Fair warning, dear reader, the below is almost as long as a novel, but it'll be an interesting read. Grab a drink, sit back, and enjoy the chaos... Approximately two weeks ago, D (the sort-of-boy-toy, remember him?) asked if I would be interested in going with him and his kids to a sort-of-nearby amusement part… Continue reading Bad Decisions, Chaos and Calamities
Hi there, Catie here! How's everyone doing out in internet land? We're mostly good. I'll be honest it's been a mixed bag for me over the past couple weeks. Good News First: Mr. Paul got a new job!!!!! Yessss!!!! We all knew it wouldn't take him long to find a new job once he started… Continue reading Sunshine and Rainbows – Only Sometimes It’s Not.
Any and all relationships have surprise moments. When you're in a poly relationship, those moments happen a little more frequently. Our most recent "surprise!" moment was when Paul got home after work, and Catie & I told him that we were all going for a quick weekend getaway. That's right. Catie & I wanted to escape… Continue reading Surprise!
September has been incredibly busy for me, and so far, it hasn't stopped. Which is good and bad. Here's the thing... I like to bounce. I'm in the middle of a novel, I volunteer as the treasurer for my writer's group, I paint and opened an Etsy shop for my doodles, I have a full… Continue reading Such a Flake
If you have no kids, and have no intention of ever having them, this post may not interest you. Unless you want to know our background and how we handle things. I will admit, I'm not a good parent. My example was a bipolar/paranoid mother and an (occasionally) alcoholic father. My extended family wanted nothing… Continue reading Logistics – The Brilliance/Nightmare of Co-Parenting
I think I've mentioned that Bina will be starting college in the fall. To help pay for it, she got a fed loan. Looking to educate her on the commitment that comes with a loan, especially this type of loan, I went through every paragraph with her, explaining what everything meant. And then, I got… Continue reading Sunday Funnies – Murder!
Short background. T, the youngest of our family, is a little quirky. She has autistic characteristics, but not enough to be called autistic. She has ADHD characteristics, but not enough to be diagnosed with ADHD. She has this, that, and the other thing, but not enough for an official label. Whatever she is, she's high… Continue reading Monday Funnies – A collection of boyfriends
It's funny what people think when they first find out you're in a poly relationship.I've never thought of myself as a sexual deviant. There are moments when I wish I had a more adventurous soul, but honestly? I like my comfort. Have I "done it" in the woods? Yes. Have I "done it" in a… Continue reading A Poly Reputation
Hey, everyone! Bina here. I'm the 17 year old, the middle of the three kids that my wonderful parents have. After some talking, my parents let me create a whole post on my own. On to the actual topic of this post: the child's view of having polyamorous parents. Originally, Catie was only, "mom's super… Continue reading The Child’s View
Catie has mentioned that Bina and I break into song all the time, for no reason. Today, Bina was singing Buy Me a Rainbow from Family Guy, because why not? The stupid song got stuck in my head. An hour later, I grumble, "Bina, I hate you right now." Catie hears me from the kitchen… Continue reading Hating on Bina
