God shows his hand in so many of my everyday life scenarios - from poop to pork butts.
How could I keep any of that to myself?

(Oh and this is where it all began more than a decade ago when I began writing as the Cape Wearing Mom. My sister actually made me a cape and I even wore it in public. #truestory )

Ever Pray for a Toilet? 

I did. I prayed for the toilet. You might think I meant I had to go to the bathroom so badly, that I prayed I would find a toilet close by. That assumption is a good one considering my well-documented passion for good restrooms and the need to find them often as well as being a toilet paper expert, but […]

A Lipstick Stained Stress Ball in the Church Ladies Room

The day had come. It was time. I had prepared. I had made notes. I had planned the entire week around this. I was ready – or so I thought. Heck, who was I kidding? I was not ready. Not ready at all. In fact, I was so nervous that I nearly brushed my teeth with hydrocortisone cream. Ever been […]

Poop on Aisle 2

You may think shopping for art supplies is a fairly mundane task. My husband would agree with you. But the other day I was standing in front of drawing pencils when I heard the unmistakable sounds of a kid pooping.  Yes I’m serious. So much for being boring huh? While shopping for drawing supplies (new hobby), I became aware of […]

TP Talk Take 2

As you all know, toilet paper replenishment is near and dear to my heart. During this holiday season, I would like to thank all those who are spreading love and cheer by changing toilet paper rolls across our great nation. Your sacrifice is recognized and appreciated. Alas, our work is not done. There are those who simply refuse to take […]

Let’s Talk Toilet Paper

It’s widely known that I am a self-proclaimed restroom aficionado. Public, private, large, small, clean, not so clean, indoor, outdoor, baseball fields, airplanes, eco-friendly flushing systems, no flushing capability at all. You name it, I’ve tested it. Anatomical issues aside,  just trust me when I say I’m qualified to speak on the subject. Part of my role as Secretary of Restrooms is […]

Hooker Heels and a Hess Station

The things we do for our kids. I have always enjoyed helping my daughter get ready for the prom or homecoming or cotillion or the annual pig festival dance or whatever formal occasion we had next on the calendar. There’s a lot that goes in to preparing for these events… that is if you have a girl. Boys take about 27 […]

When You Have to Go

I really had no idea that little boys could come up with so many ways to make our lives more …ahem… interesting. And once the elementary school principal had me on speed dial, I started catching on. On one particular day, my phone rang. As soon as I heard the voice on the other end of the line, I knew […]

Can I list Official Restroom Expert on my Resume?

I am a self-proclaimed restroom expert. Actually you could probably ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I am truly an official authority on all things restroom related. The way I see it, if you are going to be a subject matter expert it might as well be a useful subject. And believe me, restrooms are of the […]
