Hello, Old Friend.

Hey there, it’s been a while. I’ve been itching to write, but I can’t seem to make any words come out of my brain. You know the feeling?

Anyway. Let’s just open the wound here and worry about that later.

Here’s to 2017.



A Night Out With Beauty and the Beast

Yesterday was my dad’s birthday, and to celebrate, the kids and I took him to Starlight Theatre and out to eat. It may not have been his first choice to see the touring production of the fairy tale musical, Beauty and the Beast, but we all had a great time.

The stage […]

They Listened (and I’m So Proud) #ltym

It’s been two days since we had our Listen To Your Mother show, and I’m still processing (and needing a nap).

What I can say right now is this:

~~I’m so glad my husband and two oldest were there.

~~Our cast brought it. They were pros, truly, even though most of […]

We’re Doing Okay, Valentines Moms.

I haven’t had the time or energy to make anything crafty for the kids for Valentine’s Day (I didn’t even help with the first grader’s box, she and her big sister did the whole thing). They all asked for Louise valentines (I can’t make that up), so I spent five […]

Dental Hysteria

I cringe when I see wiggly teeth in a mouth, but when it comes right down to it, I can pull them out with the best of them.

EB has had “shark teeth” for several weeks, and the baby teeth in front had gotten progressively looser.

Last night, we just decided […]

I’m Too Soft.

This cat. THIS. CAT.

He used to be an outside cat and then he started coming in in the winters and now he apparently thinks he needs to be inside all the time.

He’s old and stinky and old and crotchety and old and pees on EVERYTHING that’s left in the floor […]

Because Neon is Sneaky.

Hey guys, you wanna plays spies?

I’m in my {air quotes} “spy suit.”

I have another one that’s neon.

Things That Make The World Go ‘Round

Remember the bug Ervin had, after Ivy and before Henry? Yeah, it’s my turn. So I’m writing this from the couch, on my phone, totally bummed about missing a meeting tonight and phoning it in for #nablopomo.

These are a few of my favorite things:

Skinny peppermint mochas

Animal print leggings

The color pink

Chocolate […]

Sunday Target Memories

I came across this photo in my TimeHop just now (I love that app).

This was a day that we had gone to Target (obviously), and while I pushed them around in the double cart, they sang nonsense songs together. To the point where they had a lot of old […]

Why My Face Hurts

I spent my night last night with a group of incredible ladies, eating too much delicious soup and salad and munchies, laughing and crying and talking. It was perfect.

Then I came home to a preschooler with a stomach bug, who slept beside me with an empty toy bucket to puke […]
