The Great School Experiment

Okay, it’s day 3 for Punksin and day 2 for Pudding and I already know that there is no way my kids are staying in this school permanently. The question is not IF they will come out, but WHEN. Thus far, it seems…tolerable. If things continue as they ARE, I will pull them out at […]

A New Chapter

Punksin started school yesterday. Public school. Third grade. Pudding starts tomorrow. Same school. Kindergarten. I’ve already decided that I am going to be keeping notes on the things Punksin tells me (and Pudding, possibly), and they will either become fodder for a book, or at very least, a long list of reasons that I will […]

Day 4…ish, and Maybe We’re Not Homeschooling Anymore?

I think it’s day 4. Look, I’m trying to survive here. Counting is just really not an integral part of my so-called rehab program. Today was…not too bad. But it was interesting. Punksin asked me to play with her. As usual, I was in the middle of 5 million things, none of which ever seem […]

The Fork in the Fallopian Tubes

I went in for my annual GYN appointment the other day. I’m trying out a new practice. It’s a weird move for me because I LOVE LOVE LOVE my former doctor, but she’s in Connecticut, which means every 6 months or so I’m driving through 3 states to see her. It’s getting to be a […]

Day 2

Well, here we are on the morning of Day 2. The good news is that I woke up without a headache, which is a huge surprise because the BAD news is that I slept like total and complete shit. Can you explain to me how it is that I can take TWO ibuprofen PM – […]

Rough Seas Ahead

Okay, full disclosure here: the post in which I said that it was time to bid Lexapro adieu, I wrote that yesterday, but didn’t publish it until today. Meaning that last night was the first night in which I reduced my dosage of Lexapro. Meaning that today was the first day of dealing with it. […]

Things I Learned Over the Weekend

A sick 5-year old is VERY VERY MISERABLE. A sick 5-year old often results in a sick mommy. Chuck E. Cheese sucks ass even more than I thought: their latest TV ads promote birthdays as being “funner” at Chuck E. Cheese. FUNNER? REALLY? Thank GOD I have taught my kids to hate you and your […]

The Not-So-Sad Truth

Pudding comes up to me yesterday. “Can I have a soda?” “No.” This despite the fact that there is Fanta Orange, Dr. Pepper, Coke, Vanilla Coke, Ginger Ale, and Dr. Pepper Cherry (awesome!) staring him in the face from the fridge. I buy soda. I just very very rarely allow my kids to ingest it. […]

Spoiled Rotten

My kids are, I have to say, very well-behaved. Temper tantrums do not happen in this house. They are not acceptable. Kicking and screaming and acting up, especially in public, but frankly, ANYWHERE, do not happen. Yelling at your parents? Hell no. Most of the shitty behavior you see kids on TV directing towards their […]

The Disintegration of 15 Days

It wasn’t too long ago that I was writing here about looking forward to my 15 days of bliss, remember? 15 days during which the kids would be at camp, the hubby would be at work, and I would finally, oh finally, have some wee bit of time…to myself. Not insane amounts of time, mind […]
