Boobs; the Time I Removed Them

My kids love to poke my boobs. This might be the most annoying thing that's ever happened to me. Why just yesterday, my 4-yr-old head-butted my face, busted my lip, and made me see stars for a minute; it hurt, but it was less annoying than boob poking. The kids seem… Read full post »

Christmas Kittens and Bad Decisions

I made an impulsive and reckless decision over Christmas. And I can't blame it on the Egg Nog this time. But some, maybe most, of my decisions originate on the keen edge of emotion, appealing to logic only later, too late. It seems

The atomic sex bomb

Isn’t it too early to start talking about sex? I mean, my baby is only seven. She’s still a baby, for God’s sake. But one of her friends got wind of it somehow, so I suppose it’s just a matter of time.  I just never imagined this day would come. No/Read full post »

Dying with John

Dying with John was such an unbelievable honor that I feel I should write it down so that I can hold onto it forever. I didn’t die too, just John died, but I helped him. And no, I didn’t kill him either. Cancer killed him, but I helped him die
