I am never bored….

Not true….I am actually bored quite often. My therapist Patricia “Pat” always tells me, “Bored is healthy, bored is good.” Bored is good for the boring. Pft!

One of my friends asked me the other day,”Karie, is your house always this perfect? All the time? With Twins? And you were going to school? And you work out of the house? And, and and…..” I felt so embarrassed, I mean I really do try to let my house go. To let the dishes [...]

Moms, grandmoms, Great-grandmoms, just about any mom you can think of asks this question when they see a young child and or baby:Is he/she good? I mean seriously? What kind of question is that? When anyone asks me that I truly think about messing with them a little and telling them how awful my child [...]
