Monday Morning Music – Capsized

Where has the time gone? That's my typical, yearly response when I realize my kids have only FIVE more weeks of school until summer vacation. So many plans, so much to do, so much undone.

Monday Morning Music – HBHBHB

"And meanwhile the man was falling from space And everyday I wore your face Like an atmosphere around me A satellite inside me" How is this song NOT about David Bowie?

It's from their recent release, White Women, and it is fun (and clean) so play it for the kids... Continue Reading →

Mother’s Little Helper

So often I’m asked, ‘Hey Rockmom, how do you stay so relevant?’ Because you know, these days, it’s not enough to refer to yourself in the third person or date Jake Gyllenhaal (God knows we’ve all tried) or even replace your bottom teeth with diamonds. Q: if you don’t brush, do you get summoned to... Continue Reading →
