Party Foul

When I was in graduate school studying publishing, we discussed a certain author and her series in my book marketing class. A well-known author, she was held up as having her act together on the marketing front. So when I met someone who said she was his grandmother, I was in awe. My new friend

She’s a Princess Queen

My daughter sings. She sings all the time. She makes up songs all the time. Granted, when her children’s choir stands in front of our church, she mostly forgets to sing and just smiles at me instead. But when she’s alone, she sings. She also tends toward the dramatic in her singing. Several years ago,

Friday Funny: Target Women

If you have ever been irritated by how the media treats men, this one’s for you. Target Women: Doofy Husbands: (Note: a sad thing happened, which was that the

Penis Envy

Our first child was a girl. Partly because of this, I think of her as kind of a “starter child.” I know it must be because I’m a woman, but having a child with a penis just felt entirely outside of my skill set. When we potty trained Selah, it seemed straightforward. The differences between

Going Crazy

So here’s a little story from my husband: “Sometimes I’m sure I’m gonna go crazy,” I mutter to myself while driving. “Sometimes I feel like I’m going crazy…and then I go crazy,” Asher mutters to himself in the backseat.   I think I need not write any more.

At Least It’ll Make a Good Blog Post

We were planning to go camping for Memorial Day weekend. However, though the weather has been outright ridiculous lately, with day after day of warm sun–it suddenly cooled off for the weekend. We had already been a little worried about bringing three kids out to the woods, and when we realized that the highs would

Friday Funny: Sac Earthquake 2013

As  many of you know, a devastating earthquake tore through the Sacramento region last night. My chair was wobbled, and the pans hanging in the kitchen clanged together a little bit. Most importantly, my cat was really nervous. Or maybe she was just hungry. I hope this photo can serve as as reminder of what
