I cracked a tooth. Eating toasted fruit loaf. And not some Han Solo in Carbonite level toasting. I’m talking lowest dial on the toaster. Warmed enough to melt the butter. With a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. To be fair, I cracked the filling. Yes, I have fillings. I have really […]
There comes a time in every parents’ life when they look at their precious little spawnlings and say to themselves, “Good Gods in Hades. What have I created?”
Dear Swimming Mum, You self-entitled git. Usually, I care not about other parents at the pool. You brought your little spawnling to the pool. You are essentially teaching them to swim AND spending time with them** so I don’t usually complain about that front. But when you interfere with others […]

She’s 6wks old and has already thrown down her gauntlet. Zaltu is definitely living up to her name and causing mischief. EG Dad has only ever once come home from work and asked what I did during the day. He lived to tell the tale, and warn others against such […]
