What I Did Over Summer Vacation

Published on September 9, 2015

Tweet In two days the Critter will have been back to school for an entire month, yet in my mind I cannot end summer until after Labor Day. We had exactly two months of summer this year and it just was not enough! It seems that it only just started, and now I’m reflecting upon […]

Published on March 23, 2013

Published on April 6, 2012

Tweet I was feeling a bit guilty for leaving the Perfect Husband and the Critter home to attend the premiere of Mirror Mirror with my two main gays, it being a “family” movie and all. A ski trip for my hubs and kidlet had been postponed, and my plus two had already been invited. Truth […]

Peter Pan returns with Jake and the Neverland Pirates

Published on February 8, 2012

Tweet The Critter and I had a discussion a couple of weeks ago that made me realize that although he has watched Jake and the Neverland Pirates since it premiered, he doesn’t know who Peter Pan is. He challenged me on my opinion that Peter Pan is the boss of Neverland, thinking that Jake is […]
