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.

They say that when life gives you Lemons, you should make Lemonade. So what are you supposed to do when life gives you a bowling pin?

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.
