KidzVuz Back2School Bash Ruled


Out of the three blogging events I attended in NYC last month (Blogger Bash, Blog Her and KidzVuz), I can easily say the best of the bunch was the KidzVuz Back 2 School event! It was just packed with so much… well, fun! The fact that kids could actually attend might’ve made a difference, because […]

When Boobs Collide – The Public Breastfeeding Debate

photo 1

I generally shy away from major internet controversies on my blog. Sure I’ll occasionally toss out some pretty heated opinions from time to time (Seriously, Star Wars: Episodes I – III never happened!), but I generally tend to avoid the big debates that set trolls all a flutter. Stuff like politics and religion. Yeah, I’ll […]

My 9-Year-Old Son Talks About Getting a Tattoo

Katie's tattoos

Ryan’s been asking loads of questions lately about tattoos. How do they do them? Why do people get them? Do they hurt? Does it bleed? Does it hurt? Do the needles hurt? You get the picture. After I briefly explained the process to him (not that I have any tattoos, mind you), I asked Ryan […]

Almost Wordless Wednesday – The ’70s Edition


I’m probably the only one who really cares that Wordless Wednesday is anything but wordless. It’s supposed to be a day where bloggers just show off nice big pictures with no text. But everyone ends up writing a novel to go with the pics. So I’ve decided to follow suit, except I’m calling it Almost […]

Sorry I haven’t been updating Mommy’s Busy, Go Ask Daddy much lately. At least I have a good excuse. I spent the last two days in the hospital with pneumonia. And let me tell you, it’s far from fun. It started last Saturday with a high fever and bad cough. I went to the urgent […]
