Seriously fantastic.

Sometime last year I came across an idea online. I mentally filed it away (see, I don’t exclusively use Pinterest) to use on a day when everyone was falling apart and it was only 9:30 in the morning and we desperately needed something fun to do that wasn’t watch TV for once because dammit, I […]

Because that is the way my life is.

Today we all woke up on time and happy. It would not last. Within the hour I was in full-on beast mode, trying to round up everyone’s socks and shoes and tutus and backpacks as we prepared for school/dance class, screaming classic mom-isms like “Close your mouth and eat your cereal!!!

Glarghhhhhhh. It’s been two days of hibernation, but today we had to go out. Had a doctor appointment this morning, so there was no choice. We were going out. Of course it took us like 4 times as long to get out the door. I’d boot, hat, mitten, coat, and scarf one child, then turn […]

Three months old and awfully photogenic

Three months ago Fiona was born. And now she is so big. And crazily cute. And she LAUGHS. And today we took loads of pictures. With gorgeous, natural light photographs like these, you’d think I’d gone to school for photography or something… this business of mine is going to go somewhere eventually. I know it. […]
