[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

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

When plans fall apart.

Being a mother has become a lesson in flexibility. When I was younger, plans were plans. If they fell through, I would sulk. And now? Well, to me life is like the tide, things come and go and the shoreline of my life constantly changes. No, really. It sounds like one of those insane motivational

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?

Halloween costumes, Assemble.

I know. You’re thinking (especially if you watched yesterday’s Vlog) that I’ve lost my mind. Shortly after Halloween, the Little Kidlet and the Oldest Kidlet announced that this year they wanted to go as Boba Fett (LK) and a Stormtrooper (OK). Considering it’s my year to make costumes, I was already looking forward to the

Why, Ocarina of Time?

Ocarina of Time is probably one of my favorite video games, ever. There’s a great playability and a nice replay value. There are lots of little sidequests, and over a decade on, I’m still finding ways to improve. The reason I bought a 3DS was because I wanted the revamped version of Ocarina of Time.

The Mystery of the Blue X.

Saturday morning started like any other. I got up, stumbled downstairs, watched a little Supernatural while the kidlets screwed around on Facebook. We walked through the hallway about a dozen times, and that’s when we saw it. A big blue X on the wall. Either marker or watercolor. So I looked around for the Magic

Can’t Reach.

Back when the Oldest Kidlet was 5, he started to get a little lazy. He’d reach towards where ever his cup was and would say, “Can’t reach.” It sort of became a family catchphrase. TheBoy adopted it first, I jokingly used it with TheBoy… and to this day, I can still hear people say it.
