How Did This Happen?

June 19th, 2017 · No Comments

Today, my baby, my BoyChild, my youngest child turned 15. For those of you who have read for awhile, yes, you can let that sink in for a moment.  It has been taking it’s toll on me. He is compassionate, challenging, smart, rude, funny, frustrating, quirky, kind, crude, sweet, gentle, obstinate…I cannot think of enough adjectives to […]

Random Thoughts

October 19th, 2011 · No Comments

Random thoughts in no particular order. The Whole Foods store FINALLY opened up here.  I love, love, love it.  I’ve been there several times.  I’ve not actually bought anything while there though I’ve taken a lot of pictures and posted them to FB and sent them to friends who haven’t been yet.  If we had […]

Point of View

I was much more enthusiastic about this: when I thought it was INSIDE the Bass Pro Shop. He ultimately caught this: but then we were faced with what to do with it. He didn’t want to throw it back. I offered to cook it, if his Father would clean it, but he didn’t want to […]

Jewerly into Cold Hard Cash

July 13th, 2009 · 2 Comments

The other night we were driving home after dinner and ice cream. Out of the blue, the BoyChild said, “Mom, do you have any jewelry you’d like to turn into cold hard cash?” Me thinks he may be watching too much television these days.

Last night we went to watch the fireworks. The BoyChild hasn’t been in a long time because they don’t usually start until after he has to be asleep.  Tonight he valiently tried to stay awake in order to get to go and he was successful. About mid-way through the fireworks show he turned to me […]

The BoyChild is Seven!

June 26th, 2009 · 2 Comments

The BoyChild turned seven last Friday. I can’t remember when, or how he went from this: to this: He swims now.   David reports he actually dived off the diving board.  He’s been in swimming lessons every summer since he was little, but this is the first summer he’s actually voluntarily put his head under […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

Overheard from the BoyChild while he’s playing in the bath. We are waiting for the ships to arrive and then the whole planet will be destroyed. Good luck, Sir.  We are running out of fuel. I need the commander of the ship to turn his ship off to save himself.  Actually not to save himself.  […]

This happened this weekend

May 5th, 2009 · 1 Comment

This happened this weekend.  It was a first for the BoyChild. Unfortunately,  he must have swallowed it because it is no where to be found. The tooth fairy gives two dollars if you have the tooth but only one dollar if you loose the tooth.  That rule was thought up on the spur of the […]

The Right Thing to Do?

February 18th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Last week we took the BoyChild to see his pediatrician. His doctor is a not the kindly, older, skinny neck-tie wearing man I had for a doctor when I was a child. His doctor is a kind, hip, youngish man with a goatee. He wears sweater vests and blue jeans. We have changed the BoyChild’s […]
