Are you FREAKING out about this? I know I am

Okay, so I’m kinda freaking out. WTF are we going to do with our kids all summer?!! I know they haven’t officially canceled camp yet, but it’s looking like they won’t be going back in June and I’m not even sure I’ll feel good about sending them in July and unless the gods listen to…

A blog post from my daughter in the year 2044

Do you remember where you were in the year 2020? I know some of you were nothing more than little eggies and tadpoles in your mamas and dadas waiting to be conceived, but I was eleven (yes, I know I’m dating myself). Actually almost eleven. I remember because I’ll never forget my eleventh birthday. It…

A little story about the time our dog ate the guinea pig

Holy crap, you are not going to believe what happened in our house. So I’m tucking Holden into bed and he’s totally stalling by asking me questions he knows I have to answer and can’t ignore… “but Mom, how does the baby get out of the fagina?”… when all of the sudden I hear Zoey…

How to stay home but NOT to turn into that family from The Shining

This sucks. Don’t get me wrong, I know social distancing is super important and saving lives and the Sideburns family will stay home and hunker down because we’re taking this very seriously. But still, it sucks. I’m a terrible homeschool mom, I go crazy without some alone time, I’m snacking constantly, and we’re only on…

Six LITTLE things that can make a BIG difference on your Disney trip

So in case you haven’t noticed, I LOVE LOVE LOVVVVVE one-on-one trips with my kids. Whether it’s a campout in the backyard or a three-day vacation. Giving each other that undivided attention for a good stretch of time does something for our relationship that we don’t get in our crazy everyday life. It doesn’t have…

Spin the bottle and other FUN party games for 10-year-olds!! Not

Ummmm. WTF? So the other night I went to pick Zoey up from an innocent little 5th grade birthday party. As in cute 10 and 11-year-olds. But you’re not going to believe what they were doing when I arrived. Are you ready for this? They were playing, wait for it… spin the bottle. Spin the…

Rise of the Resistance: Tips, Tricks and is this Ride even Worth It

I cheated. Yup. When I heard if we wanted to get on the new Rise of the Resistance Star Wars ride that we would have to get to Hollywood Studios 90-120 minutes before the park even opens, I was like screw that. But then there was this little voice in the back of my head,…
