Welcome to Autumn's Running Late: a genuine blog to humor and empower your day. Or night. Because I'm probably running late again (with reflectors and mace). This is my creative outlet to share my transition from engineer to homemaker, boast the victories and laugh at the shortfalls. I’m staying up late but you can read in the morning.

A collection of the crazy things my kids say


When Crosley was one, we told her she couldn't go on the grass because there was cow poo poo on it. The next day some punk high schoolers were standing on the lawn, so she pointed at their feet and said, "cow poo poo". They jumped off and she's been making us laugh ever since. She's a constant reminder that there's something funny to be said every day.
