Family and Friends

Talented

I just adore Annabel’s best friend, E. They are so sweet to each other, and they do almost everything together. When it came time to sign up for the school talent show, E’s mom and I knew the girls would want to do something together – assuming, of course, that they’d want to participate. Which,…

The kids had their regular dentist appointment on Friday. James is…not a fan of the dentist. Like, to the point where I usually have to bring another person with me and then I lay on top of him so the dentist can pry his mouth open. I loooove our dentist but I dread going because…

Fish Parent Of The Year

A few of you have asked if we still have our fish, Bubbles and Uptown Funk, and the answer is yes. Yes. We. Do. As you know, I wasn’t really thrilled by the arrival of the fish, mostly because I was sure they’d die right away and we’d start an endless cycle of “Can we…

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┬ádon’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. They thought of everything, from gold balloons to coloring stations to rainbow food. For entertainment, Leah and Ted had a friend of theirs run a trivia…

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…
