I was part of a movement of "dinosaur moms" when I lived in Maryland (Astrodon Johnstoni is the Maryland state dinosaur.) Which is nothing more than this -- dinosaur moms delight in the half-feral nature of the beasties they parent, even as they whisper Shakespeare and Kierkegaard in their ears at night.

Lace Anniversary

Beloved and I jumped the broom (literally) thirteen years ago Monday. I know, January? But Maryland weather being what it is, instead of the blizzard that we had every right to expect, the sky was blue; birds were chirping. It was a splendid affair.

A little trivia for ya -- Another January 14 marriage is the short-lived one between Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio.

Apparently, this is our lace anniversary. Does that mean I'm supposed to buy sassy underwear? I gotta think of something clever because belle-mere is leaving for two weeks and there goes our built-in babysitter. Ideas?

Yes, sassy underwear is the way to go. If there were any guy that even knew of the "lace anniversary" I'm certain this would be his only interpretation. Happy #13!

Could there be a more magical phrase in the English language than "belle-mere is leaving for two weeks"? Seriously, that would jump-start our love life, with or without lingerie.
