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!

“I Love My Mommy Because…”

I want to tell you all about the different kind of joy I have experienced lately–the joy of seeing Evy hit milestones that not so long ago, we had wondered if he ever even would. What sorts of milestones would be be able to reach? A year or so ago, we really didn’t know…and it… Continue reading “I Love My Mommy Because…”

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

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

Evy tends to become whom we affectionately (though somewhat tiredly) call “Mr. Party Boy” when nighttime approaches. He is happier than ever, and we’re fairly sure that if we let him, he would play every night until 11 PM-midnight!! So, 2 nights ago, when Evy woke up in the night to play again, we weren’t… Continue reading 1 to 10

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!!

A New Step…

Remember the good old adage: sometimes you “can’t see the forest for the tress”? Well I certainly do, and it rang true for me this weekend! As improbable as it is for people outside of our little family of 5 to really know what the details of daily life are like in our household, particularly… Continue reading A New Step…

The Gift

I awoke this morning to a gentle kiss on my cheek, and a whispered “I love you” from my hubby. Since I am quite well-known for being a grumpy-bear first thing in the morning before coffee, he quickly follows that up with: “You don’t have to get up yet, I just thought you might be… Continue reading The Gift
