Snowpocalypse 2012

Well, the world did not end on December 21, 2012, as some believed the Mayans had predicted it would. But a few days later, it sort of felt like it did. Arkansans were all a buzz on Twitter and Facebook about the possibility of a white Christmas; and, rightfully so, …

Kidcation 2012

It should probably be called “momcation” but kidcation is what I used last year, and I’m nothing if not consistent. So the kids left yesterday with Pepa to travel back to Alabama to stay with Mema for their annual visit. This time for two weeks. All three kids gone for …

Crazy Vacation Utterances

Last week we vacationed at Gulf Shores for the week with Pepa.  It was a long, fun week filled with pool trips, beach outings and LOTS of seafood. Over the course of the week, in my state of sheer exhaustion from chasing kids in the sun, I may have said …

My Kid Got Kicked Out of Daycare

Ok, not really.  He only got suspended.  Yeah, only.  The dreadful day was last Thursday, when I got the call that our 3-year-old, Wonder Boy (as in I wonder if he’ll be the death of me), was in the daycare director’s office and needed to be picked up.  When I …

My little aspiring author

The Girl brought home a book she put together at school.  It’s a story she wrote and “illiastrated” about her Pepa. She was very proud of having done everything except the laminating, so I’ll be the proud mama and share: http://w723.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http%3A%2F%2Fw723.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fww236%2Fstephhwilliams%2FBlog-DO+NOT+DELETE%2Fslideshow+post+tommys+story+may+2010%2Fc072843c.pbw

Wonder Boy … the Bully???

By the time I’m writing this it’s pretty much moot, which, despite the fact that it’s a reminder that I’m neglecting the blog, really is a good thing.  You see, before Thanksgiving, we were having a bit of a problem with Wonder Boy at daycare.  Okay, that’s an understatement.  Our …

Escapades at the Children’s Hospital

Okay, so this one starts way back.  In a nutshell, my 7-year-old’s got high cholesterol.  Seems weird but it’s true.  We discovered that Boy Genius’ lousy cholesterol (that’s LDL for you science types) was higher than the average bear’s back when he was about 2.  A few years before, Pepa, who …
