Should You Let Your Adult Children Move Back In?

    Okay, this is a tough one. I have always (since the kids started walking on their own) told the kids that when they hit 18, they’re out. They need to have a job, be in college or living with someone else, but they are out. Harsh? Maybe. I said this to them with… Continue reading Should You Let Your Adult Children Move Back In?

Too Much Pressure

So Big Daddy brought this huge poinsettia home last week and all I could think was, “OMG. Another living thing I have to keep alive.” I suck at plants, pets and people smaller than me.

DIY Man Tanks (Wife Beater)

So I was grabbing a meal from a fav restaurant last week when I noticed something odd. Well odd to me. A father and son were having lunch and the kid was back and forth from the play area.

My sugar level is so low I feel like I could pass out at any minute.  No. I don’t have diabetes and… Continue reading Confessions of a Cupcakeaholic

When Do They Go Back To School?

We are week 2 into summer and I’ve already had a nervous breakdown. How many more weeks till they go back to school? Don’t get me wrong. I love my kids. But they are hoarders in training. It’s like they spent time in a Military inspired boot camp that teaches teens to torture their moms… Continue reading When Do They Go Back To School?

Gorilla Wars 2016

So here is the video. Shot by a person at the zoo where a 4 year-old child fell into the enclosure of an endangered gorilla named Harambe. I warn you it’s pretty hard to watch especially if you’re a parent. This happened over the weekend at the Cincinnati Zoo. Can you even fathom this? I… Continue reading Gorilla Wars 2016
