My six-year-old: “Mom, how come you have parents when you and Dad already are parents?”
Me: “Well, we were your age once. And parents are still parents, even after their kids grow up.” And then I started to go into how he also had aunts and uncles. And cousins.

My daughters decided to teach my six-year-old to meditate.

From the side room, I heard “Ohm! Ohm! Ohm!”

I don’t think the six-year-old quite got it.  Because I also heard, “Gnome! Gnome! Gnome!”



There’s that magical moment when you actually feel ahead of the game, so to speak.  All the lunches are packed for schools the next day.  The kids are all bathed and on track for bedtimes.

And then you realize that school doesn’t start until Wednesday and the kids have two more days of vacation …

Kids and Cussin’


Our 9-year-old wanted to watch something, but we said no, stating that it wasn’t appropriate.

Her eyes got huge. Grinning she said, “THERE’S MORE!”

Face-palm. Mom fail.


Feeling rough, but hanging in there. My chronic illness has been rearing its ugly head even more lately. Sometimes, I just have to give in and go to sleep. Rest first, write next.

Must NOT give into temptation …
