  As you probably know, May is prom season, and because I have a teenage daughter and friends with teenagers, I’ve recently been re-educated on the pomp and circumstance surrounding this adolescence milestone — and you guys, what I’ve learned is terrifying.    I say “re-educated” because the only way prom in the year 2013 […]

This is the one where I tell you how I waited for three long, bitterly cold months to spend a week in the delicious warmth of the Arizona sunshine reuniting with family at my nephew’s wedding and sitting by the pool visiting with lifelong college friends and then got sick on the first day and […]

I know, I know. It’s Friday Favorites’ day, and you don’t see a list.  Don’t worry. Stay with me. Yesterday (as you and my 168 Facebook friends know) was my birthday. I may or may not have woken up like this… …only to be met with crickets.  And it was a fine day, as far […]

Someone needs to pull my mother card. Last night, Thing 2 came into my room and said with all the sarcasm I’ve taught her, “Well…that was a pret-ty exciting St. Patrick’s Day.” (To catch you up: She wore a green shirt. I got sick and almost passed out in Buffalo Wild Wings.) Me: I know. […]

I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus the past couple of weeks.  I’ve managed to post here and there, but nothing I can hang my hat on, so to speak. As you know, the Things are in The Secret Garden, and tonight, kids, is opening night. For the past 6 days Husband and I have […]

I know I’ve mentioned before that the Things are theatre kids. In fact, I wrote about the ups and downs of auditioning a few months ago when Thing 2 had just auditioned for Annie and for the first time experienced the heartaches of rejection (sort of). They live life with permanent stars in their eyes, dream of signing […]

  So as you know, Thing 1 turned 17 on Tuesday. Which got me thinking about a lot of things. Like how when you have babies everyone – everyone – who is older than you tells you how fast time will fly and you smile and nod but ignore them because you know for a […]

This weekend my little Thing 2 got her first taste of the highs and heartaches of showbiz. Before I tell you about that though, let me bring you up to speed. Since the time both of them could toddle, my girls have been living-room performers – dressing up, creating bizarre and hilarious characters, singing, dancing, […]
