The Rock is amazing in so many ways and I love him dearly. But he does have this one extremely annoying personality flaw that I suspect he shares with many men. In the car he’s an ABSOLUTE. CONTROL. FREAK. He … Continue reading
I just recently was introduced to the phrase ‘First World problem.’ Yeah, I know, it’s been around awhile. But I’ve been busy. Today I had a flash of inspiration (it happens…sometimes) when Pebbles was whining endlessly, on and on, about … Continue reading

When we play Twenty Questions with Pebbles the person who is It states the beginning letter of the object they’re thinking of. Our way of sneaking in homeschool under the guise of fun. Pebbles: Okay. I’m thinking of something that … Continue reading
The Rock and I took Pebbles to the county fair recently. Pebbles loves the fair. She’s a total daredevil. She loves rides that make The Rock and me lose our lunch. Like this horrendous thing. That’s Pebbles in the striped … Continue reading
. . . that Pebbles is a screamer? Seriously. I don’t know why this child’s screams haven’t shattered all our windows. They should be measured on the Richter Scale. We actually tried to have that done. Here are the results. … Continue reading
