“They Repeat.”

May 15, 2008

My best friend Mia mouthed this to me the other night while Benjamin and Sydney, her four year old daughter, were huddled beneath us eating cookies. I had been talking about another adult, someone everyone in the room knows and has contact with frequently. Bad mommy. And naive mommy. I may know a lot about […]

Mother’s Day = Pamper Time

May 11, 2008

No husband to pamper me + one adorable two year old son who has no concept of holidays = me, treating myself to a new ring, a new super cute hat and an even cuter new dress! (I know, I splurged. Oh well)

If you haven’t already – go treat yourself. Even if it’s just some new nail polish or a magazine!

And HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY my single mamas!

Did you pamper yourself today too? Were the kids good? So far Benjamin has been especially pleasant, minus dumping an entire bucket of toy dinosaurs out at the store and locking himself in the dressing room. That was fun.

A frog in a microwave.

May 7, 2008

Recently someone described me as a frog in a microwave. (I’ve been slammed with projects lately).

“What? What in the hell does that mean?” I ask, my eyes are probably bugging out of my head with stress.

“It’s like you’re in there, and you know – and if you’re in there much longer … you’ll explode.”

A few days ago I read a brochure about frogs dying off and rapidly nearing an extinction. Ampibiens, it said, are like canaries in a coal mine – the first species to fall victim to global warming. Is that true?

Feel like there’s something with this frog theme.

And last month Benjamin’s audio CD from Giddio was about frogs. About three kids trying to save some local frogs from a highway construction project.

Are the frogs trying to tell me something?

Warning: this is what happens to single moms who do not get enough sleep. Sleep single parents – STOP reading this blog and go to sleep.

This frog is definitely going to pass out and wake up with her two-year-old prince. How old are your princesses and princes? How do you manage to keep up with them?
