Little Brothers, Tampons, and Lollipops

Written by mom - 8 Comments

Written on one of our four year old’s t-shirts are the words “It’s my brother’s fault”. Whenever he gets in trouble, he always tries to blame it on a brother (usually our 16 month old). Now, I’m not saying I’ve been neglectful, but any parent whose been busy knows that sometimes the little ones don’t […]

Written by dad - 2 Comments

Awhile back I mentioned that we’re moving, and that we were headed out of town to look for a house — preferably one with a forest in the backyard. Well, I’m pleased to report that the trip went far better than we expected — even though we were cooped up in a hotel room with […]

Well, it’s Easter morning, and I’m pleased to report that our eight year old is still a full-on believer when it comes to the Easter Bunny (as well as Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy). So sweet and so innocent. My wife and I had been thinking that this past Christmas might be the last […]

One Lovable Dude

Written by mom - Leave a Comment

Our “little middle” son (four years old) is so sweet that he makes sugar seem tart. He’s very into hugs, kisses, and terms of endearment of all kinds. In fact, he can’t live without a hug and kiss each time I leave him at preschool and each night before he goes to bed. Throughout the […]
