Crib notes

ShareSeren has spent this first year of her life sleeping in a travel crib. We got it when we lived in a teeny tiny NYC apartment. It served well for Karis until we moved into an actual house and inherited a cute Jenny Lind crib from a family friend. Brecken also spent the first year … Continue reading »

Here there be dragons! (infant/toddler costume dragons, that is!)

Share    Last year was a totally lame year for us in the Halloween costume department. I played the I-just-gave-birth card and didn’t dress up. We let the kids pick out cheap costumes at Target – they were THRILLED. Ingrates! (One day they will appreciate my hours of labor at the sewing machine to make … Continue reading »

You’ve got mail

Share   Brecken loves to draw, but he really has no interest in printing. He regularly takes twice as long to finish work than his fellow classmates. When homework calls for printing practice it’s like pulling teeth to get him to focus. So I stopped fighting him on it. Instead I went to the craft … Continue reading »

Officially aged out of prime marketing demographics

ShareI come to you today older and wiser, Internet. My 36th birthday was on Wednesday! It was a wonderful day full of doing whatever the hell I wanted. (Consequently, the house was a disaster and homework folders almost didn’t get filled out.) My birthday present to myself was feeling good in my own skin. I … Continue reading »

Good riddance.

ShareWe recently had our streets slurried. That’s where a bunch of miserable men come around and put fresh black gunk on the road in the hot, hot sun. (Seriously, I hope these guys make a LOT of money.) The end result is a very pretty, smooth new road. Ta-da!   I have some very exciting … Continue reading »

Turnabout is fair play

Share   This child. She is mobile. Very, very mobile. She’ll only crawl on her hands and knees a few steps, but she’s been scooting around like a baby seal for weeks now. And she’s FAST. She does an army crawl like a wounded soldier, refusing to use her left leg, scooting along propelled by … Continue reading »

The shag was a drag, now the rug doesn’t bug.

ShareWhen we moved in to this house we bought a thick, green shag carpet for the family room. Living room? I never know which room is which. It’s where the FAMILY spends most of its time LIVING. That room. The rug held up decently for the first two years, but eventually it began to show … Continue reading »

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fi- NO FISH SEX ON THE BEACH!

ShareLast weekend Mimi convinced me to go on a grunion hunt. For those of you unfamiliar with grunion, no, they are not small trolls that grant you wishes if you pull their hair as their name would suggest. (At least, that’s what the name grunion conjures up in my brain – friendly trolls.) They are … Continue reading »

The dog days of summer

Share   Tesla puked all over the carpet. Twice. So we put her outside until her stomach settled. Brecken thought she looked lonely and sad out there, so he insisted on sitting with her. I couldn’t help eavesdropping as he told her quiet stories of times he’s thrown up on the carpet, and how she … Continue reading »

Night fever, night fever

ShareJesse took the kids camping with a high school buddy last night. I stayed home with the baby for what was supposed to be a relaxing, quiet night, but what actually turned out to be a night of inconsolable screaming. I still don’t know what was wrong with Seren. She was fitful, waking up twice … Continue reading »
