I pretty much abandoned all hope of sending out Christmas cards this year. The dread of shooting a family photo just discourages me more and more every year. But because I bought the cute Charlie Brown stamps and I want... Continue reading

May 3, 2015 What an amazing day! Waking up in North Carolina to Parker's 6th birthday was lovely, and he was very excited although his understanding of what would happen was a little cloudy. He was asking about cake, and... Continue reading

On Sunday I had this fairly lame photo assignment from The Hippo that took me to Benson's Park in Hudson to photograph dogs. I don't even know why I agreed to do it because it's never worth the stress involved,... Continue reading

I had a trip planned to Boston's North End with some friends, but things kind of fell through and I refused to let the opportunity pass, since I had already had plans to go. So Dave offered for him and... Continue reading

My resolution to blog more in 2015 is not going so well. As it turns out, March has been a complete wash out. Mostly because all of us were sick in March, so everything became a blur. In the beginning... Continue reading

This year we did exactly what we did last year for Feb vacation, which was to head up to North Conway and stay at the Red Jacket Mountainview Resort so we could play in the indoor waterpark, Kahuna Laguna. Another... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, Drew and I were sitting at the table, and he quietly asked me, "Mom, when am I going to take an exercise class?" He knows that Parker takes gymnastics classes, and swimming lessons during the week... Continue reading

Earlier today, Parker was thinking about bad dreams and asked me what I'm scared of. And I said cancer, and getting sick and stuff. He was very concerned and asked what is cancer. I just said it's a bad sickness... Continue reading

Drew hates haircuts. I may have mentioned this. Like, we have to shut the window in the bathroom (in the summer) so the neighbors won't hear his shrieks and howls and think we're abusing him. It has gotten a bit... Continue reading

On Saturday Drew was invited to his classmate Konnor's birthday party..... at a Cross Fit gym! It was interesting because I'd never been in one of these places, and didn't know that they did birthday parties there. But apparently they... Continue reading

I went to the dentist earlier this month, and when they ask you, "how's your teeth, any changes?" I just kind of mentioned that I was having some all over sensitivity to cold. Nothing specific, not any tooth in particular,... Continue reading
