The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

Mom, If a Unicycle has one wheel; Why isn’t a bicycle called a Twonicycle?

That awkward moment: Sitting down to watch a movie with your kids; And forgetting that 1955 had completely different standards, when portraying different races and ethnicities on film. 

Yikes! I completely forgot about this scene in Lady and the Tramp. All I remembered was two dogs accidental kissing while sharing a spaghetti dinner.

Note to self: I will now screen these “classic” films before I watch them with my kids. Regardless of the fact that they are rated G

I hope this works. My daughter sucks her thumb and is starting to bite her nails. Perhaps my $13 investment can save me from paying for years of costly orthodontics.

My son has hit a major milestone! He has finally moved up a level in swimming. Bye-bye White, hello Yellow. 

Full disclosure: I never thought this day would come. For the longest time he had no interest in learning to swim.

When we got the report card, I couldn’t believe my eyes. My son has learned to swim without the aid of a flotation device.
