What is it with young kids and being naked? I mean, seriously. My daughter, bless her soul, has a modicum of decency in her. She’ll run from the bathroom to the bedroom (or vice versa depending on if bath is about to be performed or has just been completed). You don’t see her naked anywhere […]

I got the kids two aviator bears as souvenirs during our trip. They were a gift from one of our meeting hosts, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. Mr. Man just snuggles his. Sweetness, however, stripped hers naked. It was a little disconcerting to discover the aviator bear laying in her bed wearing nothing but his silk tie […]

There’s a reason my nickname for my brother vacillates between “Plunger Face” and “Stinky Pantleg,” both names we called each other when we were kids, and neither of us remember where they came from. While over during Sweetness’s birthday party last month, my brother noticed Mr. Man needed to be changed. He offered to do […]

So far Sweetness has mastered grabbing her full diaper and announcing she wants to sit on the potty. After months […]

Well, it finally happened. Since I first saw those two lines on that first pregnancy test I knew I needed to start paying attention to what I said as it would take some discipline to start working a few choice words out of my vocabulary. I’d gotten pretty good, but there were times when I […]

I’m standing in the bedroom folding laundry on the bed. Sweetness has wandered into the bathroom where hubby is in the shower (we lost the ability to have any privacy when she master the door handle about a month ago).
