The Giant Man-Baby Phenomenon

Posted By on Jan 3, 2012

Good God, people. Divorce is RAMPANT in my world the last few years. I am one of the happiest divorced people I know and even I’ll tell you this: Divorce sucks more than Jenna Jamison on a comeback tour. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. While there are many reasons for divorce, I keep noticing one all-too-common scenario the past few years. I call it the Giant Man-Baby Phenomenon. Now I do not think all men are giant...

Dear Mom, If I can be half the mother you were/are to me, I’ll consider myself a raging success. Motherhood is not something I always wear like a second skin — unlike you, who has always been a natural momma, through and through. Here are some things you taught me: Take it one day at a time. Laugh at stuff. Be the life of the party sometimes. If your kid is having something at school, go. If one of your kids is pregnant,...

Right now I’m laying on bed with my head propped up on some pillows and my laptop perched right on top of the old ovaries.

I got my ass reamed tonight. The phone rang and by the time I hung it up 20 minutes later, my ear was chewed off and bleeding. There were a lot of nasty things said and the person on the other end of the line was mad, mad, mad at me. And I was mad, mad, mad right back, because I felt that she took some seriously low blows. I hung up the phone and was finishing cooking dinner, crying all the while (because I do that when I’m...

Get on the board

Posted By on Sep 12, 2010

It’s a rainy, quiet Sunday morning and I’m all cozied up in the camper with the kidsters at the shore. Stealing a quick few minutes to write before B wakes up (enjoying this time but really, really hoping that he’s not dead — he never sleeps this late). What a difference a year makes. That is quite an understatement. Last year around this time we  came here for a weekend on what was to be our last family trip...
