Soon after my husband’s dear Grandma Lorenzen passed away, my son provided us a reminder of her.
Grandma Lorenzen had always collected little animal figurines. Years ago, I had given her a small eagle. After her passing, we kept this memento of her. My husband kept it in a little chest in “his” closet. (My husband is assigned the guest room closet for his clothes. I’m sure there are many other homes in which the guest room closet serves as The Husband’s…Continue

We don’t get too worked up about a little mess at our house
My friend Emily over at The Motherhood recently asked me to co-host an online discussion about how to “unspoil” your child. Due to a scheduling conflict, I couldn’t participate, which was disappointing for me. I find spoiling kids to be a particularly annoying habit of many parents.

We’ve long been fans of Working Mother even though its very title denotes, “I have a job” when in fact with our continued economic turmoil it could be renamed, “I Want to be a Working Mother or “I Need to be a Working Mother.” Nevertheless, Working Mother magazine is famous for its “lists” such as 2010’s,…Continue

Gentlemen, I’m about to take you on a trip through one of the world’s most mysterious destinations. A place all men fear. Even those brave enough to climb the tallest mountains and battle the biggest armies dare not enter this place.…Continue
Everyone likes date night right? Everyone looks forward to a little grown-up time sans kids right?
Hmmm. I’m about to discuss something controversial. Every mom blogger knows that the most controversial thing you can write about is anything having to do with your husband.
Well, I am going to venture a guess that I am not alone in date-night-related-anxiety.
Usually, when date night is planned, it is in response to an over-stressed schedule and the…Continue

I’m never buying pants again. I mean it, never. They make them for tall and skinny ladies, forgetting some of us are, let‘s say, “vertically challenged.” I plan to write a strongly worded letter to some of these people just to let them know that they’ve given me a complex.
Along with my letter, I intend to include a copy of the therapy bill for which they are…Continue
This weekend Saturday Night Live had a video short about a new facebook app. It shows Andy Samberg as a college kid who is upset to find his mom is now on facebook.
http://www.hulu.com/watch/184577/saturday-night-live-moms-on-facebook The point of the app is to hide from your mom what you are really doing on facebook. If you post something that you know your mom…

So, it's time to be real here, blogosphere.
I'm a full-time employee going to graduate school half-time with two children, church commitments and a whole host of friends cause I'm really *that* awesome (sarcasm intended). I'm trying to get rid of Lymes, had pnuemonia already since school started, and watching my husband pass a kidney stone.
This blog is not working for me.…

When we noticed the 5th grade boys at our sons’ elementary school sporting “I Love Boobies!” bracelets, our reaction was less than favorable. In fact, we thought, “How inappropriate!” Two days later I was driving my 10-year old to buy one in every color. You see, the purpose of the “I Love Boobies!” campaign is to “help…Continue

Raising Your Parents
(as seen in Bridges Magazine)
Normal. Finding things in life that fit this description is a rarity, indeed. I’ve also discovered, in my short 29 years, that normal is seriously boring. Now, this is not to say that I’ve not run myself around…Continue
