I have solved a great mystery-one that has stumped mothers for eons. I know, who would have thought that I, a normal housewife from California, would have solved one of the greatest mysteries of all time? Um, OK. Maybe it’s not the greatest mystery. I mean, I haven’t found Jimmy Hoffa living next door. But [...]

You’ll have to excuse me today. I am very grumpy. Really, really grumpy, as a matter of fact. The problem is, not only has the time change affected me (yes, I know it’s just an hour, but it hurts; it really hurts) and last night I didn’t get much sleep because I was sharing a [...]

This video is No-no Lulu and Kirby playing tetherball, something they do all the time (what can I say, they are strange little animals).

“Some days you are the statue, some days you are the pigeon.”
The meaning of life, according to me

Hello, it’s Kirby the dog. For those that don’t know me, I live with the Manic Motherhood family. I am not No-no Lulu. I am actually smart. Anyway, each year, I write a holiday blog for the female human.  You know, this is a lot harder to do than you’d think. I mean, it’s very [...]

Math Projects, Weekends and Wine Don’t Mix

Have you ever had the perfect weekend? One that started with sunshine and ended with sunshine? One where no mom yelled at her kid—or at least only yelled once? One where you relaxed, did some chores, hung out with friends and didn’t have a care in the world?
Yeah, me neither.
Oh, I’ve had weekends that started [...]
