Changing and Growing

It is time for a change. I have been home for more than 3 years now, since before Bug was even born. I am so thankful that I’ve had the opportunity to be home full-time with my kids. It’s amazing watching them learn new skills and try out their first words. I love visiting the […]

Sick Again?!

It seems my kids might be sick again, or maybe sick still, since they haven’t recovered from their last illnesses, yet. Ugh. When your child tells you that he “just wants to take a nap” you habe to know that something’s going on. Please, oh, please, let them get healthy and stay that way for […]

Good Days, Bad Days

Today was a bad day. LadyBug woke up at around midnight and didn’t fall asleep until about 3. Big Guy took care of her (I do not function without enough food or sleep, in that order), but I didn’t get to sleep until 1:30 or so myself, and then woke up again when he came […]

Birthday Month is Over

Not sure how Bug will handle the end of birthday month, but I’m glad it’s over. Too much cake (can you believe it?), too many presents (although they’re all a lot of fun) and looming thank you notes.

Yay!

( Big Guy )

I finally convinced Big Guy to help me out with my new website project. Yay! Now I can actually move forward…

The Eleven Doors

Bug has excellent language skills, but he often repeats things as he hears them which is… well, through a 3-year-old filter. The alphabet song frequently turns into, “…H I J K Elmo pee…” Today we watched Snow White and the Seven Dwarves for the first time. He kept calling it “The Eleven Doors.” No matter […]

Nature vs. Nurture Again

When Bug was about 11 months’ old, we walked out of the house and he pointed and said, “Car.” I don’t think we had any toy cars at the time and none of us had talked much about cars. It was the beginning of his love affair with all things vehicle-oriented. Then came LadyBug. I […]

Happy Birthday, Big Guy

( Big Guy )

Big Guy’s birthday. Baked a cake (from scratch) and even made a decent dinner. All in the midst of a chaotic day. Our anniversary is next… a blissful weekend on the beach with no kids. Heaven.

Ichi, Ni, San…

Bug started his karate classes today. Technically, it’s more of a pre-karate. He had a blast. I can’t wait to see him in his gi. It’s going to be super cute. Next week, I’ll have to bring LadyBug with me. I’m interested to know if she’ll want to join, too. She just might… and I […]

Birthday Season is Here

Big Guy’s birthday is October 1 (coincidentally, he was born on the day that DisneyWorld opened – must have been fate). Bug’s birthday is October 29. We also have various sibling, niece, nephew, aunt, friend birthdays over the next month and half. Time to start the shopping… Tomorrow, Bug and I are going to have […]
