#NotMeToo

October 19, 2017

I’m finding the #MeToo movement quite fascinating. This stemmed from some sleazy Hollywood scum who believed money and power could grant him the right to do some horrifying things to women.

I Took a Stand Today

October 09, 2017

Facebook is rife with people taking stands on things. I try to hang in the middle, not having any real strong opinions on things, giving people the benefit of the doubt.

The first week of kindergarten is off to a somewhat hilarious start. On Day 2, M announced that she had a boyfriend. I asked his name. She didn’t know. Real Estate Dad said, “Yep, you are just like your mother. She didn’t know any of their names either.” M said she wanted to wear her fancy purple […]

Forgive Me, I’ve Been Remiss

August 20, 2017

It’s been months I realize, but this summer we scored the most excellent Summer Nanny! Truthfully, I robbed her from her place of business which also happened to be Chubs’s longtime tumble gym where we’re not allowed to poach teachers but hell. I couldn’t resist.
