Confessions of a PlayGroup Hater

I haven’t been to an official “playgroup” in years but now I have a toddler again and since he’s now the same age Asher was when I was taking him to playgroups, I’m having flashbacks.  I don’t think I’ll be doing it this time around and here’s why.  I confess.  I hated playgroup.

I went to playgroup because I was searching for something. But playgroup was not it.

It was lame-o. It was boring. It didn’t make me feel better about my child-centered life. It made me feel worse.

The kids are back in school today, FINALLY, so next week I’ll at last have a chance to write something new for you.  In the meantime, here’s one of my more popular posts about my husband and his annoying household habits.  Enjoy – and add your  thoughts in the comments!


husbandannoying2I’m not sure what happens to a man’s listening skills between the time you’re dating and the time you’ve been married for a few years but I know that my hubs used to listen to me closely when we were dating and then intentionally repeat things I’d said back to me randomly weeks later just to prove it.

Things are, ahem, a little different now.

I say things 1001 times and still — DOES NOT COMPUTE.

Lately, I’ve resorted to making signs because I’m so tired of repeating myself.

As much shit as I give him about not listening to me anymore, I will say this.

The things I used to talk about were probably a lot more interesting than the things I talk about now. [Read more...]

The P Word

A friend recently mentioned that her daughter had started to say the P word and that made me remember this little gem so I thought I’d reshare. And just for your own reference, ignoring it did eventually work. But it took a while. Read on.
thePwordI’ve always known the day would come when my kid started to talk, in a loud voice, about the things he observed around him, whether appropriate or not. When you have a kid, you know it’s coming eventually and you cringe thinking about it, even when all he or she can say is goo-goo and ga-ga. [Read more...]

Confessions of a Horrible Homemaker


Share on Facebook144Pin on Pinterest0Tweet about this on Twitter5Share on Google+0Share on StumbleUpon0

I’m a pretty good mother, despite my constant complaints of how crazy it is mothering two insane hooligans.  What?!!  It. Is. Chaos. But still – I put everything I have into it and then some.  Which is why, when people say, “How are you?” I usually say, “Tired.”

But the rest of the crap involved in being a homemaker?  I SUCK at it.

I’m horrible at cleaning the house.  Also, I don’t give a crap.

Confessions of a Horrible Homemaker - Toulouse & TonicLaundry is a whole other thing altogether.  I do it – only because if I don’t, I won’t be able to get the kids out of the house [Read more...]
