I am an artist & teacher with a ❤ for visual expression, educational methodology, homesteading, & Jesus. My geek-love is The Joshua and we have three peanut-butters: Caleb, Jack, & Louritta.


Mother’s Law


MOTHER’S LAW: If you set an important document in plain view, it *will* get colored on.

  • Prepping for K/1st Grade! http://t.co/uVl02QH33y 17:06:28, 2013-05-29
  • My 16-month-old little girl points at Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins and says “Mama.” I must be doing something right in this parenting gig! 15:59:27, 2013-05-30
  • Caleb, of his own volition, made a model of what it’d look like if someone didn’t go poop or potty for 3 days. Yeah. It looked like that. 11:40:47, 2013-05-31
  • Some nursery rhymes are a bit too close to home. “Old woman who lived in a shoe” & “Snakes & snails & puppy dogs’ tails,” I’m looking @ you. 16:12:43, 2013-05-31

My Tweets for the week of 2013-04-29

  • ME: If you drink your milk, you'll get big and strong like Superman!
    JACK: I don't want to be like Superman, I want to be like Grandpa! 14:10:48, 2013-05-02
  • Also, JACK: "I have blonde hair, Caleb has brown hair, and my dad has no hair… just lots of pokes on his head." 14:12:07, 2013-05-02
  • Caleb freaked.
    JACK, (rubbing his back): "You *can* calm down. Take a deep breath. Breathe with me. In. Out. Good."
    CALEB: "Thanks, Bud." 15:34:47, 2013-05-04

  • Thankful for Jack today. "Mom, you have a nice butt! It's big and squishy, just like an elephant!" Thanks, buddy. I feel better now. 10:36:46, 2013-04-24
  • CALEB: Give me flying rocket blasters! If you do, I *might* explode, if you don't, I *will* explode. Ask yourself, which is more inevitable? 10:40:55, 2013-04-24
  • JACK: (loudly) "If you don't give Caleb rocket blasters, you will be devoid of all value!" (whispers) "Caleb told me to say that." 12:50:31, 2013-04-24
  • WHY PARENTING IS AWESOME: Jack cries that he wants to go upstairs. I bring him up. He immediately cries that he doesn't want to be upstairs. 11:41:25, 2013-04-25
  • CALEB + SUGARY CEREAL: "You shouldn't feed this to us. It won't help us grow big and strong. I'd expect Dad to feed it to us, but not you." 17:28:29, 2013-04-25
