Crossing the Border into the Kids’ Bedroom

Posted on February 20th, 2017

Recently, my kids got all excited about creating signage. E was the instigator in this, so these – the six most important things to keep in mind at the border – are his handiwork. They can be found on the shared bedroom door. So watch yourselves, folks. There are no border checkpoints, but I’m sure Big Brother […]

Dear Kids: For the record, you adore each other.

Posted on December 2nd, 2016

Our kids are like most siblings: they play together, and they fight together. Sometimes, the screaming is pretty horrifying. And then there are those moments – and those little games and traditions they invent – that warm you right down through to the sub-cockle area of your heart. {For example, there’s this one funny procedure whenever […]

Quotable Moments From My Toddler

Posted on March 31st, 2015

I was reminded by my family last weekend that I haven’t yet shared the weird pearls of toddler philosophy that my daughter has been imparting to us since she learned to talk. Frankly, I haven’t written down nearly enough of them, because life is too busy and my memory for details is shockingly short. Another reason I haven’t […]

Possibly The Randomest Book You’ll Ever Read

Posted on March 16th, 2015

On one of E’s earlier works, Daddy helped him with a short author bio in which it was conveyed that E’s goal is to make 100 books. He is barrelling toward this goal, let me tell you. He’s kind of obsessed with my stapler. Here’s a creation from this past week. I love how he’s unencumbered by the fetters of […]

Kindergarten Quotables Variety Pack

Posted on February 10th, 2015

I realize it’s been ages since I talked about the cute stuff my kids say, and it’s not because they don’t say cute things. Okay, sometimes it’s because they don’t say cute things. At five and two years old, respectively, my son and daughter both have a tendency to freak out about seemingly minor incidents, […]

A Smiley Video for a Happy Frozen Friday

Posted on January 30th, 2015

My kids love the movie “Frozen.” Like almost all kids. And I’m not ashamed to say that I also love it; I’ve probably seen it a dozen times and I could still cry every time, if I let myself. I will most likely go on about the reasons why another time. For now, here’s two-year-old AB’s side […]

NaBloPoMo Meets 100 Happy Days – Day 1

Posted on November 1st, 2014

{Hi everyone! This is yesterday’s post. It was honestly ready to go on the appropriate day, but I have been having major technical difficulties with my blog. So I’m going to sneakily attempt back-publishing it – here’s hoping this silly post will actually post. And there will be Halloween photos – but the technical difficulties extended […]

A Story About Today

Posted on December 10th, 2013

Okay. This story is not actually about today. Last Friday, my mother-in-law – one of the most generous people I know – came to babysit, and got more than she bargained for. She came on the arranged day, even though she knew that Baby AB had woken up with a stomach bug of some kind […]

Kindergarten Quotables: Smooth Operator

Posted on October 7th, 2013

{Agh, “Preschooleristics” no longer applies to my boy! Although, admittedly, a few of these are from the pre-school days.} My little guy is a smoothie in many ways. The Salesman Once when we made cookies this summer, E had one left over. I suggested he put it in a container to keep it from getting […]
