Mama – When Baby Get Here?

February 4, 2009

I know it has been forever since I’ve written over here and I am really disappointed in myself about that. My kids are growing up so quickly and I really want to do a better job of capturing the moments… I just haven’t been. So, in the sake of wanting to remember this one, I’m […]

Ducks and Butterflies

September 15, 2008

I have always had a soft heart for animals of almost any kind. (Sorry snakes and rats… not you!). When I was growing up, we lived on a small 5 acre “farm”. I hesitate to call it a farm… I think it was more of an experiment for my parents to test out the country […]

I’m just putting this out there under the category of “Things that make me go hmmmmm…” about my daughter Kelly. I bought this Inch Worm riding toy for my youngest, Ella, last spring.

Kelly has become very attached to a little frog sticker and a ring. Over the past week she has been taking these two items with her everywhere. Anytime someone notices (which it is hard not to because she shoves them under their nose) she proudly exclaims, “This is my special ring and special sticker. They […]

The Olympics have made a big impact in our household over the past two weeks. Today it was with great sadness that we bid farewell to the most memorable (to me anyway) Olympic games of my history. I am not sure if having kids made me more interested, but this was the first Olympic games, […]

Pole Dancing

August 21, 2008

Ella loves to dance. An even stronger love she has is taking off her clothes. Ella can’t stand to have clothes on. I know… quite the future she has, isn’t it? Dancing and stripping. If we are at home, Ella immediately takes off her clothes and either puts on a swimsuit or her PJ’s. In […]

The First Day

August 18, 2008

Jacob’s teacher decided to torture the parents the first day of school today. As we were dropping the kids off, she said “Make sure you pick up the blue note on their desk.” Oh, I know this trick. It is the trick where the teachers leave some kind of note, poem… something to ensure that […]

First Day of School… Or Not

August 15, 2008

It was Wednesday morning. We were all sitting around, finishing up breakfast and the kids were anxiously awaiting their playdates scheduled for the day. Around 9am, the phone rang. It was my good friend Jennifer. Her: “Hey there… is Kelly going to school today?” Me: “Ha – very funny.” (Assuming she is just trying to […]
