House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

Are You The Parent You Thought You Would Be?

I really thought I would be the cool mom.
I thought I would let my kids watch whatever they wanted. Ratings be da**ed! 
We would watch MTV together. 
My children would pick out their own clothing and I would never roll my eyes at sparkles.
I would never use the dreaded word...inappropriate. 
Yet, here I am. I am the parole officer of all things inappropriate.
Meet me In The Powder Room today and chime in. 
Are you the parent you thought you would be?

  1. It always does Kerry!!!!

    My husband and I thought we gave our kids (28 & 22 yrs old) a very easy time and we still get, "When I have kids...That you had me do." Did they think I was going to do their homework???? Kidding aside, I thought I would never hear that line.

    I even said I trusted them at parties and if they had one too many, just call and I'll pick you up a block away, so your friends wouldn't make fun of you. Thought I was being cool with all this teenage stuff...Who knew?

    Oh, well.
