You know those times when you know you’re being a crap parent and you think, well, whatever, surely she won’t notice! She’s too young for it to REALLY matter!? I can just modify my own behaviour next week/year/month, sometime when it really has an impact! And then in an instant, all that stuff you’ve been [...]

The powers-that-be at Sesame Street have been denying for years that Bert and Ernie are, you know, a couple – those separate beds should be the giveaway, no? – but here’s a thought: just because they’re not a couple doesn’t mean that one or the other of them isn’t gay, right? Which means that this [...]

Bad Moms Love The Darned Things Kids Say

By on October 22, 2010

Last night, Emilia and I were discussing raccoons. “Raccoons are nocturnal,” I said. “That means, they usually only come out at night.” Emilia thought about that. “Like skunks?” “Yep. Skunks are nocturnal, too.” “And bats!” “That’s right!” “And Daddy!” “Daddy?” “Because Daddy works at night. You always say, Daddy works so late, we only see [...]

Drive-By Bad: Google Has Its Own Take On Bad Mothers

By on October 4, 2010

Mark this down as just one more reason to not refer to yourself as a MILF. online essay writer (I actually love that ‘MILF’ is right up there on the Google auto-search blacklist with ‘nipples’ and ’4chan’ and pegged as more potentially disturbing than ‘tushy’ or ‘dirty pillows’. Google GETS IT.)

I LOVE a good children’s book. Years before I ever had kids, or a husband, I would buy my favorites knowing that one day, my little people would need some good bedtime stories. Luckily, my children share my love of books and reading. We read together all the time, share stories every night and it’s [...]

Dr. Seuss: Stories Behind the Stories

By on August 9, 2010

My husband and I both grew up reading Dr. Seuss books, a tradition we’ve carried on with our kids – our bookshelves hold several Dr. Seuss titles. The kids love it when we read them Fox in Socks (though it’s all I can do to get? halfway through it) and Green Eggs and Ham; ever [...]

Bad Photos of the Week: Long Live Education!

By on July 21, 2010

Being a teacher is a demanding job, but it does have its perks – one of them being, at times, grading papers. It’s time consuming, sure, but every once and a while a real gem comes along – an unintentionally funny drawing or spelling error, or a really, really wrong answer – that makes up [...]

Teen Slang Decoded

By on July 1, 2010

Are you up on your slang? Do you speak the language of today’s youth? I was at a concert with my (much) younger brother and some of his friends a while ago when I realized that I probably wasn’t as up-to-date on my slang as I prided myself to be. While we waited for the [...]

He came home with everything on the list (except the wine… whassup with that, baby?), and then some. As it turned out, while he was paying, our boy pocketed a $10 Bell [...]

Yes, 'Awesomeness' is a word and that fact will become glaringly obvious once you set your eyes upon this alphabet of coolness. It has everything from Aztecs in Atomic Armour Attacking Anomalous Amphibians to ZZ Top Zapping Zombies and everything in between. So if you're going to run ABC's with your kid, why not do [...]
