I’ve been a sports fan for longer than I’ve been able to read. I still remember Saturday Mornings watching UNC Basketball with my dad. He was busy and it was the most time I spent with him all week, so they were very happy memories. I also remember my dad using it as a teaching tool. The coach […]

It’s finally happened. Our children asked questions about politics. “Mommy, if there is global warming, why is it so cold?” “Daddy, why do farts smell?” Every. Day. Every. Single. Day. Our kids come up with these questions that leave us just . . . amazed. Some questions are easily answered in a Google search, (Why […]

It’s hard to have sympathy for the “victims” of privacy invasion, considering they willingly signed up for a website that helps them commit adultery, but I don’t wish that kind of pain […]

Everything is a competition here – even the flu. Don’t get me wrong: Penn and I have a great marriage. But we bring out the best (read: competitive) side in each other. It’s more fun than it sounds. Trust me. We are each other’s main competition and biggest cheerleaders. Example: I encouraged Penn to take […]

We LOVE Saturday Night Live. LOVE. Obsessed. If we were only cool enough to stay awake for it we would have seen them spoof our video. THIS. MAKES. MY. LIFE. Except for the affair and sociopath children — this is pretty spot on.
