Something really weird happened to me today. My kids and I are on vacation. I know, shocker. Everyone else takes a vacation and there are photos and stories and Instagrams and Snapchats and canceled plans - "sorry, going to be in Cabo that week!" I take a vacation and everyone acts like I've gone on… Continue reading Yes, I Am Allowed To Take a Vacation. So Are My Kids.
So I mentioned the other day that we are on vacation. Specifically, we are visiting family in Central Oregon. This will be the longest visit we have ever made here. In the past, we've come up for two or three days at a time. This time we made it a ten day jaunt; and let… Continue reading I’m Good On the Vacation Now

Just because I happen to live in… Continue reading From California

I don't have arthritis (just yet). And my days are not defined by bowel movements (at least not mine).… Continue reading STFU Fridays: “Only Old Ladies Craft”
I always think it's funny when people act like things won't change a single bit once they have kids. You hear these yupster couples, talking at dinner parties over sushi and flippant conversation that they will be different when they have kids. Life won't change for them. Vacations will still be all about wine tasting… Continue reading Vacation After Kids
