My Bodyguard’s Assault Cannon Is Bigger Than Yours

My Bodyguard’s Assault Cannon Is Bigger Than Yours

This is Hunter.  He (well at least I think he’s a “he”) is from HALO and is my body guard this week. At 2 ½ inches tall, he’s the largest plastic body guard I’ve had.

Just Called To Say I Hate You

So, my neighbor come over and tells us, and by us I mean the Professor as I wasn’t home at the time, (because God was sparing the life of my neighbor that day) that the windows of one of their cars had been shot out by a pellet gun.  Normal, neighborly information, right?  Something bad happened.  Want to make sure you are aware so you can protect your loved ones and your property,

What My Dad Was REALLY Saying

What My Dad Was REALLY Saying
by Gina Valley

My dad is the sweetest man alive.

While I visited my parents this winter I needed to drive from their tiny mountain village to the closest big city to pick up The Professor from the airport.

My dad wanted to serve as my chauffeur, but that would have left my mom with no one to help her.

Do We HAVE To Have A Meeting For EVERYTHING?

So this woman says to me, “We get together to figure out more ways to have fun with our children.”

I was at one of my kids’ functions (why does “kids’ functions” make me immediately think of poop?) recently chatting with a woman I had met once or twice before at one of these things.

She was in a perfectly pressed,

I moved our pack’s craft table out of our family room and into our living room last month.  The Professor was thrilled.  It’s not that he doesn’t want our pack hanging out with him while he watches the Lakers;Humor Funny Parenting Moms Dads Kids children Family Life love caring Mother Location Disaster Area Craft Table Bedazzle Remote Draperies Curtains Drapes Rhinestones Finger Paint Light it’s that he doesn’t want our pack’s art supplies hanging out near the TV.

Toddlers VS Teens: Dance Off

Toddlers VS Teens: Dance Off
by Gina Valley

Toddlers and teens have a lot in common.  They both say silly things, and get cranky if you wake them too early.  Both have their own unique sense of style, and will take your makeup if you leave it out.  They also both have a tendency to mouth off and toss a tantrum when upset.  Yet, both have an amazing capacity to be gentle and kind when you least expect it.
