Bubble Tennis

Nico and Gabriel preparing to play bubble tennis, a game they invented. Note the goggles and kazoos to spice things up. (Will try and post again soon. We’ve been inundated with copious amounts of projectile vomiting around here lately. Not mine.  Check back soon.)

Oh, the R Word

The other day, I read an article that made me stop and think (ha! actually think! good one, Tanja!).  Even more exciting than that, it inspired me to, gasp, do the suggested exercises. Which is pretty impressive, considering the snail’s pace I’m moving at these days. Subtitled “The traits you dislike (and admire) in others […]

The Daily Drive-by

Lately, I find myself wishing I could hire someone to take care of us for a couple of weeks.  Nothing too crazy, just someone to cook, clean, do our laundry and maybe even wrangle the kids for an entire weekend so I can finally catch up on some sleep.  You know, the kind of thing […]

How to Make Your Wife Happy in Flight

Lately, I’ve been trying to be nicer to Ken.  I even took his car through a car wash (see “What’s with the Car?” below).  But  yesterday, my hubby truly outdid me. He let me nap on the airplane. That’s right.  Is this better than the Mile High club, or what? I mean, seriously, how often […]

Good Cop, Bad Cop

It’s no secret that I’m the bad cop in our family, the one who’s always trying to keep some sort of order in the house, make sure the kids don’t kill each other, etc.  In fact, I come from a family of bad cops; I’m pretty sure it’s in our DNA.  But it’s definitely not […]

The Myth of the Multitasking Husband

My husband is an accomplished multi-tasker—at work.  When he’s working, he’s able to juggle 396 projects (with 396 projects’ worth of conference calls and email) with a steady hand.  But as soon as he’s done with work, this ability instantly disappears.  Ask him to carry on a conversation while he’s loading the dishwasher or watching […]
