TALK (DIRTY) TO ME

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Well, then. Check me into the asylum friends, because um, I think this might be my parenting life, like, all of it. These are things that were actually uttered in my house this morning: "You are … Continue reading TALK (DIRTY) TO ME

NOT AFRAID

I'm not afraid.  “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?” I asked my classes that question this week during my lectures. Answers, not surprisingly, varied in egocentricity and depth. Some students wanted to marry celebrities, others to become rappers (to which I wished them the best of luck, really), but as … Continue reading NOT AFRAID

READY OR NOT

“What’s next Mom?” “Where are we going now?” “Who are we going to see?” “What are we going to do noooooowwwwww?” Sigh.

So. . . this just happened. I fell asleep in yoga yesterday. Three times. Three. During three different poses across about ten minutes. Not kind of asleep. Not dozing. ASLEEP. Hmmm. Universe dropping a little lesson on me, perhaps? Maybe. Potentially. Couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that I actually pulled an … Continue reading SLOW RIDE

I CRY

In case you didn’t notice, it’s almost commercial holiday season again. Oh boy.I went into CVS yesterday and saw the shelves laden with heart shaped merchandise (taaaaacccckkkkkyyyy) and enough pink and red crap to decorate the walls of a Victoria’s Secret superstore. To this rosy scene I had a threefold (and rather visceral, I may … Continue reading I CRY

SAY IT AIN’T SO

Remember those things you were “never” going to do? They are on the reverse side of the list of things you were “always” going to do. Not familiar with them? You might have either a) forgotten about them since they written on real paper as opposed to the back of receipt or your child's math … Continue reading SAY IT AIN’T SO
