My little B, who was my NICU baby, hilariously out-proportioning the bassinet at 9 pounds–is now my absolutely amazing 5 year old. B has been kind of a peek-a-boo genius. She plays the dumb blonde FABULOUSLY. She’s been working the ‘I love blue and trucks’ for a long time. With the approach of five delights […]
Our babysitter dropped by the other day, long story, but during her brief visit the kids clamored for her attention. At one point, I was nearly on the floor laughing as my 4 year old was out of sight upstairs, but clearly pretending to be in distress saying ‘where’s my breastmilk’… at which point I […]
We were walking across a parking lot yesterday when I randomly said ‘uh oh spaghetti-o’… to which my 4 year old replied ‘mom, what’s a spaghetti-o?’ I was flabbergasted, laughing, and a touch proud all at the same time.

Baby #4 is half baked (20 weeks gestation roughly) and I have an ultrasound next week. Fingers crossed that the rest of our bloodwork comes back okay and that everything goes as smoothly or better than it has been.
Casey is 19 months now. She’s way more of a toddler tornado than I was ever ready […]

B: what’s stark?
me: no, a bird, a stork….honey can we talk about this later?
B: No, we can’t.
B: No mommy, we can’t talk about it later, talk about it now.
me: well honey generally there’s a mommy and a daddy […]
The kids always put their all into the Christmas program at church. This year thankfully there were no angel halos shredding silver tinsel all over the carpet. No ties around heads or rope sashes for shepherds and crowns covered in foil for the wise men. The kids just sang. It was epically bad and beautiful […]
