TV networks, cut it out!

If you own a DVR, I’m sure you’ve run into this problem. You schedule out your shows, recording a couple shows in one hour- and you pull up your DVR screen later that night (or the next day) to discover that one of your shows didn’t record because one of the shows wasn’t just an

Like Sand through the Hourglass

No, I’m not talking about Days of Our Lives. But I am talking about time. First, this week flew by. I’ve had a lot of my to-do list, and unfortunately blogging fell to the wayside a bit. I’m not complaining about it being the weekend already, but it feels as though we skipped a day.

What did I do?

If you’re a regular here, you might notice I changed the title of this blog. American Whitney was fun (especially if you’re a fan of The Guess Who or Lenny Kravitz), but I figured I’d find something that explained just who I am in three words. Geek. Pirate. Mom. That’s me. The look of the

Ah, the innocence of youth.

A couple nights ago, we were watching The Muppets (one of their favorite movies now, I’m pleased to say) and the Little Kidlet ran off to grab a deck of cards from a drawer. The boys don’t play card games yet, but they do like throwing them around. In this case, the Little Kidlet started

New game!

Thanks to a little show called Pocoyo on Nick Jr, that’s what Little Kidlet shouts whenever he’s done with something. New game! At any rate, the Oldest Kidlet has a new game that he likes to play. He’ll walks around with a shoebox and a notebook. “Excuse me. Do I have a [insert name here]

Rainy day…

It’s raining! There’s something about rain that brings out the little kid in me. TheBoy was kind enough to stay up long enough for me to drop the Oldest Kidlet at school in the pouring rain, while he watched the Little Kidlet at home. There was just something about dealing with the rain, the cast

I did it!

I made a holiday meal that actually was served on time. Okay, I was 15 minutes late. But that has been the closest I’ve ever been to my announced meal time. So my time management skills are getting better. Easter is the only holiday that wasn’t spoken for when I married into this family. My

She’s So Vain, She Wrote a Post About It

Samantha Brick wrote a piece for the Daily Mail about how much women hate her because she’s beautiful. She wrote a previous piece for them about how she’s used sex appeal to get ahead. She writes very plainly about how baffled she is by how mean women are to her. She’s nice, she exercises and

Spring Break is a lie.

I’ve come to realize that Spring Break is a lie. Oh sure, I had Spring Break as a kid. I even went on Spring Break vacations in college. But now, I can say that as a mother… there is no such thing as Spring Break. At least the break part of it. The preschool and

Winning a Different Sort of Lottery.

Well, we didn’t win the MegaMillions. Nobody in my family did- but I think it’s because a certain someone in our family was hogging all the luck. I should backtrack a tiny bit. Friday afternoon began the same way it always does. I picked up the Oldest Kidlet from school, and he proudly showed me
