So at dinner tonight, the oldest daughter (the artist formally known as "The Little One") asks us to PLEASE, never, EVER buy Oreos again because she has no willpower and 2 Oreos are 140 calories. All I kept thinking was, "Who the hell bought Oreos and how the hell did I miss them??"

It is hard to believe that so much time has passed that now your "Little One" is at the stage where caloric worries beseige her! I still have the two "youngest" at home while they're finishing school (OMG, it pains me to even say that word when they're ADULTS now). The girl, led by the advice of the eldest sister, has taken to keeping HER groceries, dorm-like, in her room so as not to have to share with the thief, heretofore known as her brother. I sometimes find the dog sniffing around on her carpet licking up crumbs. The giveaway is the wrappers in the trash. To which I say; "Honey, I get the hiding the food. But you might wanna take out your trash every once in awhile so your brother doesn't know you're hoarding food. If you don't, he'll be rummaging in your room." Next thing you know, she'll be hiring a locksmith to put a lock on her door. Happy New Year, C.

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
