worth a thousand words

Something about little sayings on the backside of a newborn’s outfit is just unbearably cute, right? Parents, please take note: sayings on the backside of a 9-year-old girl’s pants are not cute. They are, in fact, likely to get her in trouble of one sort or another. There seems to be some general confusion about [...]

Q: Why couldn’t the kid pirate get into the movie? A: Because it was rated ARRRGHHHHH! (Sidenote: I actually told this joke while acting as the MC at an event in high school. Embarrassing.)

List Me

Meant like, “Beer me.”  As in, Please give me a beer.  So, basically, I was just trying to say ‘Please give me a list.’  “List me” is funnier , though…once you know what it means, anyway. And here is where I am going with this.  Wives, girlfriends, “lady friends,” anybody who would like a male [...]

worth a thousand words

In a nest at the Bronx Zoo. As Carlitos always says, “I love the Bronx!” What’s not to love?  The zoo, the botanical gardens, Little Italy, and $12 tips/manicures.  Hello!! I love the Bronx, too, Carlitos.  I love it, too.

Don’t Touch Me! No, Really. Don’t.

Yesterday I had my 6 week postpartum check up.  The truth is that I was excited to start exercising.  In fact, when I was scheduling the appointment a few weeks ago the receptionist kept trying to give me a date in June and I kept looking at the calendar and telling her that I was [...]

Fired Up!

So, I was going to write a different post tonight, but right now I am so fired up about something else that I kind of have to write about it instead. I just saw a piece on CBS 60 Minutes (online) about The SEED School, (which is largely funded by The SEED Foundation) where I [...]

Oh, Didn’t See You There!

The other day I caught myself burping John Xavier to the rhythm of a song.  Just to clarify, I was not burping the words ‘John Xavier’ to the rhythm of a song.  In fact, I can not actually burp…unless I am pregnant.  (Which makes it really funny to me any time I burp while pregnant, [...]

I like to call it “The Little Piece of Heaven List”

I am getting closer!  Closer to fulfilling my bucket list.  I don’t really mean like an “accomplish in my life” bucket list, but rather an “eat after having that baby” bucket list.  I also don’t really mean a bucket of food, per se…although that does actually exist.  No, really.  Bucket O’ Food.  Kind of gross [...]
