Little Kidlet and the Case of Shyness

The Oldest Kidlet is outgoing. Plunk him in a new situation and he’ll make the most of it, and probably come out of it with a friend for life. The Little Kidlet, on the other hand is shy. He just takes a long time to warm up to people. This summer, we’re doing our library’s

What you don’t expect.

Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet. The Kidlets’ school year ended shortly after Memorial Day, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to make summer vacation work with my work from home job. It hasn’t exactly been easy. The first couple days were fantastic- the Kidlets made sure that I had a solid 4

Midnight Escapades

I realize that this title sounds far more glamorous and exciting than the truth. This is a post about kids getting sick in the middle of the night. So, proceed with caution. My glasses were broken to begin with. I am blind as a bat without them, but have plenty of contacts – so I

What about the kidlets?

I’ve been looking at my recent posts, and it’s all about me and very little about the kidlets. So I thought I’d share some updates. They’re great. I do have a problem in that I post all of the funny stuff to Twitter as it happens and forget that I have a blog. So maybe

Everyday magic.

This weekend, TheBoy and I went to Days of the Wolf, a Teen Wolf convention. But that isn’t what that post is about.  (I’ll post about that on Wed) We surprised the Kidlets with a trip to Disneyland and a stay last night in a hotel. (We haven’t left yet, right now we’re waiting for

In which I know it all.

Once upon a time, three years ago, to be precise. The Oldest Kidlet was in preschool and was obsessed with pirates. He dressed like a pirate for Halloween (in a costume sewn by yours truly). When asked how he knew as much as he did, he told his friends that I’d taught him. Because I

Everyone Hail to to the Pumpkin Song

(I’m 90% sure I’ve already used ‘This is Halloween’ as a post title) I really don’t have much to say, other than I’m in the midst of a lot of things. With Halloween on Thursday, I’ve got character parades to prepare for and a class Halloween Party to supervise. I love the way that the

[Vlog] LK Takes Over the Vlog

This week, I have a very special guest (okay, he’s the only special guest I’ve had on the vlog so far) – the Little Kidlet! I’ll be honest, we had a blast filming this one. Yes, the Little Kidlet watches videos on YouTube. Last year’s Christmas List? He and the Oldest Kidlet put them together

Tuesdays, man.

I know that the Hitchhiker’s Guide quote is about not being able to get the hang of Thursdays, but Tuesdays are killer around here. This morning, TheBoy and I got into a fight. He’s my soulmate, but occasionally, he can be an asshole. On occasion, I can be an dick. It’s a fact. (I’m sure

This is the end.

The End of Summer, that is. But Whitney, you ask. How could it possibly be the end of summer? Well, the Kidlets start school this week, so… end of summer. To commemorate it, we got a hotel room down in Anaheim, and spent the weekend there. It was a relaxed weekend. The Oldest Kidlet (and
