Free Lunch But Kids Pay

Free Lunch But Kids Pay

Many years ago, when The Boy was four, he went to Pre-K at a church as part of a Mother’s Day Out type program. We loved the program. I could walk my babies to school in our little red wagon. I’m all nostalgic just thinking about it. I can’t think of many things we didn’t […]

Sleepovers are the Pitts

Sleepovers are the Pitts

“Hey Mama, can SuchandSuch spend the night?” Ugh. First of all, if the question is asked in front of SuchandSuch, it’s an automatic no. I think that’s written in the parental code somewhere. Growing up, it was a total deal breaker. In the spirit of full disclosure, I didn’t have people spend the night a […]

Apparently, the U.S. Postal Service is on a hiring freeze. Couple that with an aging workforce with sick and personal days to use before retirement, and you’ve got a bunch of temporary workers wandering the streets with mail. I get it. Are the temps required to recognize numbers? I don’t mean to be a jerk. […]

Can you Email Wine?

Can you Email Wine?

For some reason, I’ve been inundated with customer service battles lately. Because of the ice storm, many of y’all have, too. It’s never fun. I’ve heard some pretty horrific stories about one of the big cable companies (starts with a C). We’re battling with the U.S. Postal Service again. In the grand scheme of this […]

It Could Always Be Worse

It Could Always Be Worse

The past two weeks are nothing but fog. Hazy. My calendar is somewhere. I’m sure appointments have been missed. If I didn’t show up for something, forgive me. I’ll make it up to you. It might help if you remind me what it was. I hate to even tell y’all everything that’s happened, because it […]

It isn’t really time for a 15 in 5 again. A) I’ve been told you people like them. B) I have only random thoughts this week. C) Our deadline was changed because of the impending weather, and I wasn’t prepared. Speaking of impending weather, a couple of weeks ago, I “wrote” that it didn’t snow. […]

Something for everyone during the Olympics

Something for everyone during the Olympics

The Olympics are starting this week. I love the Olympics. It’s especially helpful when the games are in a time zone opposite ours. There’s always something to watch — even in the middle of the night. If you don’t like sports, surely you can find something to entertain you. This isn’t to say that every […]

When your son puts on a suit for the first time, it’s a big deal. If you see him shaking the groom’s hand, congratulating him on such a lovely wedding, grab the tissues. Even though you okayed having her ears pierced, you’ll cry. For the moms out there who hate me for changing my “You […]

Laying Down the Law

Laying Down the Law

If I told you this story last week, I might not have seen the humor. My boy, my very passive, honest, kind boy, is learning his way. He’s figuring out how to, um, lie. Now, to be fair, the things he’s lying about aren’t that big of a deal. They aren’t a matter of life […]

A Comedy That’s Not So Funny

A Comedy That’s Not So Funny

I’m a prude, I guess. I feel like I’m relatively realistic, but I watched a show the other night that grossed me out. It wasn’t “Bizarre Foods,” “Intervention” or “Man vs. Food.” There weren’t any medical procedures or naked people camping. It was a sitcom. It’s called “Mom.” I’m not even sure which channel it […]
