My Professional Background - Once upon a time, I wanted to be a motivational speaker. Actually, I was a professional motivational speaker for about 5 years.:
This year’s Presidential election felt like nothing less than an horrific cock fight. And, no, that is not a double entendre. So, get your mind out of the gutter, people!

Honestly, it was a dirty, foul (that pun was intended) fight to the bitter end.

Now that I think about it, our dinner this weekend seemed like foreshadowing…



And while I confess that my preferred candidate did not win, I am confident that the King of my heart still sits on the throne. So, my faith is in Him. Firmly. Completely.

Also, I’m on prescription meds.

Kidding…I gave those up years ago.

Stupid idea.

Truthfully, I know that no President can do more or less than God allows in His perfect will. And that gives me great comfort.

And so do pictures of our kids. So I will now bombard you with them:

It is impossible for me to look at this and not smile.

And here’s our little man as he tries to fill daddy’s shoes:

I wish I could just “freeze” her this way for a while…minus the teething and screaming part.

And I guess I no longer have possession of my new, $3 socks from Target.

Now on to other news…like my new video series called “PuppeTEARS: Puppet Therapy for Moms.”

Friends, I’d like to help you get some of your questions answered right here on my blog by a (ahem) trained professional. This is FREE therapy, people! And you don’t even have to leave the house.

Beat that, Obamacare!

Please submit your “Dear Patty” questions via the feedback form, through the comment section below, or through social media (like Facebook or Twitter). Patty will answer them on a weekly(ish) basis here on this blog thingy.

Here are some sample questions to get things rolling:

I think I’ve worn out the whole headache thing. What are some more creative ways to tell my husband that I’ve dealt with his children all day and am not in the mood?


If another kid slaps my kid and his mom isn’t there to see it, can I slap him back?


How can I tell my daughter-in-law that she could really use some parenting classes?

Ask, away! There is NO such thing as a stupid question. And if there is, I’m sure Patty will let you know.

Disclaimer:  Ask your doctor if PuppeTEARS: Puppet Therapy for Moms is right for you. Results not typical. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Limited time offer. For best results, don’t take literally. But DO take liberally.  If you’re convinced that this is legitimate therapy, then you might seriously need to go see your doctor. Soon.

    Dear Patty,
    If my daughter thinks a puppet can solve her problems does she need therapy???
    Thank you,

    I’m surprised there have been no questions so far … and I DO think that a puppet can solve all sorts of problems, especially if wine and chocolate are involved.

      I KNOW! I think people are afraid of a puppet’s honesty. Or maybe her enormous eyes. One or the other.

    The pictures are awesome!  Can’t wait for the vlog…you are doing a vlog, right?
    If, like a tree in the woods, where there’s nobody around, and you haven’t showered in four straight days, do your armpits really stink?

      @KateHall Kate, the vlog is coming soon. I started to do it last night but got a bit distracted with the election.
      And I can’t wait to hear Patty’s answer to your question. She doesn’t tell me her opinions right away, so I’ll find out when you do. 😉

    Thanks for the reminder of our King.  So much comfort in those words.
    Patty -If my 3 children are in a knock-down-drag-our fight, should I step in to restore harmony or enjoy some “me-time” while their occupied?
