Most people describe me as a hard-charger, as she-who-knows no fear. But I am scared of something – I am scared to face my feelings about the missed opportunities to help my ADHD son Clark, and the times others have scarred (or helped) him.
A short post about his life in which Clark does not remove any springs from the lawnmower.
Driving hours before dawn in the pouring rain to arrive on the wrong day. Sweet.
I want to ride my bicycle, in the rain. And be 14 again, if only for a moment.
What could possess a woman of my vanity to allow herself to look like this????
Sometimes there are no words. I’ve run across a few of those sometimes recently.
Announcing my collaboration in “a mom’s view of ADHD.” I’m pretty fired up. Clark wants to know if this means even more people will hear about the lacrosse gloves incident, but I told him I felt certain it would not. So, maybe I lied. Oops.
Your kids only say they’ll hate you forever when you punish them for skipping school. And the universe gets the last laugh. Trust me.

We work hard to be this nauseating. Except that nothing inside a relationship is ever quite what it seems to the rest of the world.
Rednecks, rabbis and mariachis. Only in our neighborhood. I love it!

I believe the people have a right to know: there is a serial killer loose in our neighborhood. Hide your electronics.
Most of you probably remember the hilarious scene in Caddyshack where a floater causes mass exodus of the swimming pool, then the pool boy fishes it out with his net and eats it, because it’s only a Baby Ruth? Well, this story is a lot like Caddyshack. For real. Except in a lake, on our honeymoon. And it was a lot bigger than a Baby Ruth.
Whatcha Gonna Do With All That Junk, All That Junk Inside Your Trunk(s)?
Theology – 1. Pamela – 0. Is Jesus consulting a shrink in this picture???
13-hour lock-ins with 3-a-day football practices in 107-degree heat index should have turned Clark the ADHD Wonder Kid into a zoned-out zombie. They didn’t. Whaddya know.
Authorities report their investigation into the murder of 22 fish is ongoing but would not comment on whether the case of the dead family cat has been reopened.
Clark the ADHD Wonder Kid somehow survived another year…happy birthday, son.
Seven years ago today I made a decision that changed my life. For the better. Forever. Happy seven years to me.
