Published on September 16, 2016

Tweet We are already in school for a month, Labor Day has come and gone, but the fun memories linger on from what felt like a super lazy summer. I didn’t make The Critter do summer camp, but secretly made a pact with myself that we would do some fun, stealthily educational and creative things […]

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 June 18, 2015

Tweet Were you wondering why I was having lunch with William Shatner last week? Let me tell ya, he is an ICON. Not since I posted this picture of the lovely Dahm Triplets have I gotten such feedback! Funnily, the first thing people would say after “William Shatner? For real? Awesome!” would be “what are […]

Caitlyn with a “C”

Published on June 1, 2015

Tweet Wow, this is a game changer across all playing fields. As unfathomable this is even to a person like me who has always had friends and colleagues who challenge gender roles, I look at it as a mother.

Published on April 21, 2012

Tweet The HUB always has such fun launches to their programming. When I received the invitation to the “Bridle Party” for the My Little Pony Wedding, I immediately called my husband’s stand in (it’s STILL snowing in Mammoth, can you believe?) Barrie and asked if he wanted to escort myself and the Critter. Since he […]

Two Evil Queens + Mirror Mirror Premiere = Wicked Fun!

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 […]

PBS Press Tour and Meeting our Idols

Published on February 2, 2012

Tweet I always am thrilled to attend the biannual PBS Press Tour. You may have read this story about how they got me out of the “daughter doghouse” forever with the spectacular performance by her lifelong idol Tony Bennett, but there was so much more. I was fortunate to visit for a while with Lesli […]
