Don’t.

“Don’t get too comfortable. Don’t swim in the happiness. Don’t revel in the joy. Don’t bask in the light; the darkness is right around the corner, little lady.” Don’t. “Don’t make that new house your ‘forever home’ just yet. Watch how I can penetrate it’s walls, wreck it at my whim. Watch me suck away… Continue reading Don’t.

This just can’t be!

6 nights ago when we were getting ready to ring in the New Year with our dearest friends, I brought up an idea I had heard on Gretchen Rubin’s “Happier” podcast (anyone who knows me well, or has followed the blog in the past, knows my fondness of Gretchen Rubin, and of mostly all things… Continue reading This just can’t be!

2 Years Ago Today, Tomorrow, & the Day after Tomorrow…

On this Christmas Day of 2018, I feel so much joy, so much excitement from watching the happiness erupt on our children’s sweet faces as we enjoyed love and play all day. Such deep happiness listening to our Evy saying “Merry Christmas” to us, and really being an active part of this holiday for the… Continue reading 2 Years Ago Today, Tomorrow, & the Day after Tomorrow…

I See You

I’m realizing tonight that I haven’t written much lately. I used to write here 1-2 times weekly, and that pace has slowly dwindled to 1-2 times monthly. And there’s a very simple reason for that: this blog of mine is fulfilling it’s purpose beautifully. It has been the outlet that has allowed me to safely… Continue reading I See You

Find 9 Strawberries…

As I sat here this afternoon with our Child Development Services representative, we’ll call her “S” for short, it dawned on me all over again just how far our Evrett Bug has come. Even as I sit here typing away at this, with Bug right next to me playing with the alphabet, I feel almost… Continue reading Find 9 Strawberries…

100!!!!

With Evrett’s big appt coming up on October 5th with our “head honcho” (his genetic specialist), I kinda thought I would be more nervous. Afterall, we have no idea what he is going to say; will he inform us that the final stages of testing are complete, and that we have an official diagnosis for… Continue reading 100!!!!

The World Doesn’t Stop Spinning…

I haven’t written much in a few weeks now…which is quite odd, for me. I’ve thought about writing a lot, every day, actually. But somehow, I just couldn’t bring myself to grab the laptop. Maybe it’s because….life has been busy? Anyone who is a teacher, or has children (or is both a teacher AND a… Continue reading The World Doesn’t Stop Spinning…

Fruits & Veggies

Since Evy was about 14 months old, his worrisome diet has been very limited, and has remained almost exactly the same as time has gone by: Milk, Toast with Peanut Butter or Nutella, crackers, bear paws, sometimes Cinnamon Raisin Bagels, dry cereal such as Vector, Cheerios, or Fruit Loops, Nutrigrain Bars, Squishem’s (for those who… Continue reading Fruits & Veggies

To be ok with not being ok…

I mentally paced back & forth all weekend about this post. I thought of making it in to more of a “look on the bright side” kind of entry, in which I would turn every fear I have for Evy in to a beautiful rainbow. After all, changing the lens through which we view things… Continue reading To be ok with not being ok…

Reading Numbers!!

Today was no ordinary, run-of-the-mill Monday. Not by a long shot… It felt as if the Gods/Goddesses of the Universe smiled upon us! My afternoon at work was lovely; I’m settling in to the position of legal administrative assistant even more, and thus am finding my own rhythm. This was also the first afternoon leaving… Continue reading Reading Numbers!!
