Conversations with Drew: #1

"Summer will end soon enough, and childhood as well."
 - George R. R. Martin (A Game of Thrones)

I few months ago I started to document the funny things that would come out of my 4 year old Drew's mouth - verbatim.

I shared many of these on Facebook and people seemed to enjoy - so I thought I would start a little series on here called "Conversations with Drew".

Drew is a rambunctious, curious, active, stubborn, independent-minded, loveable, cute little boy who is always asking why and always wondering about the world around him.

Luckily, like many little people, he likes to think out loud.

I plan on documenting these on-going here on my blog, but I have to do a little catch-up first.

And so today…I present my first instalment of "Conversations with Drew".


August 3, 2015

Drew: Mama?
Me: Yes Drew?
Drew: When will I have hairy balls?
Me: Ask Daddy.

Me: Drew, what animal are you looking forward to seeing the most at the zoo?
Drew: The little doggies.

something a little more captivating than a little doggie.

Drew: I want to dream about being Spider-Man really badly. But I don't want to be him for real yet because the real suit is for big guys and I'm too little.



Falling Back into Place

"Be willing to be a beginner every single morning"

 - Meister Eckhart

Well here I am again.

Yes, yes, yes…I have taken a few days off.

OK…a break.

OK…a sabbatical.

OK…a few sabbaticals.

But life has been cray peeps…and sometimes things fall by the wayside when life gets in the way.

No more!

I'm back.

I know….AGAIN.

Here I am. Hello peeps!!!

I was thinking of starting a whole new blog. Ya know…starting fresh.

But I finally figured that you guys already know me from The Hugging Home. I already have over 400 fracking posts on here…and for the love of the baby Jesus it is a pain in the ass to get a new blog designed, because I kinda did try.

Eff it.

This is my home…my little Hugging Home…and it's where I have hopefully made you feel welcome and it is where I have found a comfortable little space in the blogosphere to share my thoughts and musings.

So you're stuck with me.

Unless you leave.

Or perhaps you have already left…in which case you are not reading this so you can just shove this whole post up your…

….as I was saying.

I need to write again. I am making it a priority again. I MISS MY BLOG PEEPS!

So…here is yet ANOTHER blog post that is basically saying "here I am again!"…and you are probably saying "like what, for another two spectacular posts and then you are going to go hang out under your fracking rock again?!??"

Fair enough.

But that is not the plan. I have really thought about this. Till my brain hurt.

That's a lot of thinking peeps.

So what am I gonna write about these days?

Well…if I TOLD you that wouldn't be very fun now would it?

Now just as an aside…I know that there are a bunch of broken links and shit left in this thing because I lost my original domain name because some lovely person (AKA: asshole…and that is being kind) bought it up after I let it expire when I was going though a major life crisis and tried to feel in back to me for $1000 because of the amount of traffic it had and I said "screw that shit" and then I had to change it and now things got kind of effed up but who the frick gives a shit really…if you are looking for something ad can't find it just ask me and I will try and find it for you…OK?

Oh man…I need to work on those run-on sentences. Oh…but wait. This is my fracking blog and I am kinda famous for those and I make my own rules here so shut up if you are the grammar police…I happen to be a card-carrying member as well and you don't see me arresting myself do you?

OK…so enough of the rambling.

OK…who am I kidding?

Quick update. My three boys are getting older. No they are not yet off at college but my eldest is in HIGH SCHOOL (I KNOW right?!?!?!??!?!!!) and my middle dude is in grade 6 and my little guy is in Senior Kindergarten. They are almost 14, 11 and almost 5.

Yes…while they are older, not much has changed.
Rock on!

I know.

I can't cope either.

Take a breath and let's let that sink in for a moment.

This is totally me breathing.
I know. I look fabulous.
And young.
Thank you for noticing.


As I have gone into before, I am no longer married...but I'm not single.

I have been in a relationship for over a year now and life is purdy darn good on that front. He's a pretty private guy and so I will not be sharing details of our daily routine, our sex life or any of that fabulous stuff with you. I'm sorry. I know you want the low-down but I must show some restraint. Just know he treats me well.

Oh you want a photo? OK. Just this once.

And…he's FINE!
Jealous much?

So when am I gonna start actually blogging again instead of just telling you that I am gonna start blogging again?

How about today?

And so we begin again…
