Tomorrow is D-Day

This entry was initially published on my personal blog on September 11, 2006. The day before Littlebit was born. I thought it was fitting to include it here as we prepare to leave to have Baby Bee because it still encompasses many of the emotions I’m feeling right now. Delivery day, that is. After many […]

I hadn’t heard of this until today and yet…

I LOVE the idea. The National Endowment for the Arts is sponsoring a program called “The Big Read” to restore reading as a part of the national culture. How cool! http://www.neabigread.org/ My biggest beef, usually, with “must” read lists, is that they’re very very long. For quick readers, like me, it might make that list […]

This is a Good Daddy.

I know Good Daddies. I have one myself. He’s also a good Grandpa. He takes beautiful picture like this of small children. He’s played Santa Claus. He is constantly on an adventure and the kids flock to him and follow him the rats after the pied piper. He lets kids plant M&Ms in the garden […]

Menu plan Monday

With just a few weeks left before Baby Bee is born, my energy level is pretty much on zero so we’ll be using some pre-made meals and easy favorites for our weekly menus. Monday Chicken and Veggie risotto. There’s really no recipe for this. I cook up some chicken and make the risotto according to […]

Link Love Friday

The Princess has been off school for a week and yet summer is failing to arrive. It’s too cold to play in the pool and kids are looking at the window with much longing. I can’t blame them. The sun is bright and the water looks wonderful, but it’s just not getting warm enough to […]

Littlebit speaks?

Well, not like Martha. Thank God. Littlebit had her assessment with the speech therapist last week. It basically worked out how I had expected. The therapist (and a mommy group friend) doesn’t feel as though there is anything actually preventing her from speaking. She didn’t do a hearing assesment (we’ll do that elsewhere later), but […]

Tried it Tuesday-2nd Edition

We put together another homemade Topsy Turvey this weekend to grow bush cucumbers. Not sure if the little guy will grow as Littlebit hugged it. More than once. Our pepper and tomato plant are already responding well and we’ve had lots of rain coupled with bright sun which is helping too. Hopefully I’ll have a […]

Summer Day 1 plus some Link Love

The Princess has already been threatened with death. She’s fallen on her lovely Princess face twice with end of school exuberance and lost out on a treat for ridiculous behavior. BUT…… we’ve played in the pool and enjoyed the weather at our local community band concert (but not the kids behavior. Ugh. Demons!) And now, […]
