This shit ain’t easy (a bedtime story).

July 31, 2008

Today sucked. Everything caught up with me. Working full-time, being a mom, trying to date – mix all of that with a good dose of self-doubt and you’ve got the ingredients for one grumpy mama.

Fall at your own risk.

July 28, 2008

This summer I did something I’ve never done before… I planted six teeny tiny tomato plants. I watered them, staked them and then the little yellow flowers showed up, then the green little tomatoes. We’ve been patiently waiting for them to turn red. And Benjamin, like any 2.4 year old would be, has been enthralled […]

On a lighter note … this is hysterical and it’s all real. This Saturday afternoon I let Benjamin entertain himself in front of the recording iMac again. This time I gave him a cowboy hat … but that’s just the beginning. Watch what happens when I show up with some clean clothes.
