VTMAS No.79: Kids’ First Snow

Leaving in Florida, especially the Orlando area, the chances of seeing snow is very rare. It usually is a timing and even then the teeny tiny specks melt the moment they touch something. There are no words for hearing your little ones ask, “Is it going to snow for Christmas?” “No, honey.” I sigh, this…

VTMAS No.74: Link Wants Pretzels

As a parent, it can be fun to feign ignorance to your four year old or ask a series of questions that will reward you with comedic gold. In this case, it was not what I expected to happen. “Mom! Linky pooped his pants!” Exclaimed my 4-year old. “He’s stinky!” Grinning, I decided to act…

VTMAS No.17: Dump Truck Full of Fish

As a young girl, I mainly did the freshwater fishing with the occasional deep sea trip. Nowadays, my…
