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

My Darling Husband: Obnoxious Man-Child, The Sequel

Yesterday afternoon Chris came crashing in the front door. “That was some pretty nice fiction you wrote on your blog about me today.” “That was most certainly NOT fiction.” I muttered wrestling with Mac who was dumping kosher salt all over the kitchen floor. “Well, my Mom CALLED ME!” Chris said. “Your Mom called you?!” I gasped.  “Because of that

BIG EXHALE! Ahhhh.  Monday. . . . I know the Internet is buzzing with messages by Monday haters. I used to be one of you.  I remember. . . Then I became a Stay At Home Mom. And weekends feel just like every other day.  .  .EXCEPT, on weekends, I also spend a considerable amount of time mediating conflicts between

Yesterday It Was The Yogurt

My Husband and I just spent five whole days together. While I love my Husband dearly and he’s typically a big help with Mac and our household chores, five days is a LOT. I’m pleased to say we made it through some hectic days without major marital discord, but like any marriage, we have a few minor recurring issues. As

Another Retail Adventure. . .

Seems the weather has gotten a little chilly in these parts and it’s making me a little uneasy.  The last thing I need is to be stuck in this house with the kid for days on end. His newest favorite activity involves hurling everything down the stairs.  I can not adeptly describe how annoying I find this.  For my mental

Kettle Corn Damnit

So I have this adorable Husband who really likes to have everything “buttoned up.”  He’s for better and sometimes worse a details man.  He often eschews an article of clothing because of too many loose strings.  He notices every missed hair when I give him a hair cut.  He also notices every time I put on mascara, paint my toenails

Never have a Threesome with a Clown Contractor

UPDATE!!!!  On the morning of 10/30, the repair men were scheduled to arrive between 7 and 9AM.  At 9:30, the called to let us know they were running late.  Ya think?  At which point, Chris told them not to bother showing up at all.  I’m kinda’ happy he fired them.  But I’m also rather irked my basement is still a

Happy Anniversary!

Chris and I have been together a long time.  But this was our first anniversary with Mac.  So somehow I thought this one should be extra magical.  It didn’t disappoint. . . Crack of Dawn:  Awake to grumpy wet Huggy Bear.  Keep him awake because mother in law is coming to watch him while I run errands. Slightly less crack

Mini Me?

Obviously learning you are expecting a new bundle of joy brings along a myriad of feelings.  Most people claim to feel overjoyed, thrilled, excited, blessed. I felt fear. . . And trepidation. This kid could be exactly like me.   Holy shit. I have plenty of respectable qualities.  Those aren’t the ones I worry about passing along to my offspring. Yesterday,

If You Suspect I’m too Hard On My Husband, You’re Probably Correct. That Still Won’t Stop This Rant

My Husband is genuinely a great guy and he’s really helpful too. Most of the time. And the few times when I find him less than helpful?  I feel compelled to be a bitch about it. I am aware our marriage and parenting is a partnership and there will seldom be a time when the division of our labor is
