Little Red awoke before his brother this morning. I heard his door creak open, and then mine, and finally he approached my bedside. I kept my eyes closed the whole time; it’s a ritual I do with both boys, letting them think they’re waking me up. Somehow being awake with my eyes closed for the […]Read More Five

But don’t worry, I didn’t fight anyone.” Friday: “If bad guys ever come to my school I’ll just knock off the head of the skeleton and cut the pumpkin […]Read More When Super Red Goes To School (Post Halloween)
It’s all about love, really. My friend Valerie is so full of it that she’s dying to share it! To raise money for their next adoption, this time from Bulgaria, she is hosting a silent auction on her blog. There’s something for every budget (and even a little something from me.)
