Ooooh it was dark when those little people woke up on Christmas morning. They dashed around opening gifts and it was all over so soon. Since the table sits still for the most part it is what was documented from the mornings' activities. I then forced the boys to sit... Continue reading

Hoping we all have a super weekend. Mine would include a full night of sleep. But that's just me. If you haven't checked out Yoko Ono's Bad Dancer yet you must do it now. I fell in love with it. Happy weekending Continue reading

Or, I guess you'd call it soccer. The Under 6 league. Two games a weekend, often against 7 year olds, which seems a bit extreme, but I guess times have changed since I was his age. We're a few games in, now. We celebrated his first goal with milkshakes -... Continue reading
