Dude! It's not just a shirt... it's a lifestyle.

Is it just me, or is it hard to find cute clothes for little boys?

Because I find tons of clothes that tease me into thinking I want another girl, but then my teenage daughter enters the room and reminds me why perhaps I ought not to. I'm not sure if it's the eye rolling or the fact that someday I'm going to have to accept the fact that she's going to have sex. Either way, it's way too much to think about with a little girl. I know. It's sexist. Although, to be fair I don't plan on high five-ing my son when he decides to knock boots.

So guess who gets excited when she finds cute things to force her son to wear? This girl!

Can I just say I absolutely adore the label? "Uncommonly Sweet..."

The t-shirt fabric is heavy, thick, durable! No flimsy t's for this boy.

Embracing his Dude Pride!

I am *so* hoping she does a "punk" version.


Totally cute shirt! I sit home and pray everytime The Boy goes on a date with The Girlfried. I think Husband has *THE TALK* with The Boy every Tuesday, just to be safe....You worry just as much with boys as you do girls.

My son is 16.

I don't know what clothing manufacture's think kids should or would like, let alone the mom or dad who buys them. I guess when Ryan was young I did shop through Land's End and also I looked out for play clothes later at Target.

And teens...oh my...Ryan dislikes shopping and I (how lucky) get to bring stuff home for him. I just do basics and if he needs to get more dressed up then I will have to drag him to a store. I guess I am lucky he is does not have a girlfriend. I too do not want to think about that..but the "talks" have gone on and will continue.

Dude! I totally need that shirt for both of my boys. And one that says awesome for the 19mth old because that is his favorite word...

My only saving grace for cute boys clothes are Granimals stuff at Wal-Mart. Only things I can ever find that aren't plastered with cartoon characters or sports stuff (I have this thing about advertising to kids or deciding what they like before they decide for themselves...)

The House that God Built

in·stan·ta·ne·ous /ˌinstənˈtānēəs/ adjective 1. occurring or done in an instant or instantly.

The thing is, she died so sudden.
I didn't have the chance to plead with God, to make all the irrational promises. If he would just let her be okay.... I would start taking better care of my health. I would be nicer to the neighbor that drove me crazy. I would always let someone else go in front of me at Walmart no matter how long the line was. I wouldn't complain. Ever. I would volunteer at the Homeless Shelter. I would clean up after pigs. I would clip the toenails of the elderly. I would do anything and everything He would ask me to do....
There is a box on her death certificate that captures the amount of time between the initial injury and the time of death. It reads "seconds." I wish it read "instantaneous" because she deserves a clever word like that.
Fast forward five years.... definitely taking MUCH longer than "…

Seeing Avery All Grown Up

One day I'll tell you about the freezing cold we left and the heavy bags we lugged, full of supplies and medicines. I'll tell you about arriving in Port au Prince and walking across a cracked concrete parking lot to board an old school bus with a flat tire. How the heat was suffocating after months of below zero Wisconsin winter weather, how the people crowded and walked too close to moving traffic as we searched for a tire shop that was barely more than a couple men sitting on overturned 5-gallon buckets on the side of the road next to a pile of old tires, everything covered in dirt.

I'll tell you about waiting on the bus while they removed the tire and I'll recall the loud explosion that rocked the bus and scared the life out of me and how I was relieved to learn it was just the tire blowing after being filled too far. (They didn't have any gauges.) And then I'll tell you about the fear I felt when I realized we didn't have a tire and we were stuck on th…

When Your Imagined Life is Nothing Like This One

There were so many ways I imagined my adult life would be....THIS is not one of them.
I posted that on my Facebook wall last night. It might have been seen as funny except my choice of hashtags gave me away:
treading water getting nowhere piles of disappointment not many successes worn out and exhausted out of options

I always imagined my life would be thrilling. Full of exciting adventures and people from all over the world. I would dine at Ethiopian, Thai, and Indian restaurants. I would write books, teach English, coach forensics and direct the play. My husband would be charming and funny and not care about gender roles when it came to household chores. He would beg for at least six kids and I would fall in love with him all over again each time I caught him giving good life advice.
I would take photographs and travel the world documenting the people I came across. I would adopt a sibling group of three or maybe four and work on foster care policies because the ones we have aren't work…
