Mother’s Day Gifts Conversion Guide

Yesterday (Mother’s Day) started with my kids coming into my bedroom like this. They even called me Madam. As I ate breakfast, I was brought drawings and was reluctantly given a made-at-school Mother’s Day project from my son, Charlie. It pained him to give me the colored cupcake drawing with the list of “coupons” attached. […]

Charlie and the Mayonnaise

So, the other day, I discovered that Charlie (6) had made and eaten a snack. That’s very independent of him, and I appreciated that he was taking care of himself. What was the snack?

Sometimes, It’s the Little Things That Are So Funny

Note: As I write this, my daughter, Molly, is standing on my chair behind me doing my hair. The first “look” is two braided ponytails that curl up. A la – Wendy from Wendy’s. (I feel pretty.) Okay, here we go: School is out for inclement weather and I took the kids to the Y […]

The only thing better is YOUR sweet baby laughing which is why this drawing by the beautiful and talented Heather Hopp-Bruce resonated with me.  My kids are growing up so fast. I still love their laughter but it’s hard to capture with a camera. Babies just […]
