A sure sign of warmer weather


We set up the water table today.

This is always a hit with the kids.

We dig out all the water toys.


Hope everyone plays nice…

and gets soaking wet.

I’ve been buried under my TiVo backlog


I should post more often.  But my excuse is my TiVo.  We were so backed up on shows that we needed to watch a show in order to free up space to record another one.  It was stressful.  Especially this time of year when we have all the finales.  I think we are now out of the danger zone and have enough space to at least get us to Sunday.


So what have we been up to?  (Bullets!)

  • We discovered Sean HATES peanut butter.  He will try to wipe it off his tongue and if I’m really lucky he will also puke.
  • Meghan’s dance recital is just a few weeks away.  When the parent watch the class practice the routine she giggles the entire time.  This should be interesting.
  • Sean flushed his toothbrush.
  • Facebook has decided that I don’t need to run some apps because they never load for me.  This has freed up a surprising amount of my time.
  • Sean knows some of the Hi-5 dance routines and dances along with him.  I’m sure his father is proud.
  • Meghan is obsessed with The JumpAroundsThis cannot be a good sign. What kind of music will she be listening to when she is twelve?  Nevermind, I don’t want to know.
  • I think The Real Housewives of New Jersey just may turn out to be the BEST SHOW EVER.
  • Sean starts his group sessions for Early Intervention next week.  Two and a half hours long.  Its been almost a year since I dropped him off anywhere.  I’m interested to see how that goes (for both of us).
  • Ryan is playing softball which means he gets home pretty late some nights.
  • Eating a Big Mac after 10PM is a bad idea.  Trust me.
  • I have not seen LOST yet so I am avoiding most of the internet.

The End.

Let Me Show You: Mother’s Day Gift


I think my new cookware set may be too pretty to use for cooking.

Wordless Wednesday – Up, Up, Up




Monday, May 04, 2009



This past weekend we were visiting family and the kids got a chance to see a working dairy farm.

Sean "moo'd" at the cows. Meghan got to feed the baby calf. And we all saw how they milked the cows. Meghan was upset when she was not part of the milking process. "What's my job?" she asked.
