Booby Trap

My path to their bedrooms. I’d have to be as limber as Catherine Zeta Jones in “Entrapment” to make it through this booby trap!

Thank You!! sends a heartfelt thanks to, and especially to:

Cathy Sharick for picking SMKR for the video: Top Five Blogs TIME Writers Read Daily:,32068,104488320001_2000153,00.html

And to Steven James Snyder for his piece on SMKR in’s Best Blogs of 2010:,28804,1999770_1999761_1999737,00.html

I am so excited and grateful!  Wow.  Thank you!  Welcome to any new visitors – may SMKR make you laugh and cringe, but mostly laugh.  Thank you to the amazing fans who’ve put SMKR on the map.

Extra thanks goes out, as always, to all our beloved shit-ruining kids – you’re worth every challenge, all the mess, and every broken item.

Sincere thanks to all,  Julie

Library Book

My toddler likes to read…and destroy.  This library book didn’t last even 3 minutes in our house. Now I have to figure out whether to buy a replacement or tape this one up and send it back.  See, my kids even ruin my moral compass.
