Reluctant Mother Tries “Story” Hour

Yesterday it rained.  A Lot.  With  no let up. Anyone with children knows this is bad news.  Not being able to get outside or out of the house for a little while each day often results in meltdowns, missed naps, and property destruction (and that’s just me. . .don’t even get me started on the kid’s behavior). All morning, I

Technically, It Was Abandoned Property. The Police Said So.

Wednesday after my highly unproductive prenatal appointment, Mac and I hit the Park for our evening walk a little earlier than usual.  Chris went running and met us at the far side of the Park for the walk home. On our way into the Park, Mac and I passed a tricycle.  A small, OLD, purple tricycle.  It was sitting unattended

Shut Up Already Sunday!

I can’t describe to you the ways the Eastern Shore makes my heart sing. I LOVE Baltimore.  I love everything about Maryland actually. . .but if we’re being honest, lately, I feel most inspired, awake and alive, once we get to the other side of the Bridge. . .  

Friday Funny: Holy #$%#%^ What IS THAT?!

The other day, I took Mac to the park and the playground.  It was a nice day and we had a good time.  On the way back, while I was waiting at the cross walk, I looked across the street and noticed something I hadn’t seen previously: Whoa. . .The most impressive painted window screen I’ve ever seen!  It’s awesome

It’s Gross Humor. . .At My Own Expense. . .With Bonus Drunk Pics!

Ok.  So what follows is a little gross and veers a little into TMI territory. . .consider yourselves warned. . . Last Wednesday and Thursday nights we stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, Maryland.  It’s a really nice waterfront resort (We know it’s a resort because they charge resort fees – whatever the eff they are for?) and they

Shut Up Already! Sunday: Blackwater Wildlife Refuge

  Turkey vulture. . .Not the most attractive bird.  Yet, when I saw this one so close, I realized how lovely its feathers are. . .iridescent with hints of blue and green and purple.

Two Valuable Parenting Lessons, Reluctant Mother Style

You might recall in my last post, I decided to be somewhat uncharacteristically kind and non-judgmental of fellow Mother I encountered in the Park. Yeah.  That feeling was nice while it lasted. . . Yesterday, Mac and I took a long walk to Fells Point.  We hadn’t been to the area in a while and the weather was so nice,

Forgive Me, For I Have Sinned. . .Again

Or at least it looks bad. . .really bad. . . Husband is out-of-town for work. And because I’m the proud, well-documented lazy-ass mother of a 15 month-old, I decided I should invite my Mother to visit for a few days. Sunday evening after a wild day of birding (3 rarities – 1 of which was mega), while my Husband
