I'll admit it. Lately, on Saturday mornings, I've taken advantage of the opportunity to sleep in. Today, however, Radar had an early-morning call for a play he is in, so I found myself up at 7:00. After he was on... Continue reading

This is what my kitchen's baking area looks like when EVERYTHING has been removed and the counter scrubbed super-clean. At 9:30 at night. Why would I be doing that, you might ask? Well, it might be that I dropped the... Continue reading

Sometimes I sew things that I almost hesitate to put up for sale because I like them so much. This is one of them. I fell in love with this organic cotton knit fabric a long time ago and bought... Continue reading

Superman recently had another foot surgery, and pain management has been a challenge this time around. We are now three weeks post-op, and his pain is definitely improving, but he still wakes up at least once every night needing comfort... Continue reading

Here's a little sneak peek of what's going on in my sewing room this week! I adore this Heather Ross fabric. It is very HTF (hard to find) these days, but I bought it a long time ago. For years... Continue reading

This morning, Radar (age 10) woke me up at 3:30, 4:30, and 5:45 to tell me he couldn't sleep. Then, at 6:15 he came in and told me I really shouldn't be pressing the snooze button because it's not healthy. Continue reading

My kids are a lot older than they were when I first started this blog, so they don't say as many unintentionally funny things as they used to, but they still make me laugh every day. Every once in a... Continue reading

Yes, three years. That's how long it's been since I've blogged. A lot happens in three years of a family's life. I see that I need to change my blog banner because tiny shoes, baby toys, and cheerios are not... Continue reading

What is it about kids and puzzles? They seem made for each other. My kids have always loved taking the box of pieces and ending up with a picture. I think puzzles are a good analogy for life. You get... Continue reading
