Writing regularly on the joyous and frustrating worlds of parenting and marriage, Linda Sharp leaves no stretchmark unturned!  Enjoy these samples of her humor.  All work is owned and copyrighted by Linda M. Sharp.  Requests for reprints are appreciated and may be made directly to Mrs. Sharp.

God's Won't - When God is not responsible for our actions, yet somehow gets all the blame and/or fame.

Down On The Farm - Her three little pigs may actually be daughters and her John Deere is a minivan, but make no mistake, a Mom's job has more in common with a farmer than you know!

Husbandsickness, Or Sick of My Husband? - Ask any wife . . . she would rather have three vomiting children and a dog with diarrhea than have her husband come down with the sniffles!

Would You Like Fries With Your Lawsuit? - So, now people want to sue McDonald's for making them fat?  I believe they have supersized their stupidity.

Night Moves - Forget scientific studies on Mars, carbs vs protein, or the sex life of the gnute.  What Linda really wants is for someone to determine what exactly happens when her children decide to make their Night Moves.

Clothes Minded - I remember when I first made the connection between what I wore and how I felt. It was middle school, 7th grade. Boys had taken on a more intriguing quality, and although I was not "advanced" in the maturity stakes, I did understand the need to appear beguiling in order to turn a head...
