Education Interrupted

He didn’t particularly stand out in our class, not physically, not intellectually, and not even emotionally — which is pretty telling as his father had passed away shortly before.  He was just a very even kid, although a little more somber than most.  He had the capability of performing better, but chose to be average.  […]

To My Unborn Child

Since the moment of your conception, your existance has been secondary to the chaos that is our life.  I’m very sorry.  We really love you and are very excited to see you.  You have already blessed and enriched our lives in a time I wouldn’t have imaged a baby to do so.  I know you […]

My Big Boy

We made a family trip to Target this weekend. The week before, while at Target in Eagle Rock I was dismayed to see that in the training pants section all they had were the Superman underwear. It is a closer Target to our house, and there’s much less travel traffic, but it is typically understocked, […]

Random Friday

As Monday was MLK day and my husband actually works for an employer that lets the employees take holidays off, he got to stay home and play with Little Red while I went to work. I had left them with a list of groceries that we needed and included at the bottom “finger foods for […]
