How would you feel… about Jello Wrestling?

My girlfriend called me tonight upset with her husband. Apparently she is mad because he spent the entire evening down at his favorite bar watching girls wrestle in jello. It was a “regular’s” birthday and they were doing it as a spoof. My girlfriend’s hubby stayed out pretty late (past 12:30 a.m.) because he offered [...]

Mommy, I don’t feel well.

For the first time that I can remember, SM is not feeling well. I first noticed something was up when I picked him up from my mom’s after work today. I asked him if he wanted to go to McDonald’s for dinner. He said no… (What??) That is correct, he said no. Someone call the [...]

It’s 4:15 a.m…..Time to Wake Up Mommy

It won’t stop… B-man can not seem to sleep much past 4 a.m. anymore and it is killing me. This morning he woke up at 4:15 a.m. and, even though I gave him a bottle (I know, I know… I need to break him of the habit), he wouldn’t/couldn’t fall back to sleep. Right now [...]

Missing Dad

Yesterday my DH headed down to Cumberland for the weekend with a few friends. While he said goodbye to the boys and told them he’d see them on Sunday, I don’t think they really understood that he was going somewhere. This morning, after being up for about an hour, I hear the B-man (age 2) [...]

Running on Empty

Running on Empty

I’m tired. I know, as mothers, we all work hard and we work 24/7, but I’m pooped. I am not exactly sure why, but I am. What I can come up with: #1 – Work. Work is always, and will always be (thank goodness) crazy. Right now it’s planning season (planning for 4th quarter) and [...]

To make a long [...]

My Little Man is Growing Up

My Little Man is Growing Up

He did it! SM made it the entire week with out getting a stick pulled! Getting a stick pulled is what happens when children fail to follow classroom rules. The first stick is usually pulled for something minor (not listening) and it escalates up to visiting the principal (the dreaded fourth stick!). I am so [...]
