In Stitches

James is, as I have mentioned in the past, full of energy. He’s also insane. He loves to climb things and jump off. He dives onto things face-first with alarming detail. He runs 95% of the time. So unsurprisingly, he falls down a lot. His legs are covered in bruises, and he’s had more scrapes and…

His Bloody Thanksgiving

As I’ve mentioned once or twice or 500 times, James is a wild man. He’s a high-energy daredevil who does absolutely everything at top speed. It will (hopefully) serve him well when he gets older, but for now it leads to tons of accidents and injuries. I’ve given up on his legs ever being bruise-free,…

Surfing Sunday 7.24

On Friday night, we babysat Liam while my cousin Leah and her husband went to a wedding. The house was pretty nuts, with three kids and a dog — especially when one of those kids is James, and the dog is an energetic puppy. It’s nice to be in this phase where I can have…

Kidz, Stop.

Annabel and James are, as you know, wildly into music. I blew their minds last year when I introduced them to music videos. Honestly, I think James could watch music videos all day. I started showing him Kidz Bop videos on YouTube Kids, and he was obsessed. Annabel quickly became a fan, too, and now…

DIY 5-Minute Moisture-Wicking Headband

I love moisture-wicking headbands (headbands made of special material that pulls the moisture away from your body). They’re great for exercise, bad hair days, or for keeping cool in the summer. However, I have two BIG problems with them. The first is that they’re ridiculously expensive – at least $10, but usually much more. The second…

Easy Fabric Rosette Headband

I have piles of leftover material from all the different things I’ve made, so I thought it was a good time to make some fabric rosettes. I’ve used them to make crowns and belts before, but this time I made a quick and easy rosette headband for Annabel!

Questions On Camera

This post is sponsored by OneDayApp. Thanks, OneDayApp! As I’ve said countless times here, I’m so glad I’ve kept this blog for twelve years. I’ve documented more than a third of my life here, including so many little things I never would have remembered if I hadn’t written them down. I hope my kids get…

DIY Ring Pin Cushion

Today is my grandmother’s birthday, she would have been ninety years old. My gramma, as I’ve mentioned in the past, was very talented with a needle and thread. She was a big quilter, and she was always willing to drop what she was working on to help me hem my pants (she said every petite…

Wattle, Wattle

I’ve always been pro-plastic surgery (within reason). If you can do something that is going to improve your self-esteem, go for it! I’ve known people who were completely transformed thanks to plastic surgery, and the surgery was only a tiny part of it. Their confidence went through the roof. But, I always said that I would never…

Easy DIY Reversible Bibs

I was looking over all the fun accessories I’ve been making for Annie and myself lately, and I started to feel bad that I hadn’t made anything for James. Don’t get me wrong, he really rocks a wired scarf, but I wanted him to have something just for himself. I am nowhere near being able…
