A blog about parenting, education, and general family life.

Things I’ve had to say:

  • “When playing witch should you actually dump an entire cup of water on your babysitter?”
  • “Would you like some paper so your math isn’t all over your arm?”
  • “No, I’m sorry. We are NOT making a sky diving cat video.”
  •  “While cucumber can make a nice mask for your eyes, salami does not.”

Things my kids have said:

  • “Mom, does genetics mean I can’t be very smart?”
  • “Hurricanes are a lot like snakes. They are both interesting and fascinating… right until they try to kill you!”
  • “I want smart but dumb parents. Smart enough to keep their job but dumb enough to be bad parents who don’t care what I do.”
