Who The EFF is Riley?! Damn, Who The Hell Am I?

Ok. You know me, you know this much:  I am a Mom and I take that seriously – more seriously than I’ve ever pursued anything else in my life. I want to soak up every moment I have with my children before they decide they hate me err become independent. . .So, I. AM. ALWAYS. LURKING. We don’t have babysitters.

“Your Children Have Magnificent Heads”

OF HAIR? MAGNIFICENT HEADS OF HAIR?! RIGHT?!!!!! THESE BOYS HAVE GREAT HAIR! Nope. Not.  Even.  Close. “So Mom, these kids have ginormous heads.  How did that work out for you?  Ouch.” Said the volunteer at the Patterson Park Pagoda. Is this even happening?   What?   Hold up. You’ve seen my children and all you can mention is that they

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 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

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

Hell On Earth AKA Pre-K Day at the Nature Center

It’s Monday. . .again.  Just a few more Monday’s and hopefully I’ll be able to evict the fast growing little parasite who is taking up a lot of premium real estate in my body. . .make room for some good fall beer. . .Or to breathe. . .Both seem vital to me currently. Anyway, on Mondays the local nature center

In Which Some Ass Parks Poorly And Causes ME To Nearly Bust A Gasket

The weather here as been stellar.  It’s like a pregnant woman’s dream:  nearly no humidity, sunny, just warm enough. . . And my little guy is still snotty.  So we’ve been trying to spend time outdoors doing things that don’t get him too exhausted and away from things other children might touch so he doesn’t make others sick too. Yesterday

My Baby Bump Was Assaulted By A Drunk!

So remember from yesterday’s uncharacteristically “thoughtful” post, we had dinner with my in-laws last weekend? We went to church Saturday evening.  Church was hotter than hell itself.  I’m certain of it.  I CANNOT believe we picked a church without air conditioning!  I’ll NEVER make that mistake again. It was touch and go, but we all made it out alive.  And

Because I Need To Get Something, ANYTHING Finished

Oh mah word!  This place.  Our house is starting to look like an episode of Hoarders.  And it’s not because we have a ton of stuff.  It’s because I can’t seem to find the time to get said stuff organized and put in its designated places. Of course, I thought I had all this time to get my act together

I Seemed to Have Misplaced My “Give A Damn”

So the kid stuck it to me good yesterday. He was up early in the morning.  We hit the Park and we walked a lot.  So by the time we got home, he was pretty tired and testy.  While I was getting him some lunch, he asked for “cray” and “pay-per.” I am always happy to oblige when he asks
