This year is probably the most exhausting and relentlessly demanding/busy that Mr. Curry and I have been so far in our marriage. Between the three older kiddos and the baby, our full time jobs, my writing career ( multiple news on that soon!! :) ) two dogs, family and friends that would actually like to, you know, hear our voice or be in our presence more than on Christmas and a house full of chores, we are literally not sitting down to just relax or take a moment until 8pm many nights. And that moment is like, A MOMENT AND THEN HURRY UP AND GET YOUR ASS IN GEAR WE HAVE TO MAKE LUNCHES AND THE BABY IS CRYING. Yeah. So when I read this awesome Parenthack, I felt, for a brief moment, both understood and excited to try it out.
Monica and Serge are both writers that grab you with their voice right away, and it's no different when they are in person in your face! on their new webshow, He Said/She Said where they talk about how they met and fell in love, had babies and then discovered their wildly different parenting styles. They recently lost their new house rental in a fire during which they were home with their two littles. Thank God they are all OK, and bouncing back fierce style with this entertaining show- my kind of reality TV. Love these guys!
what i thought love was is so much less than what it is

"Poetry has nothing to do with poetry. Poetry is how the air goes green before thunder. Is the sound you make when you come, and why you live and how you bleed, and The sound you make or don't make when you die."- Gwendolyn MacEwen

"Her looks fading, the vain Lispector became increasingly reclusive and demanding. Addicted to cigarettes and sleeping pills, she exhibited erratic and sometimes imperious behavior. She would call friends in the middle of the night and flee dinner parties for little apparent reason. She had a reputation for being a liar."-<em>NYT on Clarice Lispector
My dear child, who can tell? One can only tell that, by remembering something which happened where we lived before; and as we remember nothing, we know nothing about it; and no book, and no man, can ever tell us certainly.
Some couples don’t ask much of one another after they’ve worked out the fundamentals of jobs and children. Some live separate intellectual and cultural lives, and survive, but the most intense, most fulfilling marriages need, I think, to struggle toward some kind of ideological convergence. Norman Rush
