being mom

i really can’t believe it’s come down to this.

THIS young man started HIGH SCHOOL this month. There's no other way to say it. I'm getting old. Since it's now my official job to highly embarrass him as greatly and as often as I can: I'm so stinking proud of him. He's doing so well, and he's so smart, and handsome (naturally). I look… Continue reading i really can’t believe it’s come down to this.

well, i did it. i was a big weepy mess, but i did it.

Before you ask, yes, this is about my beloved grandma. Last post about it, I promise. And also: family. And, being brave. My grandma's funeral was today. It was amazing to see everyone and hear all the ways she touched people's lives. I learned a bunch of things, actually, that I never knew about the… Continue reading well, i did it. i was a big weepy mess, but i did it.

throwback thursdays (vol. 4): on boogers. oh, and ovaries too

This is one of my favorites not because it's written exceptionally well (it's really not), but because every time I read it, I remember this conversation and how funny it was.

my mom. and a psa.

PSA As you may know, I've been spending time over the last several weeks moving my downloaded MySpaz blogs here, to my fabulous new blog site. What I didn't realize is that anyone subscribed to this blog is getting a notification every time I posted one, even though I thought I was being terribly clever in backdating… Continue reading my mom. and a psa.
