My son made his confirmation three years ago. I remember it like it was yesterday. It was the first time he’d really ever been asked to dress up. We had a bit of a difference of opinion on clothes. He wore a Confirmation gown, but obviously needed to wear something underneath. I told him he [...]
A couple of days ago I got the second tattoo I had wanted. This one is for my oldest son. We all love music in this house, especially him. And like music notes developing into a song, he is developing into his own person. Like music notes in a song and forming a great masterpiece, [...]
A few years back we decided to get TJ a stereo for his room. Being the man he is, RB went out on his own and picked it up. What I didn’t know until after it had been brought home and installed was that it was a powerful unit. Powerful as in loud. I told [...]

My son TJ went to the mall today with his girlfriend and her friend. The girls had wanted to go there to go shopping for bathing suits. He came home later in the evening, in an excellent mood. He said he had a good time at the mall. He’d spent $4 on a bracelet, exactly [...]
Here’s something that I don’t think I’ve never mentioned. RB has a unibrow. Not only that, directly out of the middle of it grows a long hair, which we call his feeler because it waves around like a tentacle. It’s nothing a few hair removal wax strips wouldn’t take care of. But, it doesn’t bother him [...]
My son TJ has been thinking about blogging so I’m letting him guest post a couple of times to see if he likes it. Please say hi to him. ***** Me and my friends went for a bike ride to the local skate park. When we got there we decided that we were going to [...]
My parents and LB3 were over this morning. My Dad is the go to man in my life. My husband is not exceptionally handy so there are some things I wouldn’t even want him to try. I mentioned to Dad that there was no heat in TJ’s room. I knew what the problem was there [...]
TJ’s been getting into drawing again lately. He used to draw all the time as a young child and stopped for a while. He’s given me several beautifully done freehand drawings. In order to keep them I told him I was going to scan them into the computer. He seemed pleased and left the room [...]
DEAL ALERT – Rock Band Wireless Guitar for Xbox 360 with BONUS 2 Games – AC/DC Live Rock Band and Rock Revolution
My son is a video game nut. He love video games. His favorites are the Rock Band and Guitar Hero games. I’m not exaggerating when I say that he’s really good at them. He’s been known to draw a crowd when he plays in the store. He even won a local contest, beating out kids [...]
GIFT IDEA – SILVER STAR CLOTHING TJ turned 14 last weekend. TJ has never been what I would call a “clothes horse”. When he was between about 10 and 12 he loved to wear sweat pants. Nothing special, just inexpensive sweats like you get in a department store. He also liked to wear hoodies, the [...]
Have you ever had a conversation with one of your children that just struck you as funny? We had one of these yesterday. TJ – I need to speak to you about my battery needs. me – Your what? TJ – My battery needs. me (after I stop giggling) – What battery needs? TJ – [...]
My son TJ went on his first camping trip this weekend. He returned home early this evening looking tired. I was in another room when he came in. He headed straight for his room to check his cell phone so I didn’t get a look at him. It was only after he checked his cell [...]
