The Uncool Mom

I wear my uncoolness like a badge of honor. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear Huey Lewis wrote “Hip To Be Square” bout lil ol me. Why am I uncool? Ohhh…let me count the ways! I AM UNCOOL BECAUSE: *I will NOT let my 6 year-old play bloody/graphic videos…

“The Tracker”

They say parents need eyes in the back of their heads. This has never has this been more true than with our youngest. Our last born, forever “the baby”, and full blown into her Toddler Years, she is 30 pounds of piss in vinegar. She’s like the ocean…you never want…

Flashback: The Lettuce Chronicles

I was taking a quick stroll down my blog’s memory lane today and came across this post I wrote early on in my blogging adventure. I had to giggle because, almost a year later, I find myself right back in this same predicament. So just for craps and giggles, I…

Call Wild Kingdom! We may have….Squabbits!!

King Daddy called me the other day at work, giggling. “There’s been a squirrel and rabbit playing together in the yard for the last 15 minutes”, he reported. “They really seem to like each other” I press for more details. “Well” King Daddy replies, “they chase each other round-and-the garden….

Farmer FranticMommy

If you think this is going ot be post about gardening…you are sorely mistaken. In the Kingdom of Tired, I have a notorius black thumb. We plant a garden every year, but I let hubby rule over THAT. I can grow a mean lettuce row (read the lettuce pusher here)…

All Or Nothing Mentality

I read the BEST newsletter the other day. Now, all of those who know me, know I have very limited time to work on my hopes, dreams, and goals (and my beloved blogging)so if I am going to sit and read something, it better improve my noggin. There’s this great…

59 Minutes and 59 Seconds….

By now, some of you may have noticed that I write a new post only about once every three days. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say…ohh…no-no-no! I may be a lot of things, but short on words is never one of them! The thing I am “short…

Dear Feet

Dear Feet,Why, oh why, hast thou betrayed me? You were like a part of me..oh wait..you ARE a part of me and something is strangely amiss. I know I should not have ignored you those long winter months when you were jammed into socks, more socks, and big stinky snow…

Dear Mom (In-Law) Warning: Soggy Keyboard Alert

Dear Mom (in-Law) This June 4 marked the 6 months passing of your passing and the 8 month passing of Dad. I just thought I’d jot a quick note and let you know how things are going. We still miss you very, very very, much. It’s getting easier, but we…

Whatchu say?

Maybe it’s just me.. (oh yeah, it IS me) but people in my life sure talk weird. At the Kingdom of Tired, we sometimes talk like a Minnesotan version of the Teletubbies. Quirky toddler words have become every day speech. I need to clean up my act. People are starting…

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s…Container Man!!

Day #4 of my Spring Cleaning Party and I am starting to get concerned about my spousal unit. I think he may…dare I say it?..have a..*gasp*..CONTAINER FETISH. Don’t laugh (ok, go ahead and laugh a little)….it’s a serious problem that is spiraling out of control. My concern escalated when I…
