The move is complete! My archives are a mess of missing photos but they are all in a folder on my desktop and I will be going back to add them in again. I am also password protecting some older... Continue reading

Yeah, that didn't happen. I'm moving the pictures off Typepad with a goal to finish and transport to Wordpress by BlogHer. Then I will try to rebirth this blog. I still miss it. Continue reading

End of the school year. Moved every book in my library. Hand picked 1/4 of the collection to stay with me in my tiny, temporary library (brought on by construction). Boxed some for storage. Worked weekends for extra vacation money.... Continue reading

Because after nearly a month of trying to figure out what to do about this one-more-baby problem, we found ourselves on a Sunday afternoon in downtown Brooklyn. We went to the Transit Museum and you were a little grumpy, so... Continue reading

Originally posted on Who Wants to Know on April 19, 2011 ----------------------------------------------- I avoided the story at first. Because it’s one EVERYONE wanted to share with me. A small boy named Beckett being portrayed by the press as a gender-bender... Continue reading

I mentioned a lot of our "Cons" in previous posts and they are important ones (private school, the psychological thud of 10 years of teens and 40 years of kids, far fewer vacations, pregnancy, infancy...). But there are a couple... Continue reading

We have this Haba playmat Wes made us put on our registry or something amid my objections at price. Another kid would mean it had been more worthwhile. Wes, similarly, has a kid bike seat he put on his own... Continue reading

I don't know. Sometimes it feels like the desire is not at all strong. Sometimes it is. I keep being able to see both sides.

There are a lot of things I wanted to share about the process of slowly landing back at a "no" after a few weeks of serious Only Child upset around here. But I just read months and months worth of... Continue reading

Here's how today started: We are out of coffee. I told Wes there was a leftover cup from yesterday in the fridge but he misunderstood that I meant "for us to share" and drank it all. It was raining a... Continue reading

Mother's Day this year was a little disappointing but it was no one's fault. We spent the day before at Sesame Place waiting 2 hours in full sun so that Beck could meet the Fresh Beat Band. He didn't say... Continue reading

Though it doesn't make sense since I had a perfectly lovely day presenting at a conference and feeling good about my work and learning new stuff, tonight I am strangely down. So I rolled with it and played that horrible,... Continue reading

Epcot is my favorite park so I was really looking forward to spending the day there. This was the first full day with my mother-in-law along for the ride, and she’s been having a lot of trouble with her leg.... Continue reading

Annoying girl child, somewhat too old to get away with being so rude: (pointing at my son) Mommy! It's a boy in a dress! Beckett: (quietly) It's not a dress. Annoying girl's mother: It's not a dress. It's a tutu.... Continue reading

There are a few pictures on the other unwellness, which exists in a strange blog purgatory... I am still hoping to let it be the real unwellness by summer... We didn’t have any breakfast reservations on our 9th wedding anniversary... Continue reading

We had an 8 am breakfast reservation at Hollywood & Vine in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This is by far our least favorite park and we definitely would have skipped it entirely if it weren’t for the new Toy Story ride.... Continue reading

The crew got going nice and early but we still didn’t leave quite enough time for the absolute slog from Magic Kingdom parking to the Magic Kingdom itself. Perhaps this is where I should mention that I have been to... Continue reading

Hi, blog friends. I am determined to get down a trip report type thing for our big Disney trip, so I am writing it day by day and will publish as I do. I'm happy to help anyone plan for... Continue reading

I wonder if it is possible for me to be a summertime blogger, whether I will be able to jump back in like that when I am home this summer. And then I wonder whether I will even have time... Continue reading

I haven't even started the move project. I spent a few days in shock. Then I quilted. I quilted until my fingers bled. No joke. The auction project is done now and it only took ten band-aids and seven (LITERALLY)... Continue reading

I am in the midst of mapping my domain or changing my DNS nameservers or... something. I don't know. I learned enough about all this to make point to typepad a million years ago but I haven't messed with... Continue reading

My 8-year-old blog, when placed in a Word file (sans photos), is 1287 pages long. I am about to investigate moving the giant mammoth over to wordpress, partly to save the few bucks a month I pay at typepad but... Continue reading
