NEW DISCOVERY: 30 More Minutes of Super Mario Can Stop Chronic Nose Bleeds

Our 5-year-old vandal son suffers from nose bleeds.  Seriously, when the mucous membranes in this child’s nose are void of humidity, it’s like a scene from a Stephen King movie.  He’s actually getting a little more accustomed to the onset.  A few weeks ago if his nose started bleeding he would lose control of his bowels. Fun times. You can’t really blame him; it’s a significant amount of blood.  Once, my husband accidentally ran over a kitten in front of …

Fresh Hate and Jesus Fish

The way I see it, you do what ya gotta do. And I have tried them all. This year our daughter will graduate from college. She was Classically homeschooled from the 2nd grade through high school.

Goodbye, Cruel Summer... 6

Goodbye, Cruel Summer…

Goodbye, cruel summer.  You with your long days and sleepy vibe.  It has been good. I have a four-season soul.  But I live in a state with only two seasons; summer and winter. Summer takes up 80% of the year. But the real summer, the summer where the kids sleep in until 11 and there are no lesson plans, dance recitals or late-night basketball tournaments, and endless math facts and spelling lists – she’s the real deal.
