Mom, wife, teacher, gluten destroyer

True bliss for a mom

and guilt free tv

Nerf gun battle — July 21, 2015

Nerf gun battle

You want more Nerf guns?

I want your room all cleaned up.

So HERE’S your Nerf war.

I don’t want to work today — July 20, 2015

I don’t want to work today

I’ll do anything

and everything to avoid

finishing my work

I love you — July 16, 2015

I love you

My world lights up when

you smile, and my heart is glad

to see you again

Sunburn —


We spread sunscreen on

kid’s legs, arms, feet, ears, nose, back…

Forgot their shoulders

Coffee for a crisis

Your morning crisis

means I need a second cup

of coffee … with rum

Cat attack at night —

Cat attack at night

Peaceful sleep shattered

when the cat wages war

on my deadly toes

sniff, sniff, sniff — July 10, 2015

sniff, sniff, sniff

Don’t glare at me as

you crack open the window.

It came from the dog

Temptation — July 9, 2015


I can’t withstand the

siren call of my children’s

secret candy stash
