Happy birthday Gabby!

Fourteen years ago, Gabrielle Cait was born at almost 9pm. After dithering around all day, she suddenly decided to make her entrance- so quickly that my doctor (who had gone home for dinner) wasn’t even there for the delivery. Also I did not get my epidural and yes I am still salty about that. […]

    Happy Mother’s Day!


    We have had a busy weekend! On Friday we celebrated my niece Emily’s 21st birthday- but not too late into the night, because we left the house at 5:30am the next morning for Cameron’s lacrosse tournament. Which his team won with ease- the championship game score was 10-1. Dave and I attended a work […]

      Happy Easter!

      Run, kid. Bunnies don’t have tentacles.

      In a few minutes, the kids and I are headed to my mom’s to color Easter eggs, and I cannot stand the Easter holiday. I know I’ve told you that before; there’s just something lame about it and this tradition is one of my least favorites. So, […]

        Sixteen Things About Cam

        I didn’t know whether I was having a boy or a girl when I was pregnant with Cameron- but with all my heart I was hoping for a boy. I think it’s because I wanted this boy- this handsome, strong, determined kid who makes our house livelier, happier, and has draped the place in […]

          Mardi Gras!!!

          UPDATE: I believe I have fixed that awful issue where none of you could see the pics. Let me know if you are still having trouble.

          We had a great trip this year. On the way home, Dave and I agreed it was one of our best ever. Once again, some photos for you:



            Happy Valentine’s Day!

            Happy Valentine’s Day, Davey. Thanks for the following things, among others:

            Still thinking my jokes are funny. Making me breakfast every single morning. That cute way you chew your gum when you’re focused on something. Making yourself into a lacrosse guy from the ground up, in service of your son. Getting up last night to […]

              Halloween Crafting Redux

              I knew you would want to see how the girls’ costumes turned out:

              Addie J, the jellyfish.

              Lishie in her Day of the Dead costume.


              I TOTALLY thought these two costumes were going to end up as the, “Nailed it!!” side of a Pinterest Fails meme. I feel like I got […]


                My intention, on August 8, 2003, had been to pass my weekly NST and go back to the office. Instead, after thirty minutes or so, the resident came into the room and said, “You have a beautiful contraction pattern. We’ve called for a wheelchair to take you to Labor and Delivery.” After twelve hours of […]

                  Happy birthday, Gravy!

                  Dave had to leave the house at 4:30 this morning to be at a job site. It’s his birthday today, so that triple-sucks. My girls had this covered, though. Look:


                  Those are a series of birthday notes (where’s Cam, you’re wondering. Well, last night was his lacrosse team banquet, at which he […]

                    Belated Mother’s Day Love

                    I’m late, because I spent the weekend out of town with my girls. Gabby was competing this weekend (she’s interesting: she won a ribbon, a medal, and a trophy- but none of those competitions are the ones she cares about, so she’s still disappointed), and so we made a girls’ weekend out of it. […]
