  • A Geek’s First Convention

     his past Saturday, A. attended her first geeky convention. The convention she attended was the Knoxville Comic and Anime Con which was held at a nearby expo center this past weekend. To be honest, I didn't have very high hopes of the convention. My first geeky convention was Dragon*Con when I was in my twenties, which was a massive event ...
  • Middle School Theatre Production

    When I returned from my big conference in February, I was able to look forward to the middle school production of The Wizard of Oz, in which A. got to play the role of the Door Keeper. What door keeper, you might ask? The one who was at the gate to Oz, of course, the one who lets you know, ''Nobody can see the Wizard, not nobody, not nohow!'' It ...
  • It's a Girl!

    Life has been so incredibly busy and crazy these past few weeks that I've completely neglected to share the news we received back during the first week of February. Thomas and I will be bringing another girl into the family, and A. will have a little sister in just a few more months. We scheduled the anatomy ultrasound for early in the morning ...
  • Our Whole Lives

    I recently enrolled my daughter in the OWL program at my church, much to her dismay. This is not a topic she is particularly keen to discuss or even think about. Not only would she much rather be engaged in her preferred activities, and not only does the program demand that she spend time in a social learning exchange with others, but it's also ...
  • Hope is the Thing with Feathers

    This entry isn't about A., exactly. This entry is more about me, and about how 14 years of experience at being A.'s mother has really influenced the way I see things, now, and the way I move forward with my decisions and the direction of my life. For those of you who don't know, I'm 34 years old, and I will turn 35 before this new baby is born. ...
  • From the Archives: An Artist In Residence

    In this entry from the archives, I explore my daughter's creative mind, and share some of her artistic creations. September 9th, 2006: In some ways, the similarities between my daughter and my own lonely seven-year-old self frighten me to no end. In others, I am continuously amazed at how very different my daughter is from anything I have known, ...
  • From the Archives: Exploring Aachen, Berlin, the Eifel, and the North Sea

    In this entry from the archives, as we continued our summer trip to Germany, A. and I explored many different cities, and she even made a fast friend despite the language barrier. July 16th, 2006: I'm totally behind in relating my adventures, so I don't imagine I will come anywhere close to doing the last week justice. You'll just have to settle ...
  • A. & The Flu

    A. is in the process of recovering from the flu. For those of you who have followed this blog for a while now, it will probably not surprise you to learn that A. rarely gets sick. And for the rest of you who are familiar with teenagers in general, it will probably not surprise you to learn that illness becomes a big dramatic deal in our household. ...
  • Watching My Daughter Become A Teenager

    I love my daughter because she's paranoid about missing her TCAPS. ''I can't get sick,'' she says. ''If I miss school, I'm screwed.'' I love my daughter because she fills her agenda with dramatic annotations: I love my daughter because she creates ''remixes'' of characters from various series and writes new stories about them. (i.e. ...
  • Learning to Draw Manga

    A couple of weeks ago, A. noticed that there were a couple of interesting books on our bookshelf. These books were ones that Thomas bought when he was in high school, a series of four, entitled ''How to Draw Manga.'' A. took them off the shelf and started flipping through them. ''Is this how to draw anime?'' she asked. ''Well, it's related,'' I ...
