While I quickly recover from a case of the sniffles. It seems to happen easily this time of year around here - the daily temperatures flux from 70 and 80 to 30 and 40 on a daily basis, and the body just has a hard time keeping up! Ella and I stayed on the couch [...]

I know that they could have used it though, they have been at each other's throats since 7:30 this morning. Rest time. I'm sure some of you are thinking "What she hasn't been having rest time!?" In my defense - for the last 5 years almost, I have had a baby and a napper, who [...]

A neighbor (without kids) said to me in the middle of the grocery store with my kids - "I don't know how you do it." She had a smile, but I could see that she was concerned/amazed. Whenever we are together in public, my kids do alright, this day they were two in the cart [...]
