Teach a man to fish, he will eat for a day...

As the phone rang, I saw on my caller ID that Boss was trying to reach me. I picked up with some trepidation. "Good morning, this is Karen." "You say that so...carefully," Boss laughed. "Listen, are you doing my expense reports? Or am I supposed to do them on my own now?" "I can do them if you need me to, I guess," I said. "But they're still pretty straightforward, right?" "Well, I don't know. I can try to do it myself, but I need you to look it over..." I was sort of confused. Expense reports are pretty easy. Then the light dawned. "You've never done an expense report by yourself, have you?" I asked. "No," he said sheepishly. "I've never had to."

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
