A Tale of Two Sweets

We took the kids for ice cream this afternoon. Oddly, Rollie wanted a Sprite instead. Todd and I decided we’d all share a bigass rice krispie treat, too. Tiller went for the ice cream (birthday cake) and a handful of rice krispie treat, too. Sometimes it was hard for her to decide which to bite […]

Morning Mayhem

So, I’m not getting a ton of my work done this morning, but boy are the kids having fun. Two dogs, two five-year-olds, and three, count them, three, three-year-olds, all over at the house playing. Funny how my kids are so much more well-behaved when they have friends over.

Flowers, Sculpture, Fountains, Friends

I took the kids to the Atlanta Botanical Garden with some friends on Saturday. It was hot as Hades, although the Savannahians claimed I don’t know what hot is. Whatevs. . . . Although I had both kids (Todd had a shoot on Saturday), I did get a chance to chat with Jason and Alison […]

What Are People For?

Dash spent the night with us last night, while Lisa went to our friend Alexis’ wedding to create a horrendous Sunday morning hangover with old friends. Dash and the kids were up early this morning. I let Todd sleep in, as he had partied with neighbors until the wee hours of the morning. So, i […]

According to Rollie

If a car has a spoiler, it is a racecar. Cars without spoilers are “Rookies.” I guess this is a Cars (the movie) reference. I don’t know why it makes me laugh so hard. Now, whenever I am driving around, I think to myself, “what a rookie” when I see cars without spoilers.

God, I Needed That

Rollie just walked in the house. I was bracing for “I’m hungry,” “Tiller destroyed your flowers!” or something along those lines. I was not prepared for: “Mama, do you want me to show you how to do the Macarena? Gracie knows how to do the Macarena and she taught me.” [Stifling a laugh.] “Uh, Yeah!” […]

Dogwood Girl and The Black Hearts

Rollie and Tiller were acting up in the bathtub tonight. I got them out immediately (they usually get to play for a while) and Rollie stood shivering in his towel, lower lip quivering, and told me, “You don’t love me at all! You never loved me! You don’t have a red heart, you have a […]

Vampires In School, Part II

Update: The vampire at the school has a name and a girlfriend. His name is Sylar. He lives under the school. Yesterday, at nap time, the vampire was lying next to Rollie and he bit him on the wrist. But Rollie didn’t feel it, because he doesn’t see or feel or hear the vampire; only […]
