Care.com Doesn’t Care at All

Everyone, I cannot tell you how stunned and disappointed I am with Care.com. If someone had told me that I would be so mistreated by an organization with “care” in its name, I wouldn’t have believed it. Let me tell you what happened. In May, my husband and I hired a Care.com housekeeper with high hopes, though […]

Combating Genderism over Ice Cream

This afternoon, while AdoringHusband was indulging his man cold, I decided to take Zizi to the movies. She’s not yet at the point where she will watch a non-animated feature in the theater, so I decided on Puss in Boots, in IMAX 3D. We had a really good time together after the mother with the […]

What Do Normals Do?

The really cool and fun thing about blogging about yourself is that no matter how out there or different you think your experiences may be, you can usually find another traveler who has also journeyed along your particular offshoot path. My doppelganger is my fellow blogger-doc-mom Kayla. She was quick to let me know that […]

Being Normal

Last Sunday was such a beautiful day. Clear skies, great temperatures. Just gorgeous. Now had I followed my usual habits that day, I would have slept as late as the kid would have allowed, rolled around in my jammies for too long, and then start trying to balance the work that I need to do […]

Lucky Duck

Sometimes the people you think you know end up surprising you…and not always in a good way. Even with long-time friendships, there can be facets people reveal that can both stun and sadden you. To be clear, I understand completely that one needs to accept his/her friends as they are, good, bad or in between. […]

My Bucket Is Empty

The things kids say. We parents tend to talk about this a lot. Mispronounced words, crazy statements, things that just make you want to wet your pants in uncontrolled laughter when you hear them. You know the drill. Zara has had some fairly humorous examples in the past that I’ve shared before. Yet there are […]

It’s Barbie’s Fault

It all started because of that damned Barbie. Seriously. Way back in the early fall, I gave the kidlet a toy catalog to look at. Normally when I did this, the catalog would register as much importance to her as my having given her a wet sock. But alas, turning 3 does seem to make a kid […]

Zizi & The Hula Hoop

Hi Friends, I know you need more blog writing from me than just intros to my photos, but I’m still hard at work editing client photos at night and trying to keep up with my day job during the sunlight hours. And then there’s the spending enough time with the kidlet part of the equation […]

First Haircut

Up until recently, I’d not seen a reason to cut Zizi’s hair. Her curly tresses were delightful, even though the twice daily combing was not the most fun for either of us. Yet now at 3, when wet her hair reached the top of her butt-butt. That was fine for braids, but not so fine […]

Lelli Kelly Fail!

I’m a bit tweaked right now. And before I get into it, let me say that I’m glad that my brother is currently not speaking to me, otherwise I know he’d have to attack me again for “thinking too much.” I’m happy that I don’t have that devaluation from my family to deal with as […]
