In Response to Slate.com

A few weeks ago, I enjoyed reading “My Life Is a Waking Nightmare,” by Ruth Graham on Slate.com. She wrote from the perspective of a childless person who is encountering what feels like a new wave of parenting articles, spoofs, and blogs–including my post, “So You Would Like to Have Three Children.” In short, Ms.

Whodunnit?

This morning, like most mornings, I woke up. I looked at my phone, turned off my alarm, answered some texts from a friend about how he likes to cook cabbage and brussels sprouts, and rolled over–into something. Oh no, I thought. When you have pets, rolling over into mystery substances or objects is usually not

Rebuttal and Train Museums

In my post entitled, “You Have Your Hands Full,” I said I had had quite a day at the train museum. Let’s back up a bit. Recently, “So You Would Like to Have Three Children” has been widely shared, and the comments have poured in. Many of them are from people sharing their own experiences,

You Have Your Hands Full…

Yesterday, I went to the train museum with my children. This really warrants its own blog post, but in the meantime, IT happened. Exhausted (remember, another post is coming), I got to the second-floor area with the toy trains children can play with. I sat down next to another woman, and we watched the kids

Trees of Christmas Past, Present, and Future

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the other night I was thinking about Christmas trees. I had been trying  to figure out what to do on the Christmas-tree front. Way back in college I used to get my own trees on my own, though they tended to be of the smallish variety. The living room of my current house

’Tis the Season for Silly Photos

Partially inspired by my friend Susan‘s wonderful Christmas photo, I thought it would be fun to post a collection of funny or interesting holiday photos. These could be photos of family, kids, animals, random strangers–whatever you want. They just need to be sort of winter-holiday festive and funny. If I can get a silly collection

Friday Funny: More Photos of Men and Cats!

Inspired by the popularity of my Friday Funny entitled Absolute Worst Pictures of Men and Cats, and because I myself liked that post so much, I am sharing another cat/men blog. This one’s slightly more eye-candy oriented. Des Hommes et Des Chatons (Men and Cats)   Again, you have to click on the link above to

No Shoes, No Shirt, No…

Recovering from the flu and not feeling up to making dinner, I took the kids to Jamba Juice. They were very excited. I seated the children at the counter while we waited, and Asher took off his shoes. If you know Asher, you are not surprised that he took his shoes off at a Jamba
