Not much to say today other than, *yawn* I’m tired.  Every day has been jam packed with things to do and places to go.  I’m hoping that things simmer down soon!

9 is Divine!

9 is Divine! February 15, 2010
Today is Monday, but it felt remarkably like a Sunday.
For Allie and her BFF, it was a bonus day to spend swinging in the hammock.  To tell knock-knock jokes.  To belly laugh.  To relish in the fact that life is divine when you’re 9.

H-E-A-R-T Pancakes

H-E-A-R-T Pancakes – February 14, 2010
Before our kids could spell or read, my husband and I would verbally toss letters into the air so that the wee ones would remain oblivious to our plans.  As you fellow parents out there know, plans can change, and children are not always the most flexible creatures.  So in [...]

Best. Day. Ever.

Best. Day. Ever. – February 13, 2010
We celebrated Henry’s 8th birthday with a Bowling Bash, and the entire night he was a whirling dervish.  If he were a cartoon character, he’d be a blur of color flitting across the screen.  He was beyond happy.  And as any parent knows, when your child is feliz, you’re [...]

Sweet Tooth

Sweet Tooth, February 11, 2010
Candy connoiseurs will recognize that white sugar stick from a packet of Lik-M-aid Fun Dip.  A little secret someone (I won’t mention any names) was super sneaky and broke into the Valentine’s Day loot a few days early.  There’s nothing like a portable packet of sugar for the girl on the [...]

Be Strong. Have Faith

Be Strong. Have Faith. February 10, 2010
As I’m busy burning the candle at both ends….as I dart to and from each end of our city….as I collapse into bed each night completely exhausted, I always say a prayer for a young friend.  Currently Jalen is heroically battling cancer, and seeing him fight on with such [...]

The Third Wheel

The Third Wheel, February 9, 2010
Those who know Kate well, know this face and this attitude.   The attitude with the angry eyes, the chin tucked firmly into chest, the arms akimbo.  Yes, that’s the one.  The one where mama throws her arms up in desperation and daddy sighs with frustration.  This is the Kate we [...]
