First Day, Last Day

So fast.  So many months in just a blink.  It seems that fast, doesn’t it?  Wasn’t it just the end of August?  Weren’t we just picking first day outfits and fretting about full days of Kindergarten and first days of Preschool?  Wasn’t I just remembering with horror the things I remembered my seventh grade classmates […]

Oral Immunotherapy-aka Peanut Densistization

Big Daddy and the Princess drove to Toledo last week for our first visit with Dr. Winder. Dr. Winder runs the allergy clinic that will be handling the Princess’s Oral Immunotherpay (hereby known as OIT). Here’s what we know now: 1) The Princess has had blood work done locally. As soon as Dr. Winder’s office […]

Summer Planning: Crafts

One of my favorite thing about having a house full of girls is that I always have a crafty buddy willing to play with some glitter and other goodies.*  Craft projects are usually a pretty peaceful experience here.  Not always, of course.  Usually. Last summer, I bought a shrink plastic kit at Joann’s.  I pulled […]

Sweet Home Chicago Deep Dish Pizza

We’ve lived in Ohio for three years now. In some ways, we’ve acclimated. Baby Bee has developed an “Ohio accent”. We’ve stopped being used to traffic and get a little antsy when we’re stuck in it. It’s just not a part of our day to day lives anymore. I can leave for school drop of […]

Summer Planning: Places

Last week, I outlined how I was planning to make sure we maximized our summer fun.  Over the past few years, I’ve liked to try and work in one outing a week.  Of course, we go to the library and the playground and we meet up with Auntie Awesome to go to the lake for […]

What the Heck, Charlie Brown

Baby Bee loves Charlie Brown. Over the past couple of years, I bought “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” from Amazon Video on Demand and Baby Bee watches them each at least once a week. I’m a lot more up close and personal with Charlie Brown than I ever thought […]

The Princess Takes a Big Trip AND the menu plan

The Princess and Big Daddy are on their way to Toledo this morning to meet with the allergist to start our Oral Immunotherapy process. With the Princess’s permission, I’ll be blogging our experience so others can understand the process and perhaps use it to decide if it’s right for their allergic family member. I’ll be […]

Summer Planning

I know this is going to sound a little crazy and a little Type-A (or maybe a lot crazy and lot Type-A). I have definitely had summers where I felt like we just didn’t DO anything.  I’m sure we did SOMETHING.  In fact, I KNOW we did something, but it felt like I missed a […]

Rain on a tin roof?

This winter, I noticed some black “smudges” on our garage ceiling.  I didn’t worry much about it because, well, it’s a garage and I figured that we, or the previous owners, had probably rubbed something against the ceiling while trying to maneuver it.  I mentioned it to Big Daddy and he agreed that there was […]
