Malcom & Chris

By Karen Gordon Last week, I posted a question to my Facebook…just because. It read, ”If you could sit at the feet of anyone you admire or look up to either dead or alive, what three questions would you ask them?” A handful of responses trickled in, but one floored me. It was from my 25 year old son Malcolm (the subject of the question would have been his father, who passed away three years ago). Malcolm commented, “Why didn’t you come to any of my graduations? What really happened? Why weren’t you there when I was born or whenever...

The Elusive Elsa

By Paige Tucker Keeping track of all my stuff has always been a full-time job for me. I’m not the best at organization. At any given time, I’m likely missing at least three things. They usually turn up, but it sure is frustrating. Add my little Julia Reynolds to the mix, and I’m now responsible for keeping up with her (got that one down thank goodness!) and HER things. You know how that works. When they’re tiny, it’s about five million items out of necessity. And now at age three, it’s her treasures. To make life interesting, each new day...

A Pretty Strong Case of The Cooties

By Karen Gordon @SayWhatScooter: Mommy, what are cuties? Mommy: Cuties? @SayWhatScooter  Yeah, cuties. Mommy: They’re those cute little tangerines… really sweet, too. @SayWhatScooter: NNOOO (with sarcasm)… cuties are something that people get on their skin. Mommy: Say what? @SayWhatScooter: Mom, I’m talking about the disease – that people have on their skin. If you touch it, you’ll catch it and get sick. (pause) Mommy: Ohhhhh, you mean COOTIES! @SayWahtScooter: Yeah, cuties. Mommy: Ok. For the past two weeks, I’ve had a pretty strong case of THE COOTIES. It was some kind of upper respiratory, sore throat, nasty cough-ish sort of...

Hungry Hungry Toddler

By Paige Tucker My little one, now two and a half, has long put just about anything and everything in her mouth. Pacifiers, her fingers, her whole hands (while teething), stickers and a marble. Yep, you read that right, a marble. And there was one bright red marble she did not spit back out. One day, we were playing over at the home of one of Julia Reynolds’ best buddies, Kip, when they spotted Hungry Hungry Hippos on the dining room table. Remember that game? What a classic! It wasn’t Julia Reynolds’ first time seeing it. She’d played with the hippos before...

A Nugget from Scooter this Morning

By Karen Gordon Scoot: Mom, look under there (pointing to desk). Mommy: Under where? Scoot: Oooooh, you said underwear (laughing hysterically). My kids range in age from 26 to eight. We have a daughter Ryanne who is 26 and three sons Christopher, 26, Malcom, 25 and Scooter is my eight year old. I thought this last one would be easy. You know, we have adult children so we are experts at this. Right? But this guy came into this world seemingly prepared to give me a taste of my own medicine and it seems as if he conferred with...
