Daddy, My Pillow Smells

This post is several years old but in honor of the author's birthday, I am re-posting it today. 
God bless you, sir. You are a fine American.

This post was actually not written for us. It was written up as Facebook note by a friend of mine. Since he and his wife are my very close buddies, I asked them and THEN I TOTALLY PINCHED IT. 

OK. I asked first. You see, my friend Beatrice told me the story of what happened and I nearly peed myself. So then I asked if I could write it up for MommyLand and they were all "It's already written!" And when I read the story on her Facebook page, it was even funnier than when his wife told it to me.

If you're drinking anything, put it down.  Otherwise, you may spray your computer. 

Enjoy! xo, Lydia

Horrifying Conversations with Mini: The Spot

Welcome to this installment of Horrifying Conversations with Mini, where I'm about to share possibly the most horrifying thing she's ever said. Seriously. Worse than what she told people at Disney World or the joke about the baby duck.

The Pre-Vacation To Do List

Photo by: Photostock
My husband asked me a very reasonable question while we were getting ready to leave on our summer vacation last week. That question was: “Why are you so grouchy right now?” 

The fact that he asked me that question means that he has no real concept of what it takes to get a family of 5 ready for a week’s vacation. I’m aware of the fact that my grouchiness is an unreasonable response to a decidedly first world problem. But I thought I’d share my to do list anyway in the hopes that at least one of you out there will let me know that it's not just me.

Things That Make Me Happy

Sunsets on Lake Michigan. They're awesome. 
The internet has been a sad and shitty place for the past couple of days. Perhaps because increasingly the world is a sad and shitty place, filled with things I can't make sense of.  I'm not just talking about celebrities, though there's that too. It's everything. It's all of it. 

It's hurting my heart and I thought it might be hurting yours, too. So I decided to make a list of things that make me happy. There's a lot of beauty and kindness and hilarity in the world and sometimes I need to be reminded of that. If you want, you can add stuff to this list, too.
