I HAD DREAMS ABOUT DRAGONS LAST NIGHT, YOU GUYS. And it’s about GD EFFING TIME. I watched GOT twice last night (well, one and a half times but I’m counting watching the battle scene four times and Arya’s fun little dance with Brenna twice as one whole show). That’s how insanely good (and way overdue) […]

Over the weekend we shipped the boys up to my parents house. A trip to their house is my kids’ idea of paradise. First of all, around here we refer to it as “the compound” because it’s not just their house, it’s three combined plots of land where my auntie M, my parents and my […]

Um, I don’t know if you guys heard but Game of Thrones started back up this week. It’s the first half of the last season (because of course HBO is going to turn the last season into two halves that will probably span over four years – PURELY GUESSING) and EVERYONE, myself included, has been […]

Broomies. Broomates. Cohabitating brothers. However you want to you say it, the boys are in it. Ever since the 4th of July weekend Abbott had been sneaking out of his room to sleep with Matty. There was just no getting around it so we decided to shack them up and turn Bot’s room into a […]
