Happy birthday Cameron!

This beautiful boy turns 17 today and I cannot believe it. I am not a parent who longs for the infant stage to return, or to go back to the toddler stage- to ask for that would be to negate all that my son has become since then (it would also […]


    Wednesday Morning Dance Party

    [Cam’s car needs some attention, so Julie is driving Cam and Gabby to school. Julie turns on the 90s JAMS channel.]

    JULIE: Yeah!!!!!! Wednesday morning dance party!!!!

    CAM:

    GABBY:

    CAM: I don’t even listen to the radio. I only listen to Spotify, Mom…. Mom?

    GABBY: …Mom, this is too loud.

    JULIE: Nineties jams!!!!!!!

    GABBY: […]


      The Egg-celerator

      Once upon a time I thought that my days of making crazy crap for the kids’ school projects were coming to a close, hahahahahahaha. Cam came home this week, needing to create a device that could safely hold a raw egg when dropped from a distance of 15 feet. After lots of wild ideas including […]


        I won’t wash it.

        In my parents’ house where I grew up, there is a little closet in the bathroom we always called “Dad’s bathroom.” I used to be fascinated with this closet as a little girl; tall and very narrow, it contained a series of shelves that went all the way up to the ceiling. Dad kept his […]


          Et tu, Guinness?

          They’re probably all about to start sneezing.

          Okay, when I was a kid I did not have allergies, except to cats. As an adult I do not have allergies, except to cats. Then I married Dave, who- for all his physical strength and toughness- is a total Milhouse in terms of seasonal allergies. Which […]


            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 […]


              Kids’ Room Carnival

              Dave has been working hard on the kids’ bedrooms. It’s been probably 5-6 years since we did anything in their rooms, besides repaint and throw new comforters on the beds. (Side note: I let the girls choose their own wall colors last time. Gabby chose two shades of “I Have a Bad Cold” green, and […]


                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 […]


                  How Lacrosse Turned Me Into a Willing Spectator

                  We spent last weekend out of town at a lacrosse tournament. Our team won their bracket, and it was amazing– I have come to believe that lacrosse is one of the most exciting sports I have ever watched. Maybe because the game moves so fast, and is big enough to cover the entire field, and […]


                    Cameron Trivia

                    Super rough-looking shot from last New Year’s Eve. I think we had just been outside, shooting off unexpectedly huge fireworks; we both look a little shell-shocked.

                    Cam had terrible, terrible allergies as a young kid. Like, the maximum sensitivity to the allergy tests is a 6. When he was first tested, the nurse brought […]
