Is there anything funnier than the language skills of a toddler? The mixed up phrases, the swapped out consonants, the mispronounced words…hearing this stuff is much-needed comic relief after a long day of meals, snacks, missed naps and a messy house.

Thanksgiving has never been my favorite holiday. Not that there’s anything wrong with it — I just don’t really get excited for Thanksgiving. Maybe because the whole day is centered around a big, roasted bird. (Now if the main course were mashed potatoes, that would be a different story.)
One of my dreams has come true.
I AM GOING TO SEE THE U2 360 TOUR.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving yet?
I’m not. I’ve thought about one or two dishes, but that’s about it. Luckily, I’m not hosting at my house, so I’m not too concerned about the lack of forethought. But it’s time to get the talk going with my mom and mother-in-law to see what our plan of attack will be this year.
Six months. I can’t believe it’s been six months. But I look at the calendar and yes, this week marks six months since I left my job as a news anchor and producer to stay home with my son and launch AnchorMommy.

(In the interest of full disclosure, what I’m about to show you is not a typo. It’s just really, really ridiculously funny.)
haven’t been feeling quite myself lately. I have a persistent, yet mild, sore throat and a general feeling of malaise. (I just love that word. Malaise.) So I’ve been mixing up a daily cocktail of raspberry-flavored Emergen-C and a drugstore brand of cold remedy similar to Airborne. It’s quite good, actually…
Life with an almost three year old is all about intensity. Intense highs, intense lows. There is little to no in-between. And as frustrating as the fits and tantrums can be, the simple joys make it all worth it. Case in point: rolling down hills.
I sure miss my work friends.
A bunch of us got together recently and had a total BLAST. It reminded me that I was so lucky to work with such great people — they’re funny, fun AND talented.
Our little meetup also reminded me of something else…
