The cure for the down lows.

February 18, 2011

Do you know how to braid? Should I whiten my teeth, like, pretend you are looking at me, and I look like myself, only with whiter teeth, how do I look? Can I paint my toes hot pink in the winter, or is that like white after Labor Day? Andy, seriously, can you tell I’m […]

It’s Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2011

And you know what that means? Puppy love, of course. Also, awkward making out/possible sex in the car before we go in to relieve the sitter after sushi assuming we don’t fight over whose the better driver or over how much wine I drank, but yeah, also, puppy love! UPDATE FROM ANDY:  Brittany has already […]

So, what are you getting me for Christmas? Gigi. Um no, I got you Gigi already, no re-gifting. Well, what are you getting me? Jude, Wyatt and a gift certificate to Best Buy. I thought we couldn’t re-gift our kids to each other? I don’t remember ever officially giving them to you, but they play […]

4am.

August 11, 2010

In my experience, nothing extraordinary ever happens at 4am. When I was a teenager, it was sneaking back into my bedroom window before dawn, praying my mama wasn’t waiting in my room threatening to send me to a convent where they don’t allow push-up bras or wine coolers. In college, it meant drunk food at […]

Lambs.

July 16, 2010

I am really bad at explaining things to my children. Especially death. They are still waiting for my mom’s dog, Avery, to get back from the dog movie theater. How many times can a dog watch 17 Again? Lots. But, people are harder. Thankfully.  They haven’t lost anyone they were close to yet. I dread […]
