One if my favorite things to do is watch HGTV. If I'm alone and I need background noise, that's what I put on. And sometimes, Catie joins me. (And Paul cringes because he knows we'll be getting ideas--hahaha.) The shows I prefer best are the ones where they buy a beaten-up house and then remodel… Continue reading Doing Parenting Right (I hope…)
The past week has been quite exciting, aka--really busy. Last weekend, I had a "sleepover" at my mentor's place because we had a local book-signing event at her city's library. The event itself wasn't all that exciting. It was fairly small with only a small percentage of readers interested in romance novels. (The event was… Continue reading The Past Week…
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!
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!
When I think of polar opposites, I think of contradictory things: black/white, good/bad, tall/short. But when you think about it, that's actually a misnomer. Because both polar points on Earth are ice cold. Catie and I are quite different. More like polar ice and desert heat. She likes bright sun; I like rain. She likes… Continue reading Black vs White: Polar opposites
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
