The commute for the new job isn’t bad. So far the longest it has ever taken is 25 minutes. This is great given that the average commute in LA can be up to 90 minutes long. That said, my husband is only driving 10 miles, it isn’t like we live in the Valley or the […]Read More Corporate America is a Different Planet from Stay-at-home Housewives Who Used to be Teachers
Little Red has really taken to my old Cabbage Patch Kid, toting it around the house, kissing it, and changing it’s diaper. It’s really sweet to see him be so protective to the baby.

I realize that as a mother I’m lucky to get any dreams at all (and normally I don’t) but this makes two nights in a row that my dreams have been untangible, unrealistic, and uncomfortable. I’d think it was just be, and Little […]Read More Child of Nature
For the first two hours they entertained themselves. Parrallel play is really more appropriate a term than sharing, but they did a bit of both. I’m so glad that we own more balls, trucks and books than both boys could hoard, so no one went without. Once our playgroup arrived it was downright easy to […]Read More From One to Three
