I Miss You My Rich & Creamy Friend

My dear friend...I miss you so...I just wanted to let you know.
I didn't mean for that to be a poem, I'm just really missing my friend Venti Decaf Mocha today.

P.S. I gave up Starbucks for Lent.

Batter Up!

Last night my Patrick had his first ever t-ball game. This was a huge moment for us--he's been waiting and waiting for this day. He was so excited and let me just tell you 4 & 5 year old t-ball has got to the be the cutest and funniest thing EVER! You'll have to put up with me over the next 2 1/2 months as I document this journey.

Patrick in the official St. Mary's Cubs uniform.

That for sure is a home run!

Playing first base (that's WM--the first base coach. The coaches are on the field with the team who is fielding, too).

Is This What's Important

Spring Break if officially over...I dropped off Katie at school this morning and we were instantly back into our routine. I loved spring break, we had a great week! But as you can see I didn't even look at this ol blog during spring break. But, now that we back into the swing of things, I'm going to try my best to get back to regular blogging. So here we go.

Not to be a Debbie Downer on a Monday morning, but I gotta get this one off my chest. Recently these two magazines arrived in our mailbox. I don't normally read either of these (I prefer to read my InStyle and Runners World magazines), but look at the front covers of these magazines, I couldn't help but read the article coinciding with the covers.

Good grief--where are our priorities and morals, people? I know the world isn't all sunshine and butterflies, but really...there's an "adultery marketplace?" And what about those athletes who we all think are so great, who have criminal backgrounds. If they weren't athletes I bet you'd just think they were punk kids who are trouble. But if they are an athlete, oh by all means, give them a second chance. Maybe it's those non-athletes that need the second chance.

Well, well, well....I'll jump off my soap box since I could go on and on. But what do you think of these things? What are you doing to teach your kids to be honest and moral citizens of our world when they are bombarded with this kind of thing day after day? I'd like to hear.

Have a nice Monday!

Get the Sillies Out!

If you're a parent I hope you'll find this funny. As a now-parent and former-journalist I find it hilarious. But what I find funny, a lot of people don't.

So, here ya go...enjoy Katie Couric gettin' her sillies out.
