Sister things.

I write a lot on here about my dear, beloved friends, who are like my sisters. We talk constantly, see each other whenever possible and are as close as friends can be. But I am also lucky enough to have an actual sister; She has appeared many times on here throughout the years, and although we ...

She gets her weirdness from me.

This evening, after the kids were fed and we had some family snuggles, the baby was put to bed and I decided to spend some quality time with my pink-haired little girl. We shared a chocolate covered m&m pretzel and she told me about her day. And then we got on the subject of "describing" things. ...

March Forth, With Love.

The fourth of March has been an important day for me for many years. It is a happy day and it is a sad day. First, happy. March 4th is my girl J's birthday, and yesterday she celebrated the big 3-0. I stayed up until midnight so I could make sure to wish her a "Happy Day" ...

I will never forget.

Yesterday, as I said, I had a tough day. I rebounded, though, primarily because of your supportive notes and comments and messages, so I thank you. I feel blessed. Today, however, is a day that I will never forget. And that because today was one of my best days as a parent; one of the best ...
