Christmas with Teenagers This poem was written as a mom and how my own two teenagers were making us feel this particular year during the holidays.

For their gift list was long and expensive as hell, Mom and Dad worked real hard to keep cool and not … [Read more...] about Christmas with Teenagers

Yes folks, I'm afraid that my youngest, my darling baby, has stumbled upon Internet porn. I was laying on the couch the other day, taking a nap and trying to get the muscles in my back to stop spasming and going ape shit. When I woke, I headed back towards the bedroom and saw that my 10 year old was on my computer watching some sort of video. As soon as he heard me coming, … [Read more...] about Debbie Does Dallas In da House
I had a horrible premonition on Monday. I was taking T. to the pediatrician. The rain was pouring down out of the sky as though every angel in heaven were crying.

Bonding with an infant child is NOT the same as bonding … [Read more...] about A MOTHER & SON BONDING EXPERIENCE OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!
Slacking on Christmas I normally am not the proverbial slacker when it comes to Christmas - at least not in the decorations department! The weekend after Thanksgiving has always been the start of the Christmas season for our family for as long as I can recall. My mother would begin pulling out all of our Christmas decorations and tree-trimming paraphernalia the weekend … [Read more...] about Slacking on Christmas
I try to give my kids the benefit of the doubt. I know they aren't angels, but I like to live in a perfect world where my children will not lie to me when I ask them a question. I am deluding myself, I know. Especially when it comes to homework. Yesterday when they came home I did not check their backpacks. Tre (aka Angel Child w/Horns) hardly ever has homework - he's in … [Read more...] about Why You Should Check Backpacks When They Come Home
