Annabel’s school has an awards assembly once a month, and each grade takes turns providing pre-assembly “entertainment.” The first graders were up this past Friday, and they put on a play called, “Wonderful Weather.” It was really cute, lots of singing and pretending to be rain, wind, and the sun. James played the role of…

Let’s Go To The Cubby Hole

My kids have all been obsessed with weird things, but James’ latest favorite thing is definitely the strangest. Over the last month or so, James has become absolutely enamored with parking structures. Or, as he calls them, “cubby holes.” I don’t know what it is about parking structures that have completely captivated him. I thought that…

Lucky Number One

Somehow, it’s been a year since our little leprechaun, Liam, was born. In honor of his St. Patrick’s Day birth, Leah and Ted threw him a St. Paddy-themed bash.

My brother just returned from a long trip abroad, which means his dog, Yoshi, has gone back home. Yoshi really missed Kyle while he was gone, but he and Schuyler have become a tight little pair. After Yoshi left, Schuyler sat by the front door for a while, waiting for him to come back, which…

Sean the Leprechaun came to our house again this morning, prompting me to find this cute video of Annie from two years ago, the first year our leprechaun moved in. If you can’t see the video above, click here. Happy St. Paddy’s Day, everyone!

Four Eyes

Last week, one of Annabel’s teachers pulled me aside to ask me when the last time Annie had her eyes checked. She and her co-teacher had noticed Annie squinting at the board and putting her head on her desk when she was writing. I hadn’t noticed any of these behaviors at home, but I wasn’t…

All American

Annabel is still very into American Girl dolls, which I have made peace with. I wish they (and their accessories) weren’t so damn expensive, but considering she plays with the dolls almost every day I’d say they were a good investment. And to be fair, I personally haven’t spent much money on the things – Annie…

Sorry for the light posting this week! I actually started a new writing gig on Monday, and I spent the majority of my writing time getting the lay of the land. I’m now writing at Mommyish, a fun pop culture parenting site. Some of you who follow my Facebook page might have noticed I shared…
