In years past, I haven’t realized how much I hate candy… I mean, what it does to my son. Now that he’s 3, he’s obsessed with it. He can’t stop talking about it. He whines and begs and pleads for it before I even have time to pour a morning cup of coffee. He wants […]

Leyna was born in the middle of winter; and while it was balmy, nearly warm the day we brought her home, within weeks, we were trapped inside our house, held hostage by an ice storm. There were a few weeks of spring that we got out, but she was still so young then. I’m not […]
I planned to write something sweet and/or witty here, but I’m still trying to recover from the HEART ATTACK that game gave me. AND I WAS CHEERING FOR BOTH TEAMS! Remember, we’re A House Divided. Anyway, hope you enjoyed Kendall’s musical and nose-picking talents.
The latest addition to the Mommy Truths series (which I’ve been having so much fun with lately) is not a “mommy” truth at all, but from a male perspective, courtesy of my new friends over at HowToBeADad.com.

Somewhere along the way on this blogging journey, someone at Nintendo thought I might make a good brand ambassador. I honestly don’t know what blog post they stumbled upon that did not make mention of chunks of my nipples falling off or detail my slow spiral into insanity as I drowned in pee and potty-training […]
If none of your toys have working batteries, you might be the 2nd baby. If you wear onesies that aren’t new, but “clean enough,” meaning there are only a few small stains, you might be the 2nd baby. If your first taste of cake comes long before your 1st birthday, you might be the 2nd […]
Kendall’s really taken to the game of baseball this year. I think this can, largely, be attributed to all the softball games he’s watched his daddy play since this spring, as he sat in the dugout. Though, I know his love for it also comes from his ability to actually participate. He lives to run […]
