And (new) life goes on…

I made life. What have you done this year?

Just kidding. Well, sort of. I gave birth to my third (and last) ankle biter this past Saturday. Continue reading

Tales of dentist woe…

Posted in Doctors, Kids, Life In General on January 26, 2010 by 12gviolet

Today is our kids’ first visit to the dentist.

If you just got chills down your spine and actually felt sympathy for some random person over the Interwebz, congrats, you have kids. You’ve either taken those kids to the dentist (I’m so sorry) or you’ve contemplated it in horror, wondering just how long you can get away with not taking them. Possibly, you’re one of those people who was tortured by dentists as a kid, but you’re in the minority. Fact is, dentists rarely torture children without reason, and that reason is usually orthodontic procedures. Thankfully, my kids’ teeth are reasonably straight — thank you sweet baby jeebus — so I don’t really have to worry about this. Continue reading

Let’s be honest…

Posted in Kids, Kitchen Time, Life In General on January 21, 2010 by 12gviolet

My old blog was titled All Your Bread Are Belong To Us (gamer geeks will understand the reference) because I love to bake. If I had no children and a decent kitchen, I don’t think I’d ever stop baking. (Okay, maybe for House… but really, can you blame me?) But let’s be honest, here. Once you have kids, your life is no longer your own. There are brief periods of time when you delude yourself into believing you can do something else, too, while your munchkins actually entertain themselves for more than five seconds, but those are fleeting.

Or maybe it’s just those of us with devil children. It’s a toss up. Continue reading

Look! Shiny! And why people today suck ass…

Posted in Life In General, Rant on January 18, 2010 by 12gviolet

I used to blog at Blogger. If you’ve ever tried using Blogger, you’ll understand why I don’t anymore. If you haven’t, be very, very (very very very very) grateful. And if you, for some god awful, self-hating reason desire to read my past blog entries, go here. If you’ve already read them because you’re making the hop with me to my brand new shiny platform… I’m so sorry. Really.

I need to stop starting sentences with the word “if.”

Anyway! Now that we’ve gotten through the whole “Look at my pretty new awesomeness!” thing, I can get on to what I really want to talk about: why people today suck ass. I’m in a snarky mood, people. Be warned. You may very well be offended by what I’m about to write (type?) and though I was raised in true Southern girl niceness tradition, I really don’t give a flying fuck today. I will happily give you The Death Stare and cut you off at the knees with my kick ass Jedi mind powers. My grandmother would be appalled… but I think I’m okay with that, too. Continue reading
