets rolling. May is flying by and it’s always such a busy month.  I’m scrambling to get cards mailed, parties planned, the yard and house in good order for the summer. You know how we like to visit the Hyatt in Cambridge, Maryland?  We like

Busy. . .

We have a lot going on this weekend so I’m trying to waddle – literally waddle – my way through a lot of chores and stuff in the next couple days. I wanted to prep a nice shiny pictograph of all the ways Mac spends his time at the Pre-K nature drop in for today’s post but it’s going to

The Race to Eternal Damnation

Sorry about the spotty posting recently.  We were having some technology issues. . .and a leaky sink. . .and the kid dropped my keys in a storm water grate in the Park. . .but those are all posts for another day. . . Hopefully, the wireless Internet is planning to function consistently again.  And my phone seems to be working

Husband Speaks, Effectively Cock-blocking HIMSELF

So not that it bothers me much given my hugely pregnant state, but suffice to say there aren’t exactly any fireworks in our bedroom these days. Maybe it’s the twin beds? Whatever the reason, I think it’s starting to get to my Husband a little bit. . .Just yesterday he somehow put a dent in the car AND I caught
