Message to YouTube

Filed Under: Life

Dear YouTube, I love you. You have given my daughter, my husband, and me hours and hours of enjoyment. But, I’m pretty pissed off at you right now. The League of Maternal Justice posted a breastfeeding montage on your site in response to Facebook banning a picture of a woman breastfeeding her child. It was a nice video. No ...

Post Office Apology

Filed Under: Uncategorized

The Christmas season is now officially upon us. Since we live about 16 hours away from our family, we receive all of our Christmas presents via the Post Office or UPS and FedEx. I’ve never been too concerned about loosing a package in the mail or scared that something would get broken. Until I got this in the ...

Death To You, Molar

Filed Under: Life

Last night was one of those nights when I wished that I could just snap my fingers and Cara would have a mouthful of teeth. All day she would be playing one minute and crying the next. I could have sworn that she had two personalities; she would be chasing Oscar and then she would crumple into ...

The Day After

Filed Under: Food and Drink

We’re not really the holiday kind of people. If left to our own devices, Thanksgiving would probably just be a day in which everything is closed and there isn’t anything good on TV. For some reason, Christmas is kind of the same. But, I have to say that we had a really good time at our friends’ house ...

I’m Just Asking for Three Hours

Filed Under: Life

If your child has been sleeping through the night since conception, I don’t want to hear about it. Seriously. Don’t tell me. And, while you’re at it, go to hell. I hate you. Well that sounded a bit mean, huh? I don’t really hate you. You’ve always been such a nice person. I’m just bitter ...

Beauty Confidential

Filed Under: Uncategorized

I love, love, love this book! How’s that for honest? Written by a former beauty editor and fellow blogger who was “outed” by The New York Post, Beauty Confidential is like The Devil Wears Prada meets Glamour and Allure. I found myself making notes in the margins and writing down products to research. The price guides at the end ...

Listen To Your Kids

Filed Under: Life

Last week I had my IQ tested and this week I found out the results. While I have a high IQ, my “short term memory” score was startling low. Like almost below-average low. My shrink told me that a score that low, when compared to my high scores on the other subtests, would lead her to ...

I Didn’t Get the Joke

I have always been a lover of animals. When I was much younger, my love bordered on fanaticism/obsession. I watched way too many hours of Wild Kingdom and could name just about every animal in our local museum. So, you can imagine my elation when I was told that we were going to visit the Memphis Zoo. As we ...

Who Needs Focus?

Filed Under: Tech/Videos/Video Games

One thing that every new blogger learns is that a blog must have a “focus”. The idea is that, in order to build a readership, you must be an expert in something and only write about that something. All you have to do is check out my Categories to realize that I don’t do focus. I don’t want ...
