Do You Poop?

My latest book is now available on Amazon. This is my first children's book--all about the joys of potty training. Thank you to Izzy Bean for her wonderful illustrations.

When he is older, Jack will probably be horrified that I used his name in the book. I questioned whether or not I should. But, right now he loves it. He is in love with the book, wants it read to him frequently, and he enjoys reading it to himself. It makes me happy to have completed the project, and to see how happy the book has made him.

June: A Month in Photos

I had a birthday, and ended the night karaoking to "Ice Ice Baby." No one clapped.

I rode on a little train, ten times in a row. Jack loves the train.

We visited Big Brutus. I'm still not sure what Big Brutus is, even though I read   multiple brochures. It is...BIG.

These are humans inside Brutus' shovel.

I went roller skating. "Ice Ice Baby" was playing. No one asked me to couple skate.

Happy 4th of July! I suggest buying 100 boxes of snakes, stacking the little black pellets into a nice pile, and lighting it. BIG snake.

Movable Art

It's been almost a year since we stayed at 21c Museum Hotel in Bentonville, Arkansas. The first floor of the hotel is an art museum and hip restaurant. One of the exhibits consists of movable art, green penguins, to be exact. The penguins are plastic and approximately four feet tall. I think you're supposed to move the penguins from exhibit room to exhibit room, and maybe the elevator. We brought a penguin upstairs to our room.

First he relieved himself.
Then he robbed the minibar and got totally wasted.

Finally, fed up, we said, "Take your umbrella and get out of here!"

The next morning we found multiple green penguins in the hallway. Other people had abused penguins. We were unoriginal.

I can't wait to go back.

Week In Photos

 I filled my car full of free hamsters, and then I drove to a field and set them free. Free the hamsters.

 Jack turned three and had a Curious George party.

 Pretty junker, somewhere Oklahoma.

Weekend Photos

Little House on the Prairie. Laura Ingalls Wilder lived here. This is going to be great!

This sod house is awesome. Wait, is it my nap time? ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Saddle up the horses Pa, ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Post Office, Little House on the Prairie. This is when they came and told us that the area was under a Tornado Watch and that we should leave. No, no, no. We are not taking naps and we are not leaving the premises.

Peru, Kansas cemetery. I've added filter ghosts.

Go To The Gym

I ordered Jack a pillowcase for his room. It was supposed to be a print of an owl. The universe had other plans. I was excited to open it when it arrived, and disappointed to see that instead of an owl I had a pillowcase screaming at me to, "GO TO THE GYM!"

I felt verbally assaulted by this pillowcase. I'd like to meet the person who actually ordered this pillowcase and wanted to display it in their home. No I wouldn't. We wouldn't be friends.

The owl pillow eventually arrived and all was right with the world, no gym visits required.
