fire.fire.fire…

... You should have seen The Boy's face light up with joy when he found out he is going to be a Torch Acolyte. Then you should have seen his dejected scowl when he found out the "torches" weren't Flame Throwers. His lament ... "But mom! They aren't even torches at all! There are just like regular lanterns on poles. I thought I was gonna get to burn stuff. That was so misleading!" On the ride home he made me even prouder by declaring that he was "so going to write a blog post about this!" … [Read more...]

That’s right, Mr. Martini. There is an Easter Bunny…

... the post below was written under the heavy influence of NyQuil. I bet you didn't know it was even possible to hallucinate from consuming too much of that green liquid. Well, it is. And I did.

... I refer to my home as the Plague of Frogs. If you venture out at night you must watch your step. Nothing is grosser than stepping on a frog barefoot. Believe me, I know. It goes without saying that my property is infested with snakes as well which, for the most part, managed to keep to themselves... until now.I was greeted by an Eastern Kingsnake while taking out the trash. My son is outside right now peeing around the perimeter of the house. I doubt it will work but he was more than … [Read more...]

you can never have enough holy water…

... my wonderful son continues to be a model of piety. Every since he learned that Catholics can baptize people in extreme circumstances he has seen fit that every animal in our home be baptize. Even the neighbor's dog. And their ferret.When he ran out of animals he decided he needed to baptize the cats again, just in case. Because they're real sneaky. His words. I tried to explain to him that you only need to be baptized once. He was thoughtful for a moment but countered my catechism lesson … [Read more...]
