My mom had Little Girl yesterday. Me, I was working. This week just won’t stop. Okay, so she goes out and, as usual, brings her home with food. In this case she’s got two muffins from the local bagel store — a chocolate chip for Big Girl and a blueberry for Little Girl. They arrive [...]

Big Girl is not a wiggler. She gets a loose tooth and just leaves it alone. She doesn’t ask us to wiggle it, either. She just waits around until it falls out. That’s why Tooth Number One got swallowed with a bite of bagel as did Tooth Number 4. (And why she let me pull [...]

I got a press release the other day touting a flavored water beverage called Hint. I had heard about it, but never tasted it. I figured it was just another beverage filled with artificial colors and flavors like the “water enhancer” MiO. When I emailed a reply the PR woman, she assured me it was [...]

Last night I went to spin class and the woman spinning next to me was pregnant. It took me back three years ago when I was that person making sure I was drinking enough and feeling my baby kick to the beat. (Big Girl used to sleep in my belly during the classes. Little Girl [...]

This past week has been one of the most productive that the Big Girl/Little Girl household has ever seen. My husband and I have cleaned house — literally.
