We had Little Girl’s birthday party this weekend. At some point, our camera got lost. We believe it took a long, one-way ride on the top of my SUV. (Hubby, buckling her into the carseat, placed it there and forgot to pick it back up. We think.) It was a rough afternoon for us. We [...]

Long-time readers of this blog may be wondering why I’ve been posting less. Others may have a more direct question: Why have I been so quiet about myself? I guess it’s time to answer. My focus outward has been brewing for about six months or so, but it became more pressing about a month or [...]

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of reading an excerpt from Tina Fey’s new book, Bossypants, which was posted all over my Facebook network. Part of a blog post from Baby Meets City, the excerpt was a beautiful, touching, funny poem called The Mother’s Prayer for its Daughter. I read through it alternating between [...]

During the discussions, she said the [...]

Stay Little, I Say

Every once in a while I will pull Big Girl on my lap and realize, as she spills out of it, how much she’s grown. I will invariably ask her to please stop growing — just for a little while. She laughs and tells me that she will try. After a beat she tells me, [...]

She Stole My Mop

I have a cleaning person. I feel guilty about this, although I know I shouldn’t. I’ve got two kids, an injured husband who isn’t around a lot, and I work full-time. If a cleaning lady lets me, for example, spend more time with the girls and less time cleaning bathrooms she is well worth the [...]

We flew back from Tampa last night. I got to board the plane first using my disability pass. (I am half ashamed that I needed it, but very thankful that I had it as you will soon find out.) We sat in the bulkhead seats, which are the only seats I ever want to sit [...]
