I hate mosquitoes. With a passion. But really…who doesn’t? I know I am not alone. I really don’t think that there are people who really enjoy endlessly scratching and thus causing bleeding welts that nicely transform to acne looking scars all their legs during prime shorts season. Wait – that doesn’t happen to you? Consider […]

How much did you pay for college? I (ok, my loans and mom) paid $20,000 for 4 years, tuition only, at a Big Ten state college. At that time the school was hard to get into. Hard, meaning one had to test into it to be accepted. Prospective students required a high SAT score and […]

But not because I m worried about the things he could get into…Dave and I actually hired a baby proofer […]

In getting ready this morning, I looked down at my hands and noticed that they were a glowing shade of white. Now I’m usually pale (ok, more like chalk) but it’s summer- so I’m a little more vanilla now. So What the hell, why my hands white? I figured it maybe was the lighting, so […]

Little Johnny had his 9-month check up the other day. As usual, the nurse measured his weight, length, and head circumference. No shocker here, he’s big. But this time, he posted a stat unlike before: 98 percentile in all three categories. I waited for a trophy. It never came. He’s measured big before. High 80s. […]
