2 Year old Honey Badger

Ah the terrific twos. Something we didn’t really appreciate so much when we had a two year old and an infant. It seems the differences between my first born and my second are so much more apparent with a 3 year old and a 2 year old. We fondly call our 2 year old Honey Badger since at 2 year old, Honey Badger doesn’t give a shit. 3 year old: […]


Before I had kids, I never thought

That I would cheer for someone when they used the potty and that they would return the favor when they insisted on being present every – single – time –  I used the bathroom. That I would have entire conversations perched on the tub with someone while they pooped (and not have had alcohol been involved) That I would have to ask someone not to stick ping pong balls in my bra.

It's a Good Thing

I’ve noticed lately that raising a toddler is sort of like living with that creepy kid from the old Twilight Zone show that could wish people into the cornfield.

In fact with summer storms and the heat, it becomes our version of winter.  So after going through stacks of art supplies and still having a energetic (and now rainbow colored) toddler, I thought that this Wii […]
