When Did the High School Prom Turn Into a Red Carpet Ready Event? By @OneFunnyMotha

When Did the High School Prom Turn Into a Red Carpet Ready Event?

I suppose turning proms into red carpet events follows naturally after the madness that is promposals. Perhaps I’m late to the whole prom game because I haven’t been prom dress shopping since my prom back in, well, a long time ago. But prom season is upon us. Moms of teenage girls across the land definitely … Continue reading When Did the High School Prom Turn Into a Red Carpet Ready Event?

What Every Mother Really Wants for Mother’s Day

To be childless. It’s that simple really. If she’s been with the kids 24/7 for the past 2,190 days, give her a day off. Allow her one day of peace and quiet. She deserves it, and really it's not all that much to ask. Don’t bother with the flowers or the perfume or the heart-shaped … Continue reading What Every Mother Really Wants for Mother’s Day

.5K Race for the Rest of Us in TX

This .5K Run is Exactly How Every Race Should Be

You may have already heard about the race "for the rest of us." It happened over the weekend in Boerne, TX, but it's just too great to let go without comment. The good people of Boerne came up with the only race that makes any kind of sense, a .5K one. You read that right. PIONT … Continue reading This .5K Run is Exactly How Every Race Should Be

Christmas Narwhal

The Biblical Story of Jesus and the Christmas Narwhal

Okay, so maybe there is no biblical story of Jesus and the Christmas Narwhal, but there should be because the undertaking to procure a Christmas Narwhal is of biblical proportions. It all started out one night in Bethlehem. Actually, it all started out one night in Target. That's not true either. It all started out, … Continue reading The Biblical Story of Jesus and the Christmas Narwhal

Facebook Battles

As you may or may not be aware, I got into a little Facebook Battle the other day with a follower of my page. It was over an article I posted about a super-fan of Taylor Swift (maybe it was this follower) who posted a photo of the celebrity on Twitter (a rather bad one, … Continue reading Facebook Battles

25 Gifts My Kid Won't be Getting for Christmas This Year (Or Ever). She only has herself to blame. She wrote a crazy Christmas List and Santa don't play that.

25 Gifts My Kid Won’t be Getting for Christmas This Year (Or Ever)

Kids can be a little crazy. And Christmastime brings out the craziest of their tendencies. They think sky's the limit when it comes to their Christmas list. They're sure Santa has deep pockets.  Well, I had to put a stop to that. Pronto. I mean I don't mind them asking for some fantasy items, but when their … Continue reading 25 Gifts My Kid Won’t be Getting for Christmas This Year (Or Ever)

Sleepaway Camp Saga Continued Continued

This weekend I made another gruesome discovery. I was at the beach with my family, and after a day of sun and sand, I returned to the hotel to take a shower. I collected all my toiletries to bring into the bathroom, and it was then that I opened the soap case I'd previously packed … Continue reading Sleepaway Camp Saga Continued Continued

When you send your kid to sleepaway camp, and he returns without any of his clothes. By @OneFunnyMotha

Sleepaway Camp Saga Continued

We never did hear from Crazy while he was at sleep away camp, but when I went to the camp to pick him up at the end of the two weeks, he was in fact still alive and quite happy. We loaded up his stuff and drove home with him telling me about all the … Continue reading Sleepaway Camp Saga Continued

When your kid goes MIA at Summer Sleepaway Camp

MIA at Summer Sleepaway Camp

So we sent Crazy to sleep-away camp a little over a week ago, and we've been without communication ever since. The kids weren't allowed to bring their cell phones, which I wholeheartedly endorsed and which enticed me to send him in the first place, but I figured during the two-weeks' time he was away he'd … Continue reading MIA at Summer Sleepaway Camp
