What? No Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed?

That’s right.  My boys did not wake up early to make me breakfast in bed.  Or coffee.  The little guys did not get out of bed until 10:00.  Lazy critters.

And guess what?  It was great!

No loud yelling and fights.  No loud Guitar Hero marathons.  No screams from Boy 2 as Boy 1 intentionally pushes his buttons.  The silence was bliss.  And the coffee I made was perfect.

And then it didn’t hurt that they were so chagrined for sleeping in, that they jumped to do whatever I said the rest of the day.  Loved it!  Hope all the other mums out there had a great Mother’s Day as well.


Why brain-to-mouth filters are good…

My phone rings last night and the caller ID displays my sister’s name. Being the loving sister that I am, I answer with a “Waaaaasssssuuuuuuup, BEEEEEYOOOOOTCH?”.

Just to hear my four-yr-old nephew holler back, “WWWWWHHHHHAAAAAAAT YOU SAAAAAAY???”


As We Change

When I received an invitation in the mail to join the AARP, I really thought it was a one-off.  I chuckled and promptly tossed it in the trash.

And then.  I get the most amazing ‘mature woman’ catalogue ever (with the possible exception of the International Male catalogue).  It’s called “As We Change” and I have to tell you, it has provided me with endless hours of amusement.  I think I’ve showed it to my boyfriend three times already.  The bathing suits are awesome and I really could dig all the clothing with disguised elastic panels.  Someday.  For now though, I think I may try this one:


Because the after picture is SO much better than the before!  Who wouldn’t want the sisters spread-eagled?
