Miss T in 1997 and 2007

I ran across these two photos completely randomly last night. This was the first time I had seen them within a short enough time frame to realize the similarity. I put them side by side and couldn’t believe it. I guess the more things change, the more they really DO stay the same!!!

I ran across this tonight when I was looking for something else. This is one of my very most FAVORITE pictures of Miss ~T~.

I never get any work done when she’s home sick from school. Yesterday, ~T~ (who’s now known as "Miss ~T~" btw) stayed home from school with some sort of stomach thing. She was miserable all day, which meant I pretty much didn’t hear anything from her. Today is a different story. She’s on the mend […]

Foolishness in Missouri

This is ridiculous. Black Jack, Missouri has a city ordinance that prohibits more than three people from living together in the same house if they are unrelated by blood, marriage or adoption. Wait… did I read that right? I did. WTF??? From Reuters: Olivia Shelltrack and Fondray Loving and their children moved from Minnesota to […]

My mini me is in Europe for the long weekend (with her dad) and she feels a LOT further away than when she just went uptown to spend time with him. This isn’t QUITE the furthest we’ve ever been from each other though. According to Google Earth (which totally rocks, btw), she is 3,317.72 miles […]

Along Those Lines (re: fake authority)

This whole fake firefighter halloween rape thing has me going crazy. I usually tell my mini me about these sort of things, because I want her to be aware and be careful. With this one, I’m not sure how to approach it. I want her to be careful, but I’ve always told her she can […]

A friend just called me and told me about this story. Sometimes, I want to lock my daughter in her room and never let her out. There seems to be more evil in the world than I can ever warn her about. Hoax Caller Fools Fast Food Asst. Managers into Strip Searching Employees

I meant to write about this over a week ago. Time seems to race away in front of me. I can never catch up. T had a sleepover. I’m sure that is not an extraordinary thing for the mom of a preteen girl to write, BUT: Our apartment is REALLY small. I’m not great with […]

Girl Rituals

I recently initiated my daughter into an age old female tradition. Ask any woman in the modern world what you do when you are (1) starting your period AND (2) angry at and/or missing a significant other. 99% of them will tell you to do what T and I did a few days ago. (Yes, […]

T is home! T is home! My daughter just got back from a six week vacation. I got a text from a friend as we were leaving the airport last night. It said “U r mommyrific again! Say hi for me.” (And yes, Snickers went insane when he saw her. I think he thought she […]
