Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

I was headed to the laundry room to grab something while wearing just a T-shirt and a thong. I wasn’t aware that my son was following me until he said, “Mama, you forgot to put the back of your panties on.”

Beach Blues

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

We were at the beach when my son started complaining about burning under his swimsuit. With tears in his eyes, he yelled, “It feels like a Megaladon swam up my pinkle.”

Melting Away

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

I was playing with my 2-week-old son on his play mat when he started to spit up a little. My 4-year-old saw the white spit on his cheek and said to me, “Mom! The baby is melting!”

Losing Sleep

Monday, August 18th, 2014

After putting our daughters to bed one evening, my husband turned music on in the den. A little while later, my daughter came out of her bedroom and asked, “Can you turn that music down? It’s making me nocturnal.”

Crab Invasion

Monday, August 18th, 2014

My son came running into the room, yelling, “There are crabs upstairs!”

I replied, “You mean pretend crabs?”

He said, “No, real crabs!”  so I played along, acting nervous about the real crabs. Finally, he shouted, “Yeah, I’m pretending there are real crabs upstairs!”
