It’s 3:00 pm. Rest time is over, and I look up as my children casually bound down the stairs to join me in the living room. I notice Molly is still wearing the purple headband she had on earlier, but now her hair appears to also be in a ponytail – which I find curious,Continue reading “Scissornado (the day my kids cut their hair)”

Owen appeared at the top of the steps and yelled excitedly, “Mommy! Daddy! I clogged the toilet. But then I prayed! And Jesus answered my prayer! And it flushed!” Oh how our children make me laugh. Is it hilarious that my son prayed for Jesus to make the toilet flush? Yes. But do I believeContinue reading “Care Enough”
The flu made me do it.
The flu makes me emotional. Partly because I am a champion pity-party-thrower. Partly because… well I have no idea why. But I do know that I laid in bed for a shameful number of hours watching the 2nd season of Parenthood on Netflix and bawled like a baby. While watching the aforementioned shameful number of hoursContinue reading “The flu made me do it.”
This and That
Before I try to pick up where I left off in Africa (Day 5 forever, baby!! That was for you, Ginny.), I thought I’d post some other random thoughts that have been floating through my brain. Mostly having to do with how cute I think my kids are and how much I’m enjoying this seasonContinue reading “This and That”
I turned 31 on Sunday. Here are some highlights of “Life at 31” thus far: – my husband (who is only 3 WEEKS younger, thank you very much) is now referring to himself as “cougar bait” – my 2-yr-old son has successfully lodged a raisin so far up his nose that no manner of probingContinue reading “31”
And here we are, all the way into February! Friday night brought us some fantastic snow! That, of course, meant that Saturday morning was full of fun times outside for Matt & Owen! (and fun times inside for Molly & me!) It never ceases to amaze me that my 2-year-old can look so bigContinue reading “Snow!”
Owen & Friends
Here is Owen with a train in every pocket of his cargo pants. The boy loves trains. And pockets. "Lellow Duck! Cheese!" Owen's family picture with Blue Duck, Lellow Duck, Little Duck, and Monkey.
Playtime with Molly
Owen already loves "playing" with Molly… Molly "watching" Owen play with his trains. Looks like Molly is great at playing cars. Owen proudly shared his blocks with Molly. What a good brother. 🙂
Matt taught Owen how fun it is to yell into the fan… here's what I caught on tape… Apparently, Ava did hear Owen yelling for her, because she came to stay with us over the weekend! We went to the park, and we played with our toys, and we did lots of dancing and runningContinue reading “BFF”
“Discussion” with Owen… the sequel.
If you read this post, then you may notice the beginning of a trend… Here's a recap of the mind-numbing interesting conversation I had with Owen yesterday: Owen: All done. Me: You're all done playing with your blocks? Well, let's play with this now. Owen: No. Me: How about this? Owen: No. Me: *with wide,Continue reading ““Discussion” with Owen… the sequel.”
