My husband has an STD (Shutting Things Deficiency)

The dishes piling up in the sink? It’s not my favorite but I can deal. Clothes piled near the hamper? Frustrating, but part of life. But the cabinet doors. I can’t. The drawers? No. WHY? Why can’t my husband close them? I will no longer suffer in silence. Here is a PSA for an STD […]

You down with ADD? Yeah, me too.

The Penn you see on this website, and in these videos, is the product of a very fun job.  It’s a job not too many people have, so every morning I wake up and count my lucky stars that I get to do this job. I think about all the crazy things that happen with […]

May is the new December | #Maycember

Penn’s secret talent revealed!

When I was in fourth grade, practicing diligently on my recorder, I heard my mother mutter “…… THE DEVIL’S FLUTE…” cover her ears and walk away. Now that I’m a mother, I get it. The sound of a plastic recorder being played by tiny, unskilled hands could be considered torture by some governments.  I mean, […]

Homework. It sucks.

And we made an instant parody. Which doesn’t suck. Homework. It’s a topic so draining I can’t even form words to write this post. But I will. Because, you know BLOGGING. Penn has this super cool party trick: he can write an original song or parody in just a few minutes. These super powers have […]

A Note in the Pocket | Undies on our head!

There are a few things I’m certain of in this life: Life is too short to spend it doing a job you don’t love. Luck is created by hard work. Chocolate cures most emotional distress If you’re able, you should help. Always. Sometimes helps comes in the form of something simple, like putting away the […]
