I’m coming up for air after sending all of the kids off to school today. We’ve just finished round two of our battle with Hand, Foot and Mouth disease and are waiting with bated breath for the third child to go down. (In related news, coxsackievirus, you can suck it.) As often happens when school […]

I’ve waited a few weeks, or maybe months, to share the news that at long – very long – last, we have three children who consistently sleep through the night. Little A turned 3 in June and with her newfound “big kid” status she has developed quite a competitive nature. In sum, the girl likes to […]

Little A turned 3 recently, and a neighbor gave her a precious Melissa & Doug fairy princess coloring pad and some markers. She’s been obsessed. She comes in from her activities and immediately sets to coloring. She’ll stay there for an hour or so and invite the rest of us to come color with her. […]

From time to time I write these posts where I have a little bit to say about a lot of things. “Crumbs” of information, if you will. You get one of those today. * * * * * * * Maintaining a gluten free lifestyle isn’t an option for my middle child, M. Gluten makes […]

I hope you guys are enjoying Plants-a-palooza 2014 as much as I am. I will write a wrap-up post next week with the lessons I learned and things I will be changing going forward. But please feel free to share your thoughts here or on Facebook. (ad) Don’t forget about the completely amazing Primal Life […]

I was up with Little A three times last night between the hours of eleven and five, and then up for good with her at 5:15. It’s one of those days where cogent thoughts are not forming in the brain. Bear with me and I will toss some goodies your way, though. Just remember to […]

I haven’ been feeling particularly bloggy this week. Hopefully I will get some of my blog mojo back over the weekend and serve up more for you next week than I did this week. But I have some good stuff for you today, so I wanted to take a few minutes to explore more. Before […]

I spent last night in the emergency room at my local  children’s hospital with Little A, who had taken a tumble into a sharp drawer and sliced open her lip. I crawled into bed after midnight and only just now showered the hospital smell off of me, so I am far from competent to write […]
