Mom-jitsu

momjitsu parenting fail mom skills raising kids running away foodie food lover comic
I heard this play out from the comfort ( and relative quiet ) of my upstairs office. Part of me wanted to jump out of my chair, tear down the stairs, run outside, and rescue our daughter, Kaylee, from the dangers of our upper-middle class suburban neighborhood. The other part was chuckling and weighing the consequences of subverting the parenting skills of my wife, Jodie. The later won. Our wayward daughter returned, starving, after a couple of laps around the block, forever validating my wife’s Mom-jitsu skills.

Rocking the ‘Wave

Star Wars introduced me to blue milk. My mom introduced me to blue steak.

When my mom got her kitchen remodeled in the 1980’s she was adamant about placing the microwave as close to the refrigerator as possible for convenience. Most of our food was prepared in an assembly line; from freezer, to microwave, to plate, to table. It wasn’t until I was older I figured out what all the other boxy objects ( the “stove”, for example ) in the kitchen were actually for. My mom sure could rock the ‘wave though. It was the Instant Pot of the day, capable of doing almost everything …

Now that we are all entering the holiday season under COVID restrictions I’ve realized that there is one thing that I miss more than anything, having good friends over to eat.

I Love Cheese

This hasn’t happened …. yet, but I wouldn’t put it past my cheese-loving daughter.

My oldest daughter loves cheese. She will often hover around when I am grating it and, when I am not looking, scoop some up and run off leaving a trail of shredded bits behind her. She is a true cheese-lover, or “Turophile” ( “Tyros” is Greek for cheese and “Phile” is English for Lover ). As of yet she hasn’t actually asked me to lick the cheese off of the grater, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

She takes after her old man, but unfortunately my dairy days are over. It’s bad for prostate cancer and, as such, that cow, at least for me, has gone off to pasture.

Take care. Stay healthy. Live life.

Just a little more sugar …

My dad passed away a year ago. I found it amusing that he loved hummingbirds so much given than he, too, thrived on sugar. Whereas his tiny feathered friends sucked it from his two hummingbird feeders, he got his own fix from cookies, brownies, and other sweets. When my dad passed away I inherited the feeders. I drew this comic in jest of his love for sugar … and hummingbirds. I miss you, dad.
