But We Grew Here

And then he said: Let’s sell the house and move to a new one. My life has not been the same since. What was my husband thinking? Fast forward seven and a half months to our accepted offer. This moving thing was really happening. What were we ...more

Who Is that Woman with My Son?

Who is that woman with my son? She just stands there as Philip messes up the craft. At this table, the public library has a project in which a coffee filter is supposed to be glued to the top of the green rectangle of construction paper to become a ...more

A Little Ice Cream Before Dinner Never Hurt... RIGHT?

We live in Maine and this "eternal winter" is making my kids stir crazy which is in turn making me run out of ideas to keeping them from driving each other up the wall. I'm already hanging from the ceiling. So when I found out a few days ago that ...more

Did Your Barbies Play "The Bad Game"?

My favorite doll when I was in second grade was a soft-featured, frizzy-bunned, slightly plump version of Barbie. (She was less expensive than an actual Barbie because my mother saved money every way she could, and my toys were often cheaper versions of popular playthings.)...more

SURVEY: What Would Your Dream Work/Life Balance Look Like?

We all feel the stress of too much to do and not enough time—and possibly the most time-pressed of us all are parents with full-time jobs. Some companies are attempting to address these work-life challenges to make more productive employees who stick around longer. Sabrina Parsons, the CEO of one of these companies, will be featured in a segment of Al-Jazeera America's program America Tonight on Monday, April 24. ...more

Kirsten Dunst, I've Got Your Back

Kirsten Dunst recently got blasted for some comments she made about gender roles and just because someone doesn't agree with her, does not mean Kirsten is "kind of dumb about it."  But according to Erin Gloria Ryan in Jezebel, Kirsten is indeed "kind of dumb about it" since she apparently favors traditional male and female roles within a relationship. ...more

Easter Sunday 2014

What a gorgeous, gorgeous day today was! And what gorgeous, gorgeous girls I have!The girls woke up early to find their Easter "baskets." We don't have a traditional basket we use every year, so I end up buying some sort of basket/container every single year and it has made me wish I invested in nice baskets when they were babies. But this year I had the brilliant idea to use cute (and super inexpensive) baseball caps to hold all their goodies! ...more

Happy Easter

I will have a full post on all of our Easter festivities later this week, but today I wanted to share with you this selection from our Good Friday service. This is absolutely my favorite Easter song to sing and it is so emotional that sometimes I can't even get through it. I am one of two second sopranos - you can see my big melon head poking up above our director Katherine - and this is such a ...more

The House Where Everyone Plays

Tweet When I was little, I had the house where everyone plays. In fact, it was the house where everyone plays outdoors, not so much indoors. But we had outdoor games of all sorts, tetherball (yes that DEADLY playground sport) and other games always ready ....more

Leighton 19 Months

This month we have seen Leighton's vocabulary and word attempts take off. He pretty much will attempt most any word he hears, and I already see improvement in words he's been saying. Cereal has come from "eee" when he first started saying words to "ee-all" and now "cee-all." And phone was "gone" and now "pone." He attempts all kinds of words with ee on the end, leaving out the middle: po-ee (potty), soh-ee (sorry), bu-ee (buddy) ....more
