Zou Bisou Bi-Zhu Zhu

So Audrey came upon my iPhone, which was logged into eBay, which is linked up to my PayPal account, which is linked to my credit card, and could have bought anything her little heart desired.

What did she choose? (HINT: The photo to the left ain't there for nuttin'.) How did I discover it? Why did it almost create an international incident?

M is for the Mac 'n Cheese You Gave Me

A little late, but this was among the Mother's Day gifts in Audrey's overstuffed backpack last Friday. Over the years, I've gotten a lot of stuff with hand and/or foot prints, painted flowerpots, and various cards or artwork featuring her photo. What was in your kid's backpack?

Am I not funny? Am I not a clown
Do I not make you laugh?

My husband is still bitching about this one. COOK???

So adamant about the cooking that 
she registered a write-in vote.

Awwww....I do know how to make mac and cheese.

Great. I could really use a new car too.

You Can't Spell Mommy Wars Without Mommy

You've probably heard enough about the Mommy Wars by now, and read way too many posts about that stupid Time magazine cover story. Well, too bad because here's one more. Hey, at least I didn't use that odious cover photo on my post.

Anyhoo, my latest article on the Patch talks about my experiences in the trenches of this war before Audrey was diagnosed. After she was diagnosed, I had better things to do than compete with the women in my mothers' group over milestones that Audrey wasn't going to be meeting until their kids were well into their Ivy League-prep years.
