Just Like The Number is making the move to Wordpress in the next few days. If you notice anything wonky, that's why. I'm going to hold off on posting anymore until I'm fully moved and any kinks are worked out.... Continue reading

I guess this only applies if I had the proverbial bucket list readily available to cross things off of. I do have a kind-of, sort-of bucket list floating around on my head, though. If I took the time to write... Continue reading

For five years, summer camp through the Fishers Parks and Rec Department has been a part of our lives. In that very first summer that we lived here, those few hours when Elena was in camp just down the road... Continue reading

I will warn you, the book can be a bit heavy to slog through at times, but there's good stuff in there. So what's your favorite park on your side of town?

I thought that was true as well (about school playgrounds being boring), until I met with a playground rep yesterday and he pointed out the new playground at Cherry Tree Elementary in Carmel. Way cool. We've never been to Holliday Park! Adding it to my list. I also want to check out a park Kelly told me about, an all-wooden one near Geist? Oaklandon Park, maybe? I think it's close to you.

Last year I read a book that fundamentally changed the way I thought about my kids and outside play. Richard Louv's book Last Child in the Woods takes an in-depth look at the impact of nature and outside play on... Continue reading

Well, I am a very great aunt, after all.

I should connect you two via e-mail. I'm sure you could be a great resource and source of hope for Danielle.

In a family of people that would probably find a way to be late to their own funeral, my great-nephew Samuel is a rarity. He arrived early. Twenty-seven weeks early, to be exact. He was born on Good Friday, as... Continue reading

Thanks for sharing those personal links! It was fun to go back and read some of your posts from way back when! It's so cool that you were blogging back then, and were able to capture those feelings. I think I was still trying to figure out e-mail! You know what I would love? To organize a gathering of some of our amazing Indy bloggers that have daughters in this age range (7-12). There are quite a few of us, our daughters seem to have similar interests, and they are all in this unique situation of having mothers who blog about them. Hmm . . . I think I need to get right on that!

In what was probably a terrible timing of events, I chose to watch the HBO Documentary, "The Kids Grow Up" just a few days before Elena celebrated her 9th birthday. In the film, the director chronicles his daughter's last year... Continue reading

I <3 you right back! Glad to hear you're having a fun summer, too!

Eli would love a playmate anytime! My two definitely entertain each other, but sometimes that entertainment is simply bugging the other one . . . which really bugs me! The jar is great. I noticed on other breaks from school that the kids (especially Eli) were looking to me as their cruise director. I vowed this summer that I would help him learn to be more independent and creative in his play.

It's the Klutz books facepainting kit and I HIGHLY recommend it. The facepaints in the kit are from Wolfe Brothers and the quality of the paints is amazing.

I love our park days, too! Genius idea, and just another reason this summer is going so swimmingly.

Well, if your boys are anything like Eli, they would gladly clean *anything* with a toilet brush. Not that I've ever seen him scrubbing the walls with a toilet brush. No siree.

We're in the middle of our fourth week of summer vacation and (miracle of miracles!) we're not even the tiniest bit tired of each other yet. In fact, it rather feels like this summer is flying by. Maybe we're still... Continue reading

June is celebration central around here. First up is Mike's birthday, closely followed by Father's Day. At the end of the month we have Elena's birthday. You would think that by default then, June would be month of cakes galore,... Continue reading

That's what's funny - this kind of stuff only bothers me in my own house. I'm sure there's something I do or some way I operate that would give you heart failure as well!

SEE? You're just as bad as me. Note the alternating colors. Hell hath no fury like a crazy woman who sees two green plates nestled together.

Photographic evidence that perhaps living with me isn't quite the garden party I imagine it to be: Failure to put the plates back in the cabinets just like this makes me stabby. I'd like to think of it as an... Continue reading

Funny, I feel the exact same way about you!

I do, but you have to pay him in boxed macaroni and cheese.

Pretty much just me and the rabbits.

Yes! Even if none of us can keep up with you, at least we'd get to see your sweet face at the finish line! I hear there's something in the works for this fall at Wine at the Line?
