  • Lost & Found

    Jude was in bed for the night when my mom came over. She picked him out of the crib and we chatted while she was holding him. She put him down and continued to socialize. A lightbulb went off over Tamara’s head and she bolted for the back door, open since Jude was asleep. We […]

  • Caterpillars Are Gross

    These caterpillars are disgusting!  They poop a lot and their cage is full of poop!  At the beginning they were very cute and I loved them.  I even kissed their jar!  Now I would never kiss them.  I am surprised that they got so big.  Now that they are big I just hate looking at […]

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.
