High Times

I dated a pothead in high school.  Actually, that’s not entirely true.  I dated several potheads.  And was best friends with one back then, too.  And lived with a few in college. (Is ‘pothead’ an offensive term? Sure hope not.) And yet, I was never a big fan. My husband and best friend are always [...]

I’m Just Glad They Didn’t Start With the ‘Yo Mama’s…’

Oh, hey…whatcha doing over there, Cahlitos?  I thought you did ‘Big Boy Workbooks’?  All I see is fruit. They are fruit kebabs, Xavi.  I am doing patterns, see?  And honestly,  I’m not sure I like your tone. Do you see what I deal with on a daily basis?  I ask one teeny tiny little question [...]

Because I Would Totally Get in if the Wahbulance Actually Showed Up

Today’s feeling: OVERWHELMED. Brought to you by, well…by lots of little things combined, I suppose. Disclaimer:  I know:  Super blessed.  Lucky woman. Life is good.  Could be way, way worse. Yada yada yada. Still, we all have craptastic days, right? Fortunately, I have lots of outlets and emotional support. I can share my emotions on [...]

Dragons, Urine, Courtney Stodden…Yeah, One of Those Non Sequitor Posts

I hated living in New York when we first moved here.  Despised. Could have had something to do with being pregnant while dragging a 2-year-old up and down three flights of stairs every day.  Possibly. But whatever the reason, I took awhile to adjust. However, I finally realized that I kind of had to make [...]

Things That Make Me Feel Lucky (Hint: Dads)

I have actually written recently about my observations of the bond between my husband and his boys.  About what kind of father my kids have.  About the love I see the three of them have for each other. So, for Father’s Day, I figured I would ask the boys what they love most about their [...]

What Two Looks Like: A Visual Documention of Our Life

For any visual readers out there, I wanted to show you what my day to day life looks like.  I should thank my hysterical, energetic, creative and charming son, Xavi, without whom, this post would not have been possible. Without further ado, here is what the following activities look like in my house: This is [...]

Superpower Uterus

Mommy, where are my rain boots? On the bottom rung of your shoe cart. They aren’t there. {I walk back upstairs and take them off of the bottom rung of the shoe cart and hand them to Carlitos.} ……………………………………………. Annie, we are out of milk. No, we aren’t.  It’s on the top shelf in the [...]

Water Falls

Since blogging always sends some (vaguely) related song pulsing through my head on repeat, I have to use restraint to not always use that song as my post title.  Can you guess what the actual song running through my head is?  Maybe by the end of the post… Wednesday was a day.  A DAY.  That [...]

The DAMN! Is So HOT Right Now (Get it? No? Well, HOT DAMN!, Figure It Out.)

It has been an intense week.  Admittedly ‘First World Problems’ kind of intense, but still… We finalized Carlitos’ kindergarten for next year (figuring out a school for your child in NYC is no small feat…yes, even a public one), made the final decision about moving in June (nope), found out we need new tenants for [...]

Sesame Kale and Mexican Bean Salad Tostadas

You know when it’s May and you’re just ho-humming along, trying to get to summer time because you are all excited about summer weekend trips and day trips and ice cream trucks?  Like, you’re just dealing with the rain and the Sesame Street/Diego/Super Why! trifecta and the dumping of arts and crafts rather than the [...]
