Summertime

Memorial Day always seems to be the first weekend of summer, even though the Oldest Kidlet still has a couple weeks left of his school year. And ours was packed. There was a graduation party for Brother-in-law’s girlfriend. TheBoy and I went to a Dodgers game. And yesterday, the boys went across the street and

Boy Scouts decision – a win for the LGBT community?

If you’ve been following the news, you probably heard that the Boy Scouts decided to allow gay children into the organization. Yay, right? It’s still not enough for me to let my boys join.

My children are too much like me!

Hey! Listen! Every day, I share weird anecdotes and comments about the kidlets being geeklings. They really do take after me, in that they love video games, Star Wars, comic book characters (though in their animated adventures), and Ninja Turtles! But they also get just as obsessed about things as I do. (Whitney get obsessed?

Who are you? Deep down.

In my vlog, I mentioned that I’d been freaking out (about a lot of things, including freaking out). One of the ones I didn’t mention was the whole freakout that started when I posted this ridiculous GIF. Which I should point out I made because I was bored and because I’d been joking with S
